Myers is a 6-foot-1, 190 pound JUCO transfer from Hutchinson Community College in Kansas. Jaylon is ranked #45 nationally on Rivals.com junior college postseason top 100 of 2014, and chose WVU over offers from LSU, Georgia, Florida, Oklahoma State and Arizona (suck it Rich Rod!). One good thing about JUCO transfers is that they come with lots of quality game highlights, which you can see on Myers' HUDL video.

Myers' size and strength will give him a leg up on younger backs, as he may be better prepared for the larger Big 12 receiver than current underclassmen. With a 4.6 40-yard speed, he has good speed to go with strength and is considered an excellent open field tackler.

Myers is a JUCO transfer who potentially comes with some baggage. He attended Georgia Military Academy after high school because he didn't qualify academically at that time. He then was dismissed from the team at GMA and ultimately transferred to Hutchinson Community College. To his credit he says that JUCO forced him to grow up. Let's hope so or Myers will be another quality athlete to leave Morgantown having not fulfilled his amazing potential.

According to Meyers his choice to come to WVU was easy because he has once considered the Mountaineers his favorite team. Jaylon, we're glad you're back with the Old Gold & Blue!
