Name: Carl Myers
Weight: 286 lbs.
High school: Grand Rapids (MI) West Catholic
Position: Defensive tackle
Class: Fifth year senior
Jersey number: #54
Last year: I ranked Myers #69 and said he would be a backup defensive tackle (LINK). He did not play.
TTB Rating: N/A
A few years ago, I thought Myers might be the fourth Glasgow brother. As a true freshman walk-on, he played in the very first game possible, against Hawaii in the 2016 season opener. Then he didn’t play at all in 2017, played in four games in 2018, and didn’t play at all in 2019. If Myers is alternating years of seeing playing time, then 2020 should once again be his year.
Unfortunately, I just don’t really buy it. Maybe Myers is just another above average walk-on type who just can’t really play at the scholarship guys’ level, and that’s fine. Four years into his career, he’s played in five games. While injuries have been an issue and caused him to miss some time, he’s probably still not a guy who will work heavily into the rotation.
Prediction: Backup defensive tackle
