Myers Set For WVU

West Virginia basketball commitment Teyvon Myers singed his letter of intent this afternoon, and called it "the best feeling I ever had."

A strongly-built 6-3 shooting guard, Teyvon Myers committed to West Virginia in mid-March, and stayed true to that choice when he signed a letter of intent today. That decision held despite offers from Louisville and Arizona State, among others. He'll join a class that includes, for now, James Bolden and Esa Ahmad, and figures to grow by at least one, given the recent departure of BillyDee Williams.

Myers has planned his spring and summer out. He's set to graduate from Williston State on May 17, and is scheduled to arrive at West Virginia on June 8.

"I'll be working on getting bigger and quicker, and also to be a great defender," he said via text message to BlueGoldNews.com.

That echoed his statements immediately following his commitment, in which he also singled out physical improvements as well as a commitment to defense. The offensive part of his game appears to be well in hand, as he averaged 25 points per game while shooting 45% from the field and 36.7% from 3-point range this year at Williston. He was also reliable in end-game situations, as he canned 85% of his free throw attempts.
