MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — West Virginia obtained its seventh commitment for the class of 2014, and its first on the defensive side, when junior college cornerback Jaylon Myers pledged Wednesday.
The 6-foot-2, 195-pound Myers—currently preparing for his sophomore season at Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College—played as a freshman at Georgia Military College in 2011 before being dismissed and sitting out last season.
A native of North Augusta, S.C., Myers previously visited Oklahoma State, Florida and Georgia and also claims an offer from LSU.
“He is a big cornerback who will have three years to play two once he graduates from junior college,” said Rivals senior writer Keenan Cummings of WVSports.com. “He plans to enroll at WVU in December. Ultimately he said his comfort level on campus was the biggest difference-maker between West Virginia and his other options.”
WVU’s previous six commitments include three receivers (Rocky Rogers, Lamar Parker and Jacob McCrary), two offensive linemen (Josh Krok and Amanii Brown) and quarterback William Crest.
