Won't Follow his Brothers

After watching brothers Shad and Dylan attend Kansas State and play football for Bill Snyder, Kerry Meier indicated Saturday that he wants to go another direction and carve his own niche.

“It just came down to the fact that I think my greatest opportunity is not in Manhattan,” said Meier.  “I need to go away from Kansas State and make my own name.”

Having ruled out the “Little Apple”, the 6-2, 200 signal caller could look to make his mark in Lawrence, KS, College Station, TX or Tulsa, OK.

“Right now it’s down to Texas A&M, KU, and Tulsa is still in there as well.  Those three schools are really even right now.  I just want to take it all in before I make this decision and when I do it’ll be a really exciting time.”

Meier has offers from all three schools and has already taken an official visit to Texas A&M – as he took in and Aggie win over Clemson back in September.  His next visit date is set for next weekend when he’ll visit the University of Kansas.

“I’m going to visit KU next weekend,” stated Meier.  “I’m just trying to go up there and find out as much as I can about program and the school.  On these visits you need to be sure to ask all your questions and don’t leave any questions left unanswered.”

So, what questions will Meier be asking?

“I don’t have a lot of questions right now.  I’ve got a pretty good grip on what the program is trying to do.  I’m mainly curious about the academics.  I know it’s a good place to go to school – a tough school, but a good school.  I just want to go up there and have a good time, meet everybody and see what it’s like.  I want to see the town and meet the people around the University to get a feel for what it’s like.”

The three-star QB doesn’t have any other visits set up after his date with Kansas next weekend and appears content to pick between the Jayhawks, Aggies and the Golden Hurricane, shortly thereafter.
