Another Meier at K-State?

First there was Shad, now there is Dylan. Will there be a Kerry coming down the road soon? Only time will tell if K-State can continue the bloodline of Meier brothers, but this quarterback could prove to be the best yet.

Kansas State is hoping to keep the bloodlines going with the addition of junior quarterback Kerry Meier. But Meier, the younger brother of current K-State sophomore quarterback Dylan and former Wildcat tight end Shad (now with the Tennessee Titans) hasn't shown any signs of leaning any particular way just yet.

He's getting attention from K-State, Wyoming, Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, and Texas A&M.

Meier has great size, bigger than Dylan was at the same age, at 6-foot-3 200 pounds. Last season he completed 48 percent of his passes for 1,087 yards, nine touchdowns and five interceptions. He also ran 102 times for 607 yards and 13 scores. In Meier's defense, he had over 200 yards in negative yardage due to sacks.

His coach, Merle Clark said Kerry is well-schooled in the game, both passing and running, and enjoys breaking-down film.

"He really is a student of the game," he said of Meier, who runs a 4.60. "He works hard at it, and with three older brothers, he's been around the game and he been worked with a lot. Obviously, at his position, he's displayed good leadership skills."

Meier's leadership was evident last season, being voted team captain as a junior, something Pittsburgh High hasn't had since his Dylan was there.

Clark said Kerry is, "every bit as good as Dylan," but that "Dylan probably had a better supporting cast."

As far as early recruiting is concerned, Clark said, "There is no doubt about it," that K-State likes Meier.

"He likes K-State, that's for sure, but he's also not going to rush into anything either," he said. "He's got some interest from a lot schools and he's going to take his time to think everything through."

Meier is a 3.00 plus student and has already taken the ACT, but is still awaiting the results.
