Myers would have had a 1,000 yard season if not for missing 2 games during the fall of 2002 because of a sprained ankle. He finished with 980 yards and 14 touchdowns. He will be playing both ways this coming season also seeing time at the strong safety spot on defense. Mike is currently in the middle of track season running the 100, 200, 4 x 100, and 4 x 400. He has a 4.2 GPA and took the SAT on April 5th, but has not gotten the results back yet. Obviously, academics are a high priority, as Myers will have no problem qualifying. He plans to major in Psychology in college.
In regards to USC, Mike loves the campus among other variables. However, the first words out of his mouth were "Tailback U"! He is a long-time Trojan fan. In fact, USC is his ‘dream school". Other schools that are favorites include Cal, UCLA, Washington, and San Diego State. None have offered as of yet. His parents would prefer for him to stay local, but Mike is open and plans on taking all of his official visits. He does not have a timetable regarding a commitment decision, but if one certain school offered, he would commit shortly thereafter.
Myers is a very sharp prospect who brings a lot more to the table than just stats. He will be a great representative as a student and athlete for the school who is fortunate enough to get his signed letter of intent. Mike Myers is one to watch for the class of 2004.
