The Washington State Cougars are back on track in the recruiting world, picking up a big (literally) commitment Saturday from 300 lbs offensive lineman Noah Myers.
The 3-star guard prospect from Los Lomas high in Walnut Creek, CA brings some tenacity and size to the Cougar offensive front this class, generally dominating his matchup in high school ball and showing pretty quick feet for a guy his size. At 6’5, 300, he is also another difference maker in the size dept. for the Cougars.
Since Mike Leach arrived the Cougs really have gone after kids who have at least this type of size and it’s making a difference when it comes to competing at a high level on the line in Pac-12 play. Myers is another step in the right direction, coming in as a top 100 offensive guard.
He is open to playing either tackle or guard, depending on where the Coug coaches decide he’ll fit best. Should he play guard as he believes the Cougs will make him, he’ll be the second guard of the class, with Cedric Bigge-Duran (6’6, 295) being the other. Overall he’s the 12th commit to WSU in the 2015 recruiting class.
Myers had offers from Weber State and Montana in addition to Washington State at this point.
