"It's awesome to know someone believes in me," Meiser said.
The 6-3 275 DT visited the Ball State campus on Sunday as part of a stellar group of junior day visitors and came away not only with an offer, but with a great impression of the school.
"I didn't know a lot about them (before the visit)," Meiser said. "Recently they had been sending me some recruiting letters that got my attention. When Coach (Patrick) Dougherty asked me to come over I wasn't sure what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised by the campus and the facilities when I got there. They are first class in all aspects and the coaches had great energy about there future. I could tell that there was some great tradition. I really liked that Coach (Keith) Mckenzie played there and is now back coaching."
During the visit, Meiser was able to see plenty of what Ball State had to offer and also got a chance to talk to several of the coaches.
"It was a great time seeing the campus and walking around all the facilities and getting to explore the (David) Letterman Center," Meiser said. "I really liked talking to all the coaches like Coach Dougherty, Coach (Tim) dauost and Coach Mckenzie. They seemed like great guys."
Depsite having only one offer at the moment, Meiser is getting lots of attention from several programs.
"I've been talking to a lot of schools," Meiser said. I've been to Miami, Toledo and Western Kentucky. I plan on going to Eastern Michigan March 12th and I am going to try to make it to Old Dominion, Ohio and Northern Illinois in the spring along with going back to Ball State for a spring practice."
Meiser is a rugged and stout interior lineman that brings his hard hat and lunch pail on every single play.
" I pride myself in my fundamentals," Meiser said. "I don't make all the highlight plays, but i always do my job. I think that people who know a lot about the game of football can see that in me."
