Pasco CB Jayvaughn Myers commits to Florida

Pasco cornerback Jayvaughn Myers has orally committed to Florida, Myers announced Tuesday via Twitter.

The 6-foot-1, 185-pound senior chose the Gators over Florida State, Michigan and Auburn, among others.

Myers was No. 10 on the Tampa Bay TimesHomeTeam 100 list of the area’s top high school football players. He led the Pirates with five passes defended last season and added 31 tackles.

Myers is a three-star recruit and 247Sports’ No. 42 prospect in the state. His half-brother, Nate Craig-Myers, is another UF target. Rivals ranks Craig-Myers, a Tampa Catholic receiver, as a five-star recruit and the nation’s No. 5 overall player. Myers and Craig-Myers have said that they would like to play in college together. 

With Myers’ announcement, the Gators have landed two of Tampa Bay’s top players. Tampa Bay Tech receiver Daquon Green committed to UF last month.

Myers is also the latest in a string of players headed from Dade City to Gainesville. Defensive linemen Joey and Andrew Ivie and walk-on quarterback Jacob Guy all played for Pasco. 

Oral commitments are non-binding until recruits sign letters of intent during their senior season.
