When 3-star D'Eriq King decommitted from the Frogs, eventually committing to his hometown Houston Cougars, TCU fans were worried. After all, King was expected to be a premier athlete in the TCU offense. However, his desire to play quarterback, coupled with the ability to do so at Houston, led to his eventual flip.
Of course, TCU fans were worried for a completely different reason as well. King was high school teammates and good friends with TCU commit Austin Myers. The prevailing thought was that Myers would eventually join his high school teammate by flipping his commitment to the Cougars. Myers officially eliminated all of TCU's fears today, as he signed his National Letter of Intent and is officially a Horned Frog.
Myers, a 4-star offensive tackle, is rated as the No. 28 tackle in the nation, and the No. 49 player in the state of Texas, according to 247Sports.com. He also held offers from Ole Miss, Clemson, Michigan, LSU, Texas, and Oklahoma, among others.
Myers is one of three offensive tackles (four total offensive linemen) taken in TCU's 2016 class, bolstering a unit that sees six senior offensive linemen riding off into the sunset.
Standing at 6'5", 295 Myers has incredible footwork and great hands, and should be a fantastic lineman at the collegiate level.
