Class of 2017 Miamisburg, Ohio offensive tackle Josh Myers has close to 20 offers, and he wants to see many of those schools this fall. He'll start this weekend with a battle of Midwest schools.
"The only game visit I have scheduled right now is the Notre Dame-Michigan game this weekend," Myers said. "I am just really excited to see the game atmosphere because you can visit in the spring and that's more seeing the campus and facilities."
Myers previously visit Notre Dame in June, and received an offer from the Fighting Irish after working out at their camp. He goes into his first game at Notre Dame Stadium already impressed with the program.
"They left a good impression," Myers said. "I definitely like their campus a lot. I really liked their coaching staff too. Coach (Harry) Heistand, I got to camp with him one of the days I was down there and I loved the way he coaches and how nice of a guy he is."
The 6-foot-5, 280-pound Myers is in the early stages of a recruitment that has taken off since his first offers came through last January. He has already made several college visits, and plans to see more schools this fall.
"Just from the spring I have gotten to know a lot of schools better," Myers said. "I visited Notre Dame, Michigan State and Alabama. Getting to meet those coaches, I got to know them a lot better. I visited OSU, which helped me get to know them better. I also spent time with Michigan, Tennessee and I saw Florida too.
"I am definitely going to be scheduling more games once it gets closer to those game times. I am going to try to go to the OSU-Michigan game. I'm going to go to a Michigan home game probably. I'm going to the Florida-Kentucky game and I'll probably go to a Kentucky (home) game as well. I want to see Michigan State too."
Myers' own season kicked off last weekend with a 38-10 Miamisburg win. The sophomore is playing offensive guard, but most college teams recruiting him for tackle. He was listed as one of Rivals.com's 10 prospects to watch in the 2017 class last week.
