Cali 300-pound OL to visit WSU this month

WHEN OFFENSIVE LINEMAN Noah Myers landed his offer from WSU last week, he knew it would make a big impact on his recruitment. It was his first Pac-12 offer, something he had been dreaming of for years. CF.C spoke with him about Washington State, his recruitment and more.

Holding offers from Montana and Weber State heading into last week, Myers, out of Walnut Creek, Calif., felt like his first Pac-12 offer could be coming soon. He had been speaking with WSU and area recruiter Jim Mastro for the past two months and was patiently waiting for that offer to arrive.

Last Wednesday, it did.

"I spoke with Coach Jim Mastro on the phone and he offered me," Myers said. "He told me how they liked my film and how my physical style of play was really showcased.

"Coach Mastro told me it's been years since they've offered a prospect solely on their film without meeting them in person. He liked how nasty I was and he told me it was clear I loved the game of football."

WITH HIS WSU OFFER now on the table, Myers wasted no time in setting up an unofficial visit to the Palouse, which will come later this month.

"I'm visiting WSU on July 25," Myers said. "I'm really looking forward to going up there. My plan is to go to the University of Washington on the 24th and then go to WSU the next day. I've spoken with Coach Mastro and Coach Clay McGuire about the academics up there and I'm excited to check everything out.

"I know Washington State has the new facilities and the new coaching staff has brought a ton of new energy to the program. I want to go up there and learn more about the kind of education I'd be getting and about the football program."

MYERS HAS BEEN busy visiting schools this spring. The 6-5, 300-pound hoss has taken visits to Cal, UCLA, USC and ASU. Myers said that following his visits to UW and WSU, he'll likely be done taking visits.

"I'm hoping to make my decision in the coming months," he said. "The recruiting process started a little late for me, but I want to make sure I take these final two visits before I decide. I want to make sure I see all the schools interested in me before I make a decision. I don't want to rush anything, though."

He added that WSU is standing out right now.

"They were my first Pac-12 offer and that meant a lot to me," Myers said. "I'm really looking forward to going up there later this month. UW, Cal and UCLA are also sticking out to me. They have great academics and football teams."
