Pittsburg, Kan., quarterback Kerry Meier has quite a family history of football players. One older brother, Shad, plays tight end for the Tennessee Titans, another, Dylan, is a quarterback at Kansas State and a third, Adam, just completed his collegiate career at Division II power Pittsburg State. Now, it is Kerry’s turn to go through the recruiting process.
“Everything is going well so far,” the 6-foot-3, 203-pound Meier said. “I get a lot of mail and I’ve talked some coaches. Right now, I’m just trying to line up my summer schedule.”
That schedule is going to include some football camps and a little juggling to fit them all in.
“Right now, I’m going to Texas A&M for a one day camp,” he said. “KU has a one day camp I will go to and the Missouri one day camp, too. I’m trying to find time to fit everything in. K-State has one, too. A lot of them seem to fall on the same days, so I’ll have to figure out how to work it all out.”
Meier continues to get mail from K-State, Texas A&M, Missouri, Nebraska and Kansas, but no offers have come, yet. All of the schools are recruiting him as a quarterback.
“Kerry definitely has the talent to play quarterback at the Division I-A level,” Pittsburg coach Merle Clark said. “I’m sure the offers will come as schools get the chance to see him in action this fall. They all have received film from his junior season here in recent weeks. We’ll see what kind of interest develops from that mailing of film."
Meier doesn’t have a favorite school at this point.
“I’ve only visited KU so far,” he said. “I went to their junior day. It was a real neat campus and a brand new campus. I don’t really have a favorite right now. I’ve been to K-State a lot and my brothers went there.”
