"I'm a run stopper first and control the gaps," said a confident Meyer. "The Tampa 2 requires a pass rusher, a strong pass rush and I think that when I play the nose guard, I require a double team and that opens single teams for the defensive linemen and that will allow them to get pressure."
Meyer, like many in his recruiting class, is very happy and impressed
with Nevada's coaching staff.
"The coaching staff is phenomenal, they're just very real and sincere
and that's what me and my family liked when we went up there," Meyer
said. "Coach Polian is a great guy and is doing a lot for the
program and is trying to bring us into greatness."
Coach Nick Rolovich is also a big reason why Meyer decided to commit to
the Wolf Pack.
"We came in for an unofficial visit and reported to the parking lot and
coach Rolo was wearing an aloha shirt, surf shorts and slippers," Meyer
said giggling. "Yea I felt very comfortable, we walked in to a coaches
meeting and they were watching film and met all the coaches."
The 285-pound Hawaiian is not content with his body and is looking to
prepare his body for the next level.
"I have been running on the beach, picking up agility, putting up some
weight, working on my overall strength," Meyer said.
Not only does he work hard on the football field but also in the
classroom. He will major in electric engineering and is really excited
to join the University of Nevada's strong program.
Meyer is really excited to start his career at Nevada and had this
message for the Wolf Pack faithful.
"I just want to let them know that coach Polian is a great coach and
they should be prepared for a new era," Meyer said.
