Official visit reaffirms WSU verbal for Myers

WHEN OFFENSIVE LINEMAN Noah Myers arrived to Pullman this past weekend, he was already a verbal commit. Yet, there were still things he wanted to experience during his trip. Getting a closer look at the facilities was one thing, but meeting Mike Leach was also high on his list. He got that chance and it was worth the wait, he told CF.C Tuesday night.

“The trip went great,” Myers said. “Meeting Coach Leach for the first time was awesome. When I took my unofficial visit over there (July), he was out of town. This time we had the opportunity to meet face-to-face and talk.

“He had a lot of great things to say about the program and where they are headed. I could see first-hand the program is moving forward since they almost beat Oregon. They’re building something special up there.”

Myers verbally committed to Washington State on Aug. 9, about two weeks after he took his unofficial visit to the Palouse in late July.

ANOTHER HIGHLIGHT DURING his trip was seeing the Cougs go toe-to-toe with the No. 2 Ducks.

“The game was great,” Myers said. “They made a few mistakes here and there, but the team hung tough. I was very impressed. The offensive line looked good too. I think they only allowed one sack. The whole offense looked good.

“The stadium was a ton of fun as well. It was all sold out and all the new renovations they put in looked beautiful.”

Myers was hosted by redshirting freshman tight end Nick Begg (pictured above), who did a good job of showing him the student life at WSU.

“He showed me around campus and showed me where some of the players live,” Myers said. “A lot of the players live in the dorms, but some have their own houses. The new dorms were great and so were the homes the others lived at. The scenery is great out there with all the trees and the hills.”

MYERS TOOK THE VISIT with both his parents, who gave WSU glowing reviews.

“My mom came with me on the unofficial, but this was my dad’s first time to Pullman,” Myers said. “He was surprised with everything. He was blown away with the new facilities and the town. When my mom came the first time, she was surprised and liked everything as well.”

The weekend trip reaffirmed his verbal to the Cougs, he added.

“When I committed to Washington State, I knew it was where I wanted to go,” he said. “I’m happy to be a part of the family and I can’t wait to live up here. I’m fully committed to them.

I’m happy about my decision and Go Cougs!”
