Isiah Myers is a recognizable name in the WSU receiving corps having started a total of 14 games for the Cougs during his career. Here are some things that you should know about Myers heading into to his senior season:
Name - Isiah Myers
Position - Wide Receiver
Year - Senior
Height/Weight - 6'0", 185 pounds
Hometown - Orlando, FL
1. Sunshine State recruit - Myers is a graduate of Olympic high school in Orlando, FL where he was listed as a 2-star recruit by Rivals. He was recruited by several big schools, but his only listed offer was from WSU.
2. A year of waiting in the wings - Myers arrived at WSU in the spring of 2011. His role in his freshman season was mostly playing on special teams and backing up Jared Karstetter.
3. Preparing to step up as a sophomore - Myers spent the offseason between his freshman and sophomore years preparing himself to become a legitimate threat in the WSU receiving corps. Part of the preparation involved training with a safety from Orlando named Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. Clinton-Dix was a standout safety for the University of Alabama and was drafted by the Green Bay Packers as the 21st overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. Myers started in five games for the Cougs in 2012 and pulled in 425 receiving yards.
4. A big catch in Tucson - Myers caught 37 balls for 425 yards and three touchdowns for WSU in 2013. The biggest catch was a 25-yard game-winning touchdown pass that gave the WSU an upset victory over Arizona. The win snapped a three-game losing skid and enabled the Cougs to become bowl eligible a week later after defeating Utah.
5. Myers in 2014 - Myers is one of many experienced receivers in the Cougs' stable. He is likely to spend the 2014 season rotating in with Gabe Marks at the Z receiver position. Myers was listed as the No. 2 Z receiver heading ito the spring. Consistent with the numbers he has put up in the past in this role, I would expect Myers to pull in around 500 yards receiving in the coming year for WSU.
One Myers' biggest catches came in his sophomore year when he pulled down a Jeff Tuel touchdown pass to help WSU eek out a 24-20 win against Eastern Washington. The catch shows Myers' ability to get vertical despite only being six feet tall.
