Quenton Meeks has been making the rounds to schools in California and prior to his recent trips to UCLA and USC, the San Diego (Calif.) Del Norte defensive back saw Cal and Stanford.
Both Northern California schools are clearly in the running.
First, Meeks saw the Golden Bears and he was definitely impressed by many things at Cal including the town and the coaching staff.
"It was good," Meeks said. "It was really good. The day before I went to visit Cal, I headed up to Berkeley just to see what they had and to meet with the coaches.
"The facilities up there are really nice. The school itself is really good looking. The city of Berkeley is really nice and there is a lot to do there. The academic part of Berkeley is tremendous, too. I like how coach (Greg) Burns coaches and his philosophy."
The next couple days, Meeks spent down at Stanford and it's definitely another major program in the running for his services. The Del Norte standout raved about the campus and working with the staff and Stanford is clearly one of the schools that have his clear attention.
"As far as Stanford goes, I was there Tuesday for their Elite Camp and Wednesday for their junior day," said Meeks, who's originally from Atlanta. "I got a chance to work with all the coaches especially coach (Duane) Akina, the secondary coach there and really how he likes to coach and his philosophy and what he likes to teach.
"I was really impressed what I saw from him especially his attention to detail as far as technique. That's the most important thing as far as a defensive back. I loved the camp and had a lot of individual time with the coaches. I got to compete and I saw a lot of guys I knew from Atlanta.
"Overall it was awesome. We got to tour the campus the next day and everything was like wow. Everything was state-of-the-art and everything about Stanford was gorgeous."
This past week Meeks camped at UCLA and USC. The Bruins have already offered and he had a fantastic performance at receiver and defensive back. USC has not offered yet but the Trojans are still showing a lot of interest.
