NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter believes Utah State senior CB Jalen Davis will "be a starting nickelback in the NFL."

"I loved Davis' game coming into the year, and now he's tied for the FBS lead with 5 interceptions, returning 3 to the house, in 6 games," Reuter wrote last week, prior to Utah State's game against Wyoming. "The four-year starter is a tough player and a ballhawk." Over the summer, Davis was named Athlon Sports Second-Team All-Mountain West and Phil Steele Third-Team All-Mountain West.

Utah State senior QB Kent Myers completed 17-of-29 passes for 152 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 27-14 loss to Colorado State.

Twas an offensive slog for the Aggies, who finished with just 212 total yards of offense. Myers hit on a 22-yard touchdown pass to LaJuan Hunt with 1:55 remaining in the game, but the game was too far gone for any real chance of a comeback at that point. On the plus side, kind of, Myers evened up his TD/INT ratio at 7/7 for the season with his scoring toss.
Oct 7 - 9:22 PM

Utah State senior QB Kent Myers completed 16-of-27 passes for 176 yards with two scores and a pick and also ran for a score in a 40-24 victory over BYU.

Myers (6'0/220) hasn't had much success in 2017, but he did play reasonably well tonight against the Cougars. He had a 32-yard strike for a score to open the scoring, but he also had a pick-six go the other way a few minutes later to make it 7-7. His 36-yard scoring pass with just over a minute left tied the game up at 21-21, and his 19-yard scamper into the end zone gave the Aggies a two-score lead at 33-21. Myers will hope to keep the Utah State win streak alive next week when they host Colorado State.

Utah State senior QB Kent Myers (undisclosed) is questionable for Saturday's contest against San Jose State.

Myers (6'0/200) has really struggled over the first three games, and was pulled for ineffectiveness against Wake Forest last Saturday. If he's unable to play, the start will likely go to Damion Hobbs.

Utah State senior QB Kent Myers went 9-for-23 for 54 yards and an interception in a 46-10 loss to Wake Forest on Saturday.

Myers (6'0/200) ended up getting pulled for ineffectiveness and replaced by quarterback Jordan Love, who was not much better. Myers was inaccurate, struggled with decision making, and was unable to make plays with his speed (five carries for just seven yards). Utah State could consider going to Love full-time, as Myers has really struggled in two of their three games.

Utah State junior WR Ron'Quavion Tarver caught seven passes for 75 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 51-13 win over Idaho State.

A nice little bounce-back game for Tarver (6'3/215) after he was held to 2-8-0 in the 59-10 loss to Wisconsin in the opener. Tarver logged a respectable 46-602-3 receiving line last season in his first with the Aggies after transferring over from the JUCO ranks.

Utah State senior QB Kent Myers went 24-for-26 for 323 yards with two touchdowns and an interception, and also ran for 85 yards and a touchdown in a 51-13 victory over Idaho State on Thursday.

Myers (6'0/200) struggled mightily against Wisconsin on Saturday, and while this was significantly weaker competition, it's still a very impressive showing for the senior QB. His first touchdown pass was a three-yard find to Ron'quavion Tarver to make it 17-0 near the end of the first quarter. He then scampered for a 23-yard touchdown to give the Aggies a 24-6 lead in the middle of the second quarter, followed by a 36-yard dash through the Idaho State defense a few minutes later to put USU ahead 38-6. Early in the third, he connected with Jordan Nathan for a 19-yard touchdown, making it 45-6 and ending Myers day. Myers can make an impact with both his arm and his leg, and he'll get another chance to do it in week three against Wake Forest.
Sep 7 - 11:17 PM

Utah State senior QB Kent Myers completed 25-of-41 passes for 219 yards and three interceptions on Friday in a 59-10 loss to Wisconsin.

