Chris Meenan, (6'7", 314) offensive lineman from Wooster (Ohio) checks in with Scout.com to give an update on his recruiting. "So far I only have one offer from Toledo." "Bowling Green and Miami (OH) are showing heavy interest as well."
Meenan has camped at Miami (OH), Toledo, Indiana, Purdue, Bowling Green, and will camp at Ohio State (6-24) and Notre Dame (6-25).
The most important factors in his decision will be academics and coaching. "It's real important I find a place that has good academics, that's my main concern."
Meenan has family ties to college football as well, his father played at Kent State, and he has two uncles who played for Ohio State. Family genetics will only get you so far, and Meenan knows he has much to improve on as well. "Mainly my speed and my agility, I just want to be able to move much better."
When discussing his strengths, "my strengths are pulling and trapping, I get out and make the big clocks that will break the play wide open."
During his only year as a varsity player he graded out at 89% and had 51 pancake blocks. "Yeah, I had a good season, but I am trying to have a better one this year." "Everything was new to me last season especially the speed, but I got used to pretty quick."
Currently Meenan is receiving mail from Cincinnati, but an improvement in his speed and some good senior film could change the outlook from UC. "I would be interested I them, they are a good school who is now in the Big East."
Meenan needs a lot of work on his footwork; he would need to play at Guard in college due to his lack of foot speed. His performance at the Scout.com combine in May showed he has flashes of being something special. Plus he has the genes for it as well, but he will need to make same vast improvements in the footwork area to be considered a top offensive lineman in Ohio.
We look forward to checking in with Meenan's progress throughout the season.
