The Meier bloodline at K-State could continue

Though K-State still hasn't offered, quarterback Kerry Meier continues to list the Wildcats atop his early list of favorites going into the summer.

K-State is at the top of Kerry Meier's early list right now, but then again, it's still early and the Wildcats have not offered yet.

"Right now they're at the top of the list because it's a good program, always around the top in the country, close to home, and I know a lot about them because of my brothers," said the Pittsburg High (Kan.) quarterback.

Meier, the youngest brother of former K-State tight end Shad and current quarterback Dylan, also likes Kansas, Texas A&M, Florida, and Arkansas.

A dual-threat quarterback, Meier already has good size, even better than that of Dylan, at 6-foot-3 200 pounds, and likes the Wildcat offense because of the freedom that is allowed to the quarterback.

"I think the K-State quarterbacks play their own game, almost separate from the other players," said Meier, who has already qualified and plans to major in some type of engineering program in college. "They're given a lot of freedom to call the game, get the team in the right plays and when you have that down, it starts to get real fun."

With that in mind, his leadership is something Meier wants to work on heading into his senior campaign in the fall.

"I want to be better down the stretch for my team," said Meier, who passed for 1,087 yards, nine touchdowns and five interceptions last season. He also ran 102 times for 607 yards and 13 scores. "It's down the final stretches of games that your team looks to you for that leadership, knowing you still have a chance to win the game. Once you get that, you become a much better quarterback. It's like a whole other mentality, like a fear of failure that takes over, thinking you can win them all."

Meier, who just wrapped up a Nike camp at Iowa, said he plans to go to the end to make his decision and plans to participate in one-day camps at K-State, KU, and A&M this summer, but is still unsure of official visits.
