Future Coug sees bright crimson future

ISIAH MYERS, a Cougar commit and 6-0, 170-pound wide receiver ranked the No. 25 overall prospect in Central Florida by one source, had a different view of the USC game than many of the fans did.

That's because recruits and fans see wins and losses differently, as has been documented many times over the years in the CF.C archives.

Myers, when asked about the setback, focused on the bright spots. He also expressed confidence that a turnaround is on the way.

"The game wasn't as bad as (the score indicated), that first drive out was pretty exciting, they came down the field and scored. And I really didn't expect them to go dominate over (USC). But they showed they can play, for the most part, with them. So it didn't really bother me (and) when we come in it's going to be a different story," said Myers.

Myers, like his Olympia High teammate Henry Eaddy, also had his mom come along on the trip and said that added to the overall experience.

"It was my mom's first time to come to the school so it was pretty fun with her, watching the way she reacted to everything, like the Spirit Walk. We got to watch pre-game warm-ups too, it was all pretty exciting…she liked the scenery and how nice it was. And when we got to the school, she liked how down to earth and nice the coaches were," said Myers.

Myers has 10 catches for 148 yards and a TD in three games so far this season. He's rated No. 25 in the Orlando Sentinel's 2011 Central Florida Super60.

"We also got to see the whole student body and hang out with all the players and experience a game, so that was all pretty good," said Myers, who said he got some quality time with all the coaches and especially Rich Rasmussen and Chris Ball.

As for his verbal commitment to Washington State, Myers was succinct.

"It's a solid commitment," he said.
