Cats remain in mix for Ohio OL

Three-star West Chester (Ohio) Lakota West offensive lineman Kyle Meadows says his recruitment is "all over the place" right now, but he still feels strong about where the Wildcats fit in the mix.

Three-star West Chester (Ohio) Lakota West offensive lineman Kyle Meadows says his recruitment is "all over the place" right now, but he still feels strong about where the Wildcats fit in the mix.

"Everything's pretty much the same as it was earlier this summer. No big changes," said Meadows, who has listed Kentucky, Illinois and West Virginia consistently among his top choices while waiting to see how programs like Ohio State and Tennessee will respond to his play early this season.

Other BCS programs who have been involved in his recruitment include: Indiana, Michigan State, Louisville, Marshall, N.C. State, Pittsburgh, Purdue, Toledo and Kansas.

"I'm all over the place with my thinking right now. I've been so busy with practice lately, that I'm not really sure what I'll be doing about visits. I need to sit down and talk to my coach about it."

Meadows (6-6, 275) indicated there is still a good possibility that he will make an official visit to UK this fall.

"I enjoyed it when I was down there this summer (for an unofficial visit)," he said. "I got a chance to sit down with all the coaches and get to know them better, and I really liked the campus and the facilities.

"I feel like I fit in pretty well there. They like my size and speed and my potential to be a really good pass protector."

Meadows and West Lakota open the 2012 season on Saturday against Rival LaSalle. He said he's eager to put some technique drills he worked on this summer to use in an actual game situation.

"I can't wait," Meadows said. "It's a big game for us, and for me. I want to show how much I have improved, especially with my zone technique."
