The recruitment of Whiteland (Ind.) Community offensive tackle Jake Meador is coming into clearer focus with a little more than a week left until National Signing Day. The 6-7, 305-pound prospect has a final three and knows when he will announce his decision.
"I will decide on Signing Day," Meador informed Rivals.com on Tuesday.
Meador also named the finalists for his signature and they are Florida, Missouri and Wisconsin. That means Indiana, the in-state program and recipient of an official visit from the three-star prospect earlier this month, will not be a part of the Meador's final decision.
Wisconsin is a fairly recent addition to Meador's list after the Badgers offered him a scholarship this month. Meador has an official visit planned to Madison for this coming weekend, Jan. 27. It will be the last official visit of his recruitment.
The latest flurry of action has come as the result of several late offers arriving in Meador's mailbox and the coaching change at Ole Miss. Meador had originally committed to Ole Miss and then head coach Houston Nutt last summer, but decommitted from the Rebels earlier this month.
Florida's offer came in shortly before the New Year and Meador made an official visit to Gainesville on Jan. 15.
"It was my first time down there and I got to see the coaches face to face," Meador told InsidetheGators.com's Mark Wheeler last week. "I think the highlight was seeing the Swamp."
Missouri hosted Meador for an official visit back in November, and has been a staple on his list since he re-opened his recruitment in the wake of Nutt's dismissal.
Meador is ranked as the No. 43 offensive tackle in the country and the No. 4 prospect in the state of Indiana.
