Josh Myers on signing with Buckeyes: ‘Today means everything to me’

Miamisburg offensive lineman top recruit in Ohio


It was a quick trip home for Josh Myers on Wednesday morning. The former Miamisburg offensive lineman was in town to officially become an Ohio State Buckeye even though he moved into his dormitory in Columbus less than a month ago.

Myers was one of four Vikings to sign national letters of intent to play college football. The top-ranked player in the state, Myers was one of nine Ohio State recruits to enroll in school early and start classes last month.

“Today means everything to me,” Myers said. “I’ve worked so hard to get to this moment and it feels good to have it over with and get on with the next stage in my life.”

That next stage is a bit hectic. The day started with a mandatory weightlifting session on campus at 7 a.m., followed by the trip home for a signing ceremony at the high school at 10:30. After signing some documents and posing for some quick photos, it was back in the car to return to campus for an early-afternoon class.

Myers said getting used to the next level of football has certainly been an adjustment.

“Some people might think I was a big man on campus here, but up there I’m just another dude walking around,” he said. “There’s not a single person that cares and that’s kind of nice.”
