Myers opts for West Virginia

Jacksonville (Fla.) First Coast wide receiver Kenneth Myers has made his decision.
The three-star Sunshine State product chose the West Virginia Mountaineers over the likes of Illinois, Louisville, Ole Miss, and South Florida.
"It feels great," Myers said of his commitment. "Now I can focus on my senior season, and academics without worrying about recruiting."
Myers gave the Mountaineer staff the news following the impressive win over UNLV this weekend.
"I told them and they had a smile come to their face," Myers said of the coaches reaction to his commitment. "They were excited. I felt comfortable with it and I felt like that was really what I wanted to do so I made the decision right after the game. I told them I wanted to be a Mountaineer."
Myers made the trip north with his family over the weekend so that the entire family would have an opportunity to see the campus and what would be his home for the next several years.
"My parents were actually up there with me," he explained. "They were excited about it and so were my friends and family.
"That was their first time up there. They enjoyed the fans and the coaches a lot."
The 6-foot-2, 185-pound receiver has had his eyes on the Morgantown program for quite some time. Now a verbal pledge to West Virginia, Myers is relieved and considers himself a solid commitment.
"I have been watching them all season," Myers said of West Virginia. "I feel like relieved and I have been waiting on West Virginia to make a decision and now it is made."
"Yeah, it is over," he said. "I doubt I will take any more visits."
