Myers sticking with the Mustangs

After taking an official visit to Texas A&M this past weekend, Seaver Myers says his commitment to SMU is stronger than ever and that he will be signing with the Mustangs on Wednesday.

After taking his official visit to Texas A&M this weekend, Seaver Myers has decided to stay committed to SMU.

"I'm solid to SMU," said the 6-foot-6, 280-pound Myers. "I will sign with them on Wednesday."

That's huge for the Mustangs, as the offensive line was a position that needed to be addressed in this recruiting class because SMU is graduating all five of last year's starters.

Now SMU has have five big, strong offensive linemen committed to their 2012 class in Myers, Chase Walling, Sam Rice, Christian Chamagua and Chauncey Briggs, who weigh an average of 291 lbs. and all but the 6-4 Rice are 6-foot-6.

Myers, who was recruited by Adrian Klemm, has been committed to SMU for quite some time, but was entertaining a few last-minute offers. There was a good chance he would have switched his commitment from SMU to A&M, but he didn't get the best news in his meeting with the coaches in College Station.

"[Offensive line] coach [B.J.] Anderson and [head coach Kevin] Sumlin basically told me that I was a back up choice for them and I probably wouldn't play a lot," Myers said. "But last week, they told me the opposite."

The Aggies loss is SMU's gain and Myers is really looking forward to Wednesday's National Signing Day.

"I'm very excited," he said.
