Manvel (Texas) 2016 three-star offensive tackle Austin Myers was sidelined for the 2013 season with an injury, but the 6-foot-5, 290-pound lineman has had no problem drawing attention from college coaches.
During the summer months, Myers attended a few college camps, and earned his first offer. He camped at Clemson, Louisville, Kentucky, and two Texas camps including the Longhorns' Under the Light camp. It was after his trip to Clemson he learned the Tigers were extending an offer.
"It came when we were on our way back to Houston," Myers said. "It was a shock. It was overwhelming. I even dropped a couple of tears."
After attending two Texas camps, the Longhorns continue to show significant interest.The experiences in Austin left a strong impression.
"It was a good experience," Myers said. "The coaches are great. They gave me some new techniques and they work well."
The most interest though is coming from another Big 12 program.
"The most attention, I would say Baylor," Myers said. "The offensive line coach really likes me and my offensive line coach went to Baylor and he's always talking to my offensive line coach about me and he wants to get me down there."
Myers, who grew up a fan of LSU and Texas, is not ready to name a leader when it comes to the recruiting process, and he is currently focused on the 2014 season.
He is now 100-percent after tearing his left meniscus and he is ready to hit the field.
"I'm ready. I've been waiting for this moment," Myers said. "We play Westfield on Thursday of next week. I'm ready. I've been waiting for it."
Myers is currently ranked No. 51 in the Rivals.com Texas Initial Top 75 for 2016.
