Meier holding offers from two Big 12 schools

Pittsburg, Kan. quarterback Kerry Meier has not had much happening on the football recruiting trail since his junior year of high school came to a close.
“We finished school and not much has happened since then,” the 6-foot-3, 203-pound Meier said. “I only have the two offers from Texas A&M and Kansas. Nobody else has offered yet.”
Meier just completed a team camp at Pittsburg State and he does have one more camp yet to go.
“I am going to the Texas A&M camp on June 13,” he said. “I want to see the school at Texas A&M and get a chance to meet the coaches. My basketball camp was the same week as the K-State camp was, so I couldn’t make it up there. I would like to try and get to Arkansas at some point and see the school, but probably not for a camp.”
Both in-state schools made it by Pittsburg coach Merle Clark’s office in May, but Meier was only able to visit with Kansas on that visit.
“KU came by and I got to meet Coach (Clint) Bowen. He’s a really nice guy. I missed Coach (Joe Bob) Clements from K-State when he came by. I was working with the Special Olympics here and couldn’t get by to talk to him.”
With Meier’s two older brothers having played at K-State, many might think the pressure from the siblings would be to follow their footsteps.
“Dylan is not putting any pressure on me. He is letting me sit back and do things my way. He isn’t trying to push me or anything.”
Meier would like to have a decision earlier, rather than later.
“I would like to have a decision early if I can, so some teams don’t get full and have to pass me by. I won’t rush it, but it would be good to get it out of the way.”
