When asked if he had a current favorite, Meyer said, “not really."
"The in-state schools are probably a little bit ahead at this point in time because I’ve talked to them more. Once I get out and make some visits that could change."
Skinny: According to Meyer, former teammate and high school All-American selection Blake Larsen gave him some pointers regarding the recruiting process.
