PSU gets commitment from Bishop Guilfyole run-on Myrick

Keegan Myrick tweeted that he was left “speechless” about getting an opportunity to be a preferred run-on at Penn State, and the product of Bishop Guilfoyle High School in nearby Altoona made it official Saturday by committing to the Nittany Lions.

Myrick played running back and defensive back in high school at BG, one of the state’s most successful small-school programs in recent years. He’s listed at 6-foot, 167 pounds, and though he rushed for 3,895 yards in high school, he probably projects more as a defensive back in college.

Myrick told the Altoona Mirror, “It’s always been a dream of mine to play at Penn State since I was little.”

Myrick drew interest from Lehigh and Dickinson but opted to chase his dreams at Penn State. His high school coach at Bishop Guilfoyle, Justin Wheeler, also was a walk-on at PSU in the 1990s and knows it can be challenging.

“We talked about the difficulties of being a walk-on,” Wheeler told the Altoona Mirror. “It’s a great opportunity. He’s going to have to outwork everyone.”
