Jayvaughn Myers was the second member of his family to deliver good news to Auburn’s coaching staff on national signing day.

The 3-star defensive back out of Pasco High School in Florida picked Auburn over the University of North Carolina Wednesday afternoon.

His half-brother Nate Craig-Myers, a Tampa Catholic wide receiver, made the same decision earlier in the day. Craig-Myers announcement was televised on ESPNU.

Jayvaughn Myers was at one time verbally committed to Florida. The 6-foot-1, 185-pound defensive back reopened his recruiting process in November.

Rivals and 247 Sports both rate Myers as a 3-star prospect while Scout gave him 4-stars. All three recruiting websites put him in the top 40 defensive backs in the country.

He joins fellow 2016 signees Central’s John Broussard, Grady's Marlon Character and Lee-Montgomery High’s Daniel Thomas in Auburn’s secondary.