Even when Utah State had a 10-0 lead, it had nothing to do with Myers. The 6-foot, 200-pound quarterback had very little success getting the ball down the field, and in a game they probably weren't going to win anyway, his three interceptions gave them little chance to keep up with the Badgers offense. He'll look to turn things around in much friendlier confines against much easier competition next week when the Aggies host Idaho State.
Sep 2 - 12:57 AM

Utah State junior WR Ron'Quavion Tarver caught six passes for 65 yards in the team's scrimmage on Wednesday.

Tarver (6'3/215) logged a respectable 46-602-3 receiving line last season, his first with the Aggies after spending a year in the JUCO ranks coming out of high school. Utah State is installing an up-tempo attack under OC David Yost for the coming season and if QB Kent Myers takes to that system, Tarver could be in for a big statistical boost this year.
Aug 12 - 1:16 PM

Utah State head football coach Matt Wells said figuring out a running back rotation is one of his team's biggest summer priories.

"Where's that running back rotation going to be?" he said. "Between LaJuan Hunt, Tonny Lindsey, Jr., Justen Hervey, they've all had their time, they've all played on Saturdays and played well. And then we're going to add a young junior college player, Eltoro Allen, to that mix. So, where does that come?" Hunt, a senior, had a resurgent spring and is going to give Lindsey a run for his money for the starting job. After rushing for 540 yards as a freshman and 338 yards with five touchdown in 2015, Hunt disappeared last year. He appeared in 10 games, making one start, finishing with 140 rushing yards on 42 carries (3.3 ypc) and one touchdown, while adding six receptions for 51 yards and four kickoff returns for 69 yards.
Jul 14 - 1:38 PM

Utah State redshirt senior RB Tonny Lindsey finished behind LaJuan Hunt in first-team touches over the spring.

Lindsey led the team in both rushing yards (763) and tied for the team lead with six rushing touchdowns last year. In all likelihood, he and Hunt will be in the timeshare this fall. Justen Hervey will also steal touches.

Former TCU junior DE Tipa Galea’i transferred to Utah State.

Galea’i must sit out the 2017 season. He'll have two years of eligibility remaining beginning in 2018. The 6-foot-5, 235-pounder had 5.5 TFL and 3.5 sacks last year in rotational duty. Scout.com reported that "big time Pac-12 schools" were chasing Galea’i upon news of his transfer. He probably chose USU because his older brother, Salanoa Galea’i, played for the Aggies.

Utah State redshirt senior QB Damion Hobbs has transitioned to tight end this spring.

With Kent Myers entrenched as the Aggies' starting quarterback, OC David Yost and HC Matt Wells decided to get creative. Said Yost of the 6-foot-2, 220-pound Hobbs, "He’s one of the more athletic guys on this football team, so we thought he might be able to help us on the field. He has probably exceeded our expectations for what a quarterback has done at the tight end position, and there is still a lot to be learned and worked on."
May 12 - 5:26 PM

Utah State senior QB Kent Myers completed 10-of-12 passes in the team's spring game.

Myers was sharp, particularly on a 10-play touchdown drive in which he completed all six of his pass attempts for 69 yards. The Aggies are installing an up-tempo system under OC David Yost, who was hired in February after spending the 2016 season as Oregon's passing game coordinator. "Really, it's simple offense," said Myers, who threw for 2,394 yards with a 10/8 TD/INT ratio last season. "You've just go to go out there and really invest, and really take everything in practice and translate it into the game. When we do that we can score a lot of points."
May 12 - 4:41 PM

Utah State issued indefinite suspensions to redshirt freshman LB Troy Murray, redshirt freshman LB Kevin Meitzenheimer and redshirt freshman DB Jay Brown.

All three players are facing charges relating to two December burglaries, with Murray and Brown allegedly swiping electronics equipment which was traced to Salt Lake City after it was pawned. Meitzenheimer's role in the story is considerably more out of left field, as he and former Utah State commit Dayshawn Littleton allegedly made explicit threats in order to attempt to prevent charges from being filed against Murray and Brown -- including supposedly trying to hit a witness with a car and also threatening to come back to shoot a witness. None of Murray, Meitzenheimer nor Brown played in a game last season.
