Secondary reserves Myers, Greaves latest Mountaineers to transfer

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — West Virginia’s offseason attrition continued Tuesday with the departures of senior cornerback Jaylon Myers and safety Malik Greaves.

Senior cornerback Jaylon Myers and sophomore safety Malik Greaves have left the West Virginia football program.

Though both were listed as backups throughout spring practice, Myers seemed primed to compete for playing time in 2015, battling fellow senior Terrell Chestnut. A former junior college All-American, the 6-foot, 194-pound Myers was on the WVU roster a mere nine months, arriving just two weeks before the 2014 season opener against Alabama and appearing in 11 games.

Myers still has a redshirt year at his disposal should he transfer to another FBS school.

Greaves, originally a three-star prospect out of Sandalwood High in Jacksonville, Fla., signed with West Virginia over Auburn, Wisconsin, Vanderbilt, North Carolina and Virginia. He redshirted in 2013 and played in only one game last season—the 54-0 blowout of Towson in Week 2. He was working at strong safety behind senior Karl Joseph and junior Jarrod Harper.

Along with sophomore offensive lineman Tyler Tezeno, whose departure was confirmed earlier Tuesday, seven players—all reserves—officially have left the program since January. An eighth, fullback Garrett Hope, is expected to focus on playing catcher for the Mountaineers baseball team.
