Noah Myers officially joined WSU's 2015 signing class on Wednesday when the big offensive lineman sent in his signed letter of intent. Myers is one of the biggest prospects in Washington State's class and is part of a solid offensive line group in this class.
Myers is a consensus 3-star recruit out of Walnut Creek, Calif. At 6-foot-4 and 300 pounds, he will come to Pullman with a big frame and good size. That only appears to be the start and he certainly looks capable of adding more weight. Mike Leach loves big offensive linemen to take up space in the wide splits the Cougars love and Myers looks the part. He didn't take long to make a decision, committing to WSU in early August after taking an unofficial visit in late July. At the time, he had reported offers from Montana and Weber State. Myers appears to have shut his recruitment down after that, with the only reported visit his official to Pullman during the season.
The Cougars have done a tremendous job stockpiling offensive line talent the last few seasons. WSU will also have the benefit of having all five starters return next season. The combination should lead to a redshirt season for Myers who will have a year to get into the weight program and adjust to college football before possibly competing for time in 2016. Myers is likely slotted along the interior offensive line and could see time at either guard spot and even center with how WSU shuffles players.
Brian Anderson's scouting thoughts:
Leach looks for ‘nasty' olineman and Noah fits that bill, it's a safe bet he made some kids wish they didn't sign up for football last year. Outstanding run blocker, drives feet through the block, another kid that finishes the drill every snap. Decent pass blocker, could work on footwork - getting depth on the drop step, but is strong and physical enough to handle anything thrown at him.
