Myers Looking For More

West Virginia is set to host a familiar face this weekend when Pottstown (Pa.) offensive lineman Steven Myers makes a return trip to visit the Mountaineer campus.

With several top prospects scheduled to visit West Virginia this weekend, it's easy to lose sight of players who can still make an impact within a program. One of those prospects, Steven Myers, is currently flying under the radar, but is hoping to change that perception this weekend.

Myers, 6-foot-4, 285 pound, bruising lineman, finds himself in a wait and see situation. With several schools keeping a close eye on his recruitment, Myers is visiting West Virginia with high hopes.

"I'm a preferred walk on right now with West Virginia, because I got in so late in recruiting," Myers said. "I've been interacting with several WVU recruits, though. I'm looking forward to the trip."

The Mountaineer program holds a special place in the Myers family. His sister, Ashley, is a senior at West Virginia, where the colors blue and gold run deep within the family.

"With my sister going there I've definitely spent numerous times visiting, so I've been there maybe 8-10 times the last two years," Myers said about his previous trip to campus. "It's a place I definitely feel at home at, which definitely helps."

Despite his familiarity around the West Virginia campus, this trip still comes with a significant purpose. Of all his trips to campus, he's never dedicated time to see every individual aspect of college life.

"With all the times I've been down there I've never had a day that I took an actually school visit," he said. "I set up a tour and plan to meet (West Virginia recruiting coordinator) Ryan Dorchester before the tour and get a look around. I want to get into the locker room around and see certain things."

Even though West Virginia would seem to be the logical landing spot for Myers, the Mountaineers still have competition for his services. With a handful of schools contemplating late offers, Myers is taking a wait and see approach.

"A couple of schools are looking to offer, though it's been hard to talk recruiting over the past few weeks with the dead period," Myers said. "I know UConn is getting back to me and I'm not sure anymore with Penn State with their coaching change. I still plan to visit Slippery Rock, which is a really good Division II school. I'm also waiting to hear from others now the dead period is over."

Myers is hoping to make a decision close to signing day, on February 5th.
