Former Auburn wide receiver Nate Craig-Myers signs with Colorado State
Nate Craig-Myers has officially signed with Colorado State football. Before committing to Auburn in 2016, the 6-foot-2, 205-pound wide receiver was one of the most highly touted players in the state of Florida and held offers from programs like Alabama, Ohio State and USC.
In two full seasons with the Tigers, Myers never really received consistent playing time. In 2017, during Myers’ sophomore campaign though, the former 5-star wide receiver had a career-best 16 receptions for 285 yards and three touchdowns.
After catching two passes for 39 yards in a win over Washington on Sept. 1, the speedy wideout announced he was leaving the program and would play elsewhere as a graduate transfer. In his collegiate career, Myers has 22 catches, 394 yards and four receiving touchdowns.
With the arrival of Myers, the Rams have now had multiple Power 5 players transfer into the program under head coach Mike Bobo. In 2017, CSU also landed Tennessee-transfer wide receiver Preston Williams, who went on to finish in the top 5 in ever major receiving category this past fall. Now that Williams has declared for the 2019 NFL Draft, Bobo and Co. will hope that they can receive the same kind of impact from Myers.
According to the 247Sports, Myers originally intended on graduating from Auburn in the spring. But, Bobo told reporters on Wednesday that Craig-Myers is currently enrolled in a junior college. Since he only played in three games this season, Myers will have at least two years of eligibility remaining, beginning one year after the last game he participated in.
