The Ohio State coaches have landed yet another commit from a highly rated recruit today. Five star 2017 offensive tackle Josh Myers has officially committed to the Ohio State Buckeyes. The 2017 recruit is from Miamisburg, Ohio, stands at 6’6″ and weighs 290 pounds. Myers becomes the four commitment of the 2017 class for the Buckeyes. That makes three five-star players and one four star player in the 2017 class, which is absolutely remarkable. According to 24/7 sports, he is the third highest rated player overall, the top ranked offensive tackle overall and the number one player overall in the state of Ohio in the 2017 class.
Myers knew his mind was made up once he saw the Ohio State-Michigan game in-person. Myers said this to 24/7 Sports:
“I think my mind was probably made up for sure after the Ohio State-Michigan game,” Myers said. “That was what did it in for me. That was a great experience. I thought I connected with that coaching staff after the game and I felt in my heart it was the right place for me.
Myers said he felt a deep connection with offensive coordinator Ed Warinner, who recruited him to Columbus along with tight ends/fullback coach Tim Hinton. He really complimented the coaching staff and was impressed by how great of a team the Buckeyes have. Myers also said more than anything it felt great to finally announce it to everybody.
Myers comes from a family that is very talented athletically. His father Brad Myers was an offensive lineman at Kentucky from 1984 to 1987. His mother Julie Myers was a basketball player at the University of Dayton and his older brother Zach is also an offensive lineman who signed with Kentucky in 2012. Myers had a plethora of offers from other schools that included Alabama, Florida, Michigan, Kentucky, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Penn State, Tennessee and West Virginia.
