Visiting California OL leaves WSU blown away

GOING INTO HIS WSU unofficial visit, offensive lineman Noah Myers had a lot of questions on his mind. After a Friday trip to the Palouse, the 6-5, 315-pounder tells CF.C those questions were answered.

ALTHOUGH MYERS DIDN’T commit to Washington State over the weekend, Myers did say the visit did play a big role on this recruitment.

“The coaches at WSU have told me how much they like my style of play and how they want me to bring my nastiness to the program,” said Myers, who is pictured above with o-line coach Clay McGuire and running backs coach Jim Mastro. “I came into my trip with an open mind and I was really blown away.

“I want to talk with my parents before I make a decision and commit. This trip definitely makes me like WSU a lot more.”

Things could not have gone much better during his WSU visit, Myers said.

“It went really well,” Myers said. “I had the chance to meet with Coach McGuire and Coach Mastro in the new coaches offices and it was really nice. They have me a tour of the new facilities and we grabbed a bite to eat.

“The new facilities and the new building was great to see. They are some of the best facilities I’ve seen in all of the trips I’ve taken. The new weight room is great and the views of the stadium were incredible.

"We asked about my major, communications, and they have a great program over there. We checked out the new football facilities and the old ones. But not the communications hall. We didn't have time.

Myers, who also tripped to UW on Saturday, was joined on his Palouse visit with his mother.

“She was really surprised about the town and she liked it a lot,” Myers said. “We both did. The setting in the surrounding area is beautiful with the hills and the farms. It had a nice homey feel to it. The town is all WSU, too. Everyone supports Washington State and it feels like a big family out there.”

GOING INTO HIS TRIP, Myers said he was looking forward to seeing all the new facilities, but at the same time, he had a lot of questions regarding the education. Those questions were answered, he said.

“I was really curious about the communications department, because that’s what I’m planning on getting my degree in,” Myers said. “They have a great program over there, which is important because academics are big for me.”

Myers added that he is still hoping to wait a little bit longer before committing to the school of his choice. In addition to WSU, he holds offers from Montana and Weber State and is receiving interest from UW, Cal, UCLA and Arizona State.
