Meeker camps with Huskers

Cedar Rapids Prairie offensive lineman Bryce Meeker camped with Nebraska last week and liked his time in Lincoln.

Cedar Rapids Prairie (IA) soon to be junior offensive lineman Bryce Meeker could be one of the top offensive linemen in the Midwest for the 2015 class.

Meeker has started since his freshman year and already has offers from Illinois State and Northern Iowa.

But recently the offensive tackle has seen his interest spike from BCS schools, including Nebraska, where he camped last week under the closeful eye of offensive line coach John Garrison.

"I thought the camp was awesome. The facilities were great, I loved the coaches, it was a great time," said Meeker, who stated the camp will definitely stick out in his mind for a while. "I liked it a lot. There was great competition; they let us go 1-on-1 a lot, both on the pass and run which was great.

"It was nice to see also the coaches match up the best-of-the-best, they weren't just going to let anybody go up against anybody."

A group of select lineman broke off with Garrison at times to get advanced coaching, a group that included Meeker (6-foot-6, 290-pounds).

"They said that they really liked watching me this week and that they were hoping I could come down for a couple games this fall," the 2015 prospect told Big Red Report on Saturday. "They also said that when recruiting legally starts for my class, they are going to contact me as much is allowed."

Meeker also camped with Iowa over the weekend and could be getting close to snagging an offer from the in-state Big Ten school. But even if it happens, don't expect an immediate commitment to the Hawkeyes.

"It's completely even at this point. I'm going to take all my visits and see how the campuses are," said Meeker. "I like Iowa, it's 20 minutes from my house and I grew up cheering for them, but that doesn't give Iowa a lead. I want to see what's best for me."
