Meeker Pleased with Performance

Iowa kicked off its prospect camp season during the weekend. One of the recruits they've been evaluating for quite some time, Bryce Meeker, attended the event. The Cedar Rapids Prairie standout spoke with HI about his performance and what he heard from the coaches.

Bryce Meeker showed up at Iowa's camp Sunday looking to prove himself. He left campus feeling like he did.

"(The Hawkeye coaches) told me I did a good job and that I will be getting a call in a couple days. They said they'd give me more feedback on how I did then," Meeker said.

Iowa has been recruiting the 6-foot-6, 290-pound Meeker for a few years. Assistants Reese Morgan and Brian Ferentz have met with him at Cedar Rapids Prairie High and he's attended multiple Hawkeye junior days and games. He's said that a Hawkeye scholarship offer was one he covets.

Northern Illinois, Northern Iowa and Illinois State already have extended scholarship offers to Meeker. He's scheduled to camp at NIU and Iowa State.

The Hawkeyes have expressed to Meeker throughout the recruiting process that they're interested in him. They've continued evaluating him but he said he's not sure what they want to see, specifically, to find him worth of an offer.

Meeker said he's worked hard in the offseason on agility and improving his technique.

"I felt like my footwork was good (at Sunday's Iowa camp)," Meeker said. "I have been working a lot on footwork and I think I showed that."

Meeker said he played guard at the camp. He's lined up inside and at tackle for the Prairie Hawks.
