Ohio State recruiting: Josh Myers recaps spring game visit

2017 offensive tackle Josh Myers talks about his spring game experience and his recruitment.

Ohio State hosted quite a few visitors this past weekend for the spring game. The list included many top recruits in the 2017 class, including Miamisburg (OH) offensive tackle Josh Myers, who scored a scholarship offer from the Scarlet and Gray a couple of weeks ago.

The standout offensive lineman had a great time on his second trip to Columbus where he got to take in Ohio State's spring game.

"It was a great trip. My mom and I got there early and my mom hadn't seen all of the facilities yet, so they had a guy take us around and show us the facilities and the history of the program, which was pretty cool," Myers said. "Then we got on a bus and went to the game. We got to go on the field before and everything and that was pretty much my day."

While at the game Myers was able to spend some time with 2017 quarterback commit Danny Clark. The two elite soon to be sophomore recruits also talked for a while when they were on campus a few weeks ago.

"I spent some time with Danny Clark, the quarterback who's committed," he continued. "I talked to him a lot then and we just talked a lot about Ohio State and were getting to know each other. We exchanged numbers and everything."

He has recently picked up offers from Ohio State and Florida. Both offer meant a lot to him.

"It means a lot in general that I've gotten offered to play college football, it's insane I've been blessed enough to get these offers, especially at such a young age," he stated. "All of the offers mean the world to me because every offer I get takes me one step closer to my dream of playing college football."

Myers' father played football for Kentucky and his brother is a current member of the football team. However, that will not influence his decision.

"There's really no pressure for me to go there or anywhere," Myers said. "My family left the decision up to my brother entirely and didn't say him anywhere. That's what they're doing with me."

There are four schools he talks to the most right now and he has visiting all four of the schools.

"I've been hearing the most from Florida, Tennessee, Michigan, and Ohio State," he stated. "I've visited Indiana, Tennessee, twice, Michigan twice, Florida once, and my two Ohio State visits."

It's still extremely early for him and he doesn't claim any leaders right now. He also thinks he'll make a late decision when the 2017 recruiting cycle comes around.

"There are some big name program schools that I like, but at this point in the process I'm just getting around to all of the schools so I can get a feel for the atmosphere, the coaching staff, and the players," Myers said. "I'm not really sure, as of right now I couldn't say where I'm going to go because it's such a big decision. It's probably going to be a later decision and it's going to be whichever school feels right with a family atmosphere and a home type of feel."

Myers will "for sure" visit Ohio State and Michigan this summer and think he'll get out to school more schools too, though isn't sure which ones right now.

I think the Buckeyes are in a very good spot to land Myers right now, but it's still very early in the recruiting process for him and there are a lot of things that could change in between now and National Signing Day 2017.
