Kerry Meier to stay the course

With his older brother a week away from making his first career start at quarterback for K-State, Kerry Meier looks to just stay the course he's set in his recruiting process. His list of favorites include three Big 12 programs, including the one that would keep the bloodline running through Manhattan and his family wearing purple.

Not a lot has changed for quarterback Kerry Meier since we last spoke with him in May.

Due to the no-contact period recruits and coaches are in now, Meier hasn't been able to move forward with any program.

But despite this period, which ends Sept. 1, this dual-threat quarterback said things have gone smoothly.

"It slowed down a lot over this time, but it's still going fine," he said. "I'm anxious to get back to it and start finding out more about the schools. But for the most part, everything has remained the same."

Meier has pretty much narrowed down his choices down to Kansas State, Kansas, Texas A&M, and Tulsa. Meier, the younger brother of current K-State starting quarterback Dylan, also has an offer from UTEP, but doesn't seem to have very high interest in them.

But for Kerry, who has practically grown up in Manhattan, mostly because of his elder brother Shad, who played tight end for the Wildcats and now plays for the NFL's Tennessee Titans, there might be something a little special something about his relationship with the K-State family.

"I do know more about them than I do about other programs," he said. "There's no doubt about that, just because of my two brothers there. But there are still a lot of things I want to know more about when it comes to K-State. I talk a lot to my brother Dylan about it there and because we play the same position, that's been real helpful."

So what does this 6-foot-3 200 pound signal caller like most about K-State? That's simple, the offensive control quarterbacks have.

"It all goes through them," he said. "They're in complete control when they make reads at the line and take control of defenses. I just like the freedom and the responsibility their quarterbacks have in that system."

Don't expect a lot of changes in Meier's list of favorites anytime soon. He told KStateFans that he intends to wait till the end of the season to make his decision, and until then, "I just want to do anything I can to get our team to the playoffs and have a successful season."
