On May 16, Braxton Myers made his commitment to USC but decided to reopen his recruitment earlier this month. A few weeks later, he committed to Ole Miss, giving the Rebels their 12th commitment of their 2023 class.
Myers is a 6-foot-1, 185-pound safety from Coppell High School in Coppell, Texas. He is ranked as the No. 9 safety, the No. 27 recruit in Texas, and the No. 144 overall recruit in the Class of 2023 according to 247sports. In March, Myers joined me on Instagram Live to discuss his recruitment and more.

The coaching staff at Ole Miss sold Myers to commit to the Rebels. His relationship with cornerbacks coach, Sam Carter, and head coach, Lane Kiffin, set Ole Miss apart from his other options, including USC.
“He’s [Coach Carter] been recruiting me since freshman year,” Myers said. “Being around Coach Kiffin and Coach Carter is real cool. Coach Kiffin is a laid-back, chill guy. I feel like Coach Carter can guide me in college to being a top corner in college and pursuing my dreams of being in the NFL.”
Just as the coaching staff has been recruiting Myers hard since his decommitment from USC, the other commits in Ole Miss’ class have been recruiting him just as hard. The Rebels currently hold the 30th-ranked recruiting class according to 247sports.
“I’ve been talking to a lot of the recruits since I decommitted,” Myers said. “I also connected with them back in July. The conversations have been great, they played a big part also.”
There are not many players that get to play Division-1 college football, and not many recruits get to play at a school that has an atmosphere like Ole Miss. Myers can’t wait to arrive in Oxford to play in front of the passionate fanbase the Rebels have, and he can’t wait to play at the level of college football that he’s worked to be in. “The college town life experience, also coming in January being a part of the team and starting football with a new team.” Myers said.
Until then, Myers has a senior season to finish at Coppell High School, where the Cowboys are currently 4-0. Once his high school career is finished, Myers hopes to continue his winning ways at Ole Miss.
