Pittsburg, Kan., quarterback Kerry Meier is slowly becoming a quarterback schools are expressing interest in. So far, during the May evaluation period, several schools have been by Merle Clark’s office with hopes of learning more about the third Division I-A prospect in the family.
“Things have been going pretty vigorous on the recruiting trail for Kerry,” Clark said. “We have had a lot of schools come by here and see him. It has been a busy month so far.”
To date the schools coming to Pittsburg have included Texas A&M, Kansas, Kansas State, Nebraska, Florida, Wyoming, Arkansas, Oklahoma State, Tulsa and several others. The visits with college coaches has produced two scholarship offers for the 6-foot-3, 203-pound Meier.
“Yes, Kerry does have two scholarship offers,” Clark said. “But, the family has decided to keep that quiet. He doesn’t want to tell college coaches who has offered and he doesn’t’ want it in the media. I will respect his wishes on that until he tells me otherwise.”
The process could take a while for Meier to make his collegiate choice.
“I don’t think he’ll make an early decision,” the coach said. “That is up to Kerry and his family. They’ve been through the recruiting process before with his brothers all being recruited. He won’t be in any big hurry. He’ll think things over and make the right choice for him.”
Meier will attend several camps this summer according to Clark, but the specific ones have not been set. He did attend the Kansas State spring game and was able to watch his brother, Dylan, perform in his battle for the Wildcats’ starting position.
“Kerry said he had a good time at the K-State spring game a couple weeks ago. It wasn’t anything new for him. He’s been to Manhattan enough that he knows what is there, but he had a good time.”
