Myrick: 'CMU is where I want to go'

As one of the top prospects in the state of Michigan for the 2011 class, West Ottawa point guard Jordann Myrick opted to commit to Central Michigan last summer and put his recruitment to rest early in the process. Since that point, the talented Myrick has been a staple at CMU athletic events and recently took in the Chippewas victory over Northern Illinois on Saturday.

"It was a good game, I'm glad Central was able to pull it off in the end," said Myrick.

Through ten games this season, Myrick's West Ottawa team is just 4-6 overall, but they have had their fair share of close losses with three of those being by five points or less. From a personal standpoint, Myrick has proven to be one of the top underclassmen in the state and is averaging double figures for his squad as the point man.

"Our season is going alright," said Myrick. "We're 4-6 and we're struggling right now, but we'll pick it up. Right now we just want to hit .500 and we really want to win districts, which we've never done before, so that would be huge for us."

Myrick plays his AAU ball for a Grand Rapids Storm team that has been very kind to the Central Michigan basketball program. The Storm feature not only Myrick (2011), but 2010 commits Colin Voss and Nate VanArendonk. When asked if his AAU squad was turning into a CMU pipeline, Myrick responded with an instant smile.

"Oh yeah," laughed Myrick. "We try and get everyone to go to Central on our team."

Despite the fact that signing day is still a long way off for the 2011 commit, Myrick insists there is one and only college he will consider regardless of the other offers he receives and says there is no situation that would sway his commitment.

"No, this is where I want to go and I want to stay there as long as I can."
