Myers Has Busy Weekend

Sachse, Texas athlete Kent Myers competed at the Elite 11 and NFTC over the weekend.

Sachse, Texas quarterback Kent Myers had a busy weekend last weekend. On Saturday he competed at the Dallas Elite 11 in Valley Ranch amongst some of the nation's top signal callers. On Sunday he moved down to receiver and competed at the Nike Football Training Camp that was held in Allen.

Myers is getting interest at both positions for good reason. He started for Sachse's varsity as a sophomore at receiver and last season he accounted for over 4,000 yards and 45 touchdowns at quarterback.

The 6-foot-1, 175-pounder feels his best position at the next level is at receiver, which is why he worked exclusively at the position at the NFTC. He turned some heads along the way.

"I think I did well, I didn't miss any passes and I was happy with that," he said. "I played quarterback all of last year so me coming out at wide receiver I thought I played pretty well. I competed against some top athletes, so that was good."

Myers says he's still open to play whatever position gets him on the field, whether it is at quarterback or receiver.

"I'm still open for both so whatever is open on the table for me I'll go with," he said. "I know a few people out here that said I did well and that I have a future at wide receiver so I'm looking at that."

Currently Myers doesn't hold an offer but that should change by the time spring ball rolls around. He's received strong interest from TCU, Texas Tech, Baylor, Arizona State and New Mexico among others. He visited TCU nearly two weeks ago to watch one of the Frogs' scrimmages and came away with glowing remarks about the program.

Although TCU can't call him for a few more days, he's reached out to his recruiter, Dan Sharp, a few times since his visit.

"They can't call until April 15th so I'm just waiting for that day but I'm still keeping in touch with Coach Sharp," Myers said.

For now Myers is focused on baseball, where he's also a standout. He plans to visit other schools in the summer and already has one visit planned.

"I'm going up to Boise State, I'm going to see them in the summer," he said. "That's it for right now that I know of."
