Josh Myers Adds to the Talent Pool in Ohio

Standing 6-6 and weighing 280 pounds, Josh Myers is already one of Ohio’s best players for the 2017 class.  The offensive tackle has offers from some of the top programs around the country.  The offer sheet includes the likes of Florida, Michigan, Kentucky, and Ohio State.  Myers knows what he is looking for as a right fit.  He told me that he wants a place that provides a family type atmosphere.  Most of the schools he is being recruited by provide that, including Ohio State.  There are many things that Josh loves about Ohio State including the rich history that Ohio State has and the fan support.  He also has a great relationship with Coach Hinton.  Hinton is his main recruiter and Myers talks to him the most.

“Coach Hinton is just so laid back and easy to talk to,” Myers said of Hinton.  “He also is very funny.  I have a very good relationship with him.  I like coach Hinton a lot.”

He recently took a visit to Ohio State in March and loved every part of it.  His favorite part was getting to meet the coaches, including coach Urban Meyer.

“Meeting Urban Meyer was cool!” He said of meeting Meyer.  “I have seen him on TV so many times and then to actually get to know him personally, away from coaching, is just cool.  It was also surprising meeting all of the coaches and realizing that they are normal people too.  Yea they are famous head coaches, but they are normal people like us.”

Myers likes Ohio State a lot but he is wide open in his recruitment.  His goals for this upcoming season are not individual goals, but a team goal of winning the state championship.  He is the only returning starter for an offensive line that graduated four seniors, so he wants to improve his leadership, not only for the line, but the whole team.  The rest of the summer consists of training for football and basketball.  In fact, Myers was running a basketball camp earlier yesterday.  He is visiting Ohio State for Friday Night Lights and is very excited about getting to visit there again and also get to hangout with his friend Danny Clark.

Myers recruitment still has a long way to go, but I like where Ohio State stands right now.  Danny Clark has been recruiting him for a while now and I think that can only help.  He is not going to decide for a while on where he is going, but you can be sure Ohio State is going to be in this until the end.
