Lars Tiffany and the the two-time defending champion Virginia Cavaliers have added to an already strong 2022 recruiting class, snagging one of the top in-state offensive weapons in the class.
St. Anne’s Belfield (Va.) midfield Tim Myers flipped his commitment from Navy to Virginia on Monday night. This news comes after Myers visited with Virginia head coach Lars Tiffany last week.
Myers announced his decision on Instagram.
Rated as a three-star by Inside Lacrosse, the Charlottesville native joins a class that is headlined by a trio of Inside Lacrosse five-stars in Manhasset (N.Y.) midfielder Joey Terenzi, Calvert Hall (Md.) attackman Truitt Sutherland, and Georgetown Prep (D.C.) faceoff man Mac Eldridge.
“I’ve grown up in Charlottesville my whole life, and fell in love with the sport watching at Klöckner,” Myers told Lacrosse Bucket.
Myers broke onto the high school scene as a freshman at Albemarle High School where he set the school’s freshman scoring record with 68 points (42G/26A) and earned Region 5D first-team honors while helping to lead the Patriots to the state quarterfinals. The lefty transferred to St. Anne’s Belfield for his sophomore season and due to the 2020 season getting cancelled, completed his first season with the Saints this past spring as a junior.
The lefty started his high school career at attack and has since transitioned to midfield. In addition to his offensive prowess, Myers has an uncanny ability to make plays on the defensive end and in the riding game. He led the Saints in scoring and earned first-team All-Prep honors and VISAA second-team All-State honors this past season.
Myers and his Saint Anne’s Belfield team fell in the first round of the VISAA state tournament, 12-9, against Blue Ridge School.
“I had a good high school season with much to improve on. The team struggled, however it was a good learning experience for everyone involved,” Myers said about his junior season.
Myers said that the Tiffany and the Virginia staff plan on having him come in a be a two-way midfielder, which is a position and skillset that seemingly flourished in the shot clock era and the Cavaliers’ have leaned on heavily during their back-to-back national title runs.
