Huge OT Meador Starting To Rise

A road grater from Indiana holds an FBS offer and is expecting his recruitment to blow up now that the 2011 class has been signed, sealed and delivered. GoBlueWolverine caught up with him for the latest.

Like most 2012 prospects, Jake Meador, an 6'7" 290 pound offensive tackle from Whiteland (IN), have flown relatively under the radar on most recruiting lists and services. Meador helped his Whiteland Community High School to a very solid 2010 season.

"Someone that always plays with intensity and finishes blocks and can play any position on the field," Meador told GoBlueWolverine. "We finished the season 9-3 and in Indiana everyone makes the playoffs. We won our conference and we came one game short of winning the sectional title. Personally, I felt I did well. I won coaches poll all state and AP all state and conference honors."

Even though Meador only holds one FBS offer at the time, the University of Kentucky, he and other coaches expect his recruitment to explode as the senior class have finished their signing period.

"That's still my only offer," Meador said regarding Kentucky. "A lot of coaches and my coach tell me that offers will rack in after signing is done with the senior class now."

One school that has shown some early interest, albeit not as strong, are the Michigan Wolverines. Meador admittedly doesn't know too much about the Maize and Blue.

"Not that I know of too much, I get letters here and there, but I haven't gotten to talk to the coaches that much."

Should the Wolverines intensify their recruitment of Meador, they will certainly hold a spot in his eyes.

"Most definitely," Meador said of Michigan. "I consider every option, but honestly I don't know a whole lot about them."

Due to the single offer and the interest that is starting to trickle in, Meador remains wide open in his recruitment.

"I don't have favorites because I like to keep all my options open. But I do have a visit to Wisconsin on February 26th, so I'm just working out all of the junior days out with my basketball schedule."

That will bode well for any school interested in signing the massive offensive lineman, as a decision is a long way off.

"I'm probably going to try and wait it out."
