Kansas QB leads team to comeback win

Pittsburg, Kan., quarterback Kerry Meier continues to play the waiting game as far as recruiting goes.
“I honestly think Kerry has put the recruiting aside,” Pittsburg coach Merle Clark said. “He is focused on our season right now. We are still alive and Kerry has been a big part of it for us. We won this last one and Kerry was a big part of it.”
Meier’s older brother, Tennessee Titans tight end Shad Meier, was in attendance at the game.
“Shad has not seen Kerry play,” Clark said. “Then he was able to get here for the game since they had a bye-week on their schedule. I think he really enjoyed watching Kerry play and Kerry did good. He brought us back with his arm and his feet.”
Meier led Pittsburg from a 17-0 deficit in the final eight minutes with two passing touchdowns and one rushing score to win their game against St. Thomas Aquinas 20-17.
The 6-foot-2, 203-pound Meier has already visited Texas A&M officially. He will likely take his other visits after his season is over. He is also considering Kansas State, Kansas and Tulsa. He has received late interest from TCU, Wyoming and Nebraska.
“I really think if Kerry was going to make his decision early, he would have done it by now,” Clark said. “I think he wants to wait it out now and take his trips and see what is out there. He wants to make sure he is making the best choice he can.”
