Pittsburg, Kan., quarterback Kerry Meier continues to lead his high school team while dealing with the attention college recruiters are giving him.
“Kerry is holding up pretty good,” Pittsburg coach Merle Clark said. “He’s still getting some attention from other schools, so he hasn’t really finalized a list or anything and he still hasn’t made a decision.”
Several schools continue to inquire about the 6-foot-2, 203-pound dual-threat quarterback.
“I’ve got film ready to send out for Army, Colorado State, Wyoming and Kansas. Kansas State, Texas A&M and Tulsa are all still there on his list too. I don’t think he has cut anyone off, but I’d say maybe K-State, A&M, Kansas and Tulsa are probably on that top edge of the list.”
Meier has been busy traveling this fall after playing on Friday nights.
“He went to watch K-State play earlier this year in person,” Clark said. “Then last week he went down to watch Texas A&M versus Clemson. I think he wants to go watch some more in person. Of course he watches every K-State game every because his brother, Dylan, is playing quarterback there. All of that said, I don’t think there is necessarily a favorite at this point.”
Meier plans on taking his time in making a decision.
“Kerry wants to make an intelligent decision. He wants to weigh his options. He is delaying some because he wants to make his official visits before choosing. He’s talking to his entire family. He’s very modest and very humble, really he’s a quiet person. He doesn’t talk a lot about this stuff. Right now, he does not have any official visits scheduled.”
Meier has helped lead Pittsburg to a 3-1 record on the season.
“We’re not playing as good as we can,” Clark said of his team. “Kerry isn’t playing as well as he can. Really nobody on our team is playing as well as they can. Kerry has a little over 300 yards rushing and a little over 300 yards passing in four games. Not glowing stats obviously, but the main stat is winning. The teams we are playing are pretty intelligent and they try to take Kerry out of the equation. That has opened things up for others to step up and make some plays, and they have.”
