CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The West Virginia University football team has a late addition to a secondary unit that has another defensive back sidelined with an undisclosed issue.
Highly touted junior college transfer Jaylon Myers has enrolled at the school, a source told the Charleston Daily Mail. The 6-foot-2, 195-pound Myers signed with WVU in February. He was rated a 4-star cornerback by 247sports.com and 3-star cornerback by Rivals.com. Myers was a junior college All-American who intercepted eight passes last season for Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College.
Myers adds depth to a secondary that could be without senior Ishmael “Icky” Banks. The 6-0, 185-pound cornerback is away from the team while WVU tries to resolve an issue. Banks has played in 36 career games with 16 starts (12 starters in 2013).
The Mountaineers open the season Aug. 30 against Alabama in Atlanta.
