Despite visiting Iowa quite a bit, Bryce Meeker continued picking things up about the Hawkeyes at Saturday's junior day.

Wisconsin invited Meeker to its junior day on Feb. 1. He has not decided whether or not he will attend.

Meeker said he spent time talking with Waukee's Trevor Allen and Anthony Nelson, Regina Quarterback Drew Cook and Jake Newborg, a 2015 Iowa verbal from Inwood West Lyon, during Iowa's junior day.

"That was good," Meeker said. "It was good meeting them and learning where they are in the recruiting process."
