"It went real good," Myers said. "I have a teammate that plays here at Washington (host Darrion Jones). I wanted to see how it was up here and he recommended it to me. I came up on the trip and I also wanted to meet Coach Willingham. I found out he's a very good person and cares about his people."
Former Lynwood QB Ashlee Palmer was also up there on a visit, so the three Knights made it a high school reunion of sorts. Could the three be playing together again - this time in Seattle?
"I didn't commit," said Myers, but he did say he felt really good about the visit, one he took with his father.
What were the highlights? "The whole city and meeting Coach Willingham," said Myers. "We sat down and the conversation was really good. I learned some things about him, how he really is and how he cares about people."
And seeing Jones again was an added benefit. "He just told me how it is," Myers said of the talks he had with the current frosh linebacker. "He really broke it down, told me how it really actually is, how the coaches are, how the team is. He showed me a great time."
The Huskies are recruiting Myers as an athlete. He could play either way, something he's comfortable with.
We'll see if Leilyon Myers still takes other official visits, but it sure sounds as if his time in Seattle was well-spent.
