Meeks may wait

Even with an unofficial coming up, Kennedy Meeks seems to have a slower pace in his recruitment.

Four-star center Kennedy Meeks has hosted numerous schools for in-home visits. The 6-foot-9 Meeks got to know all of the coaches recruiting him, however at the moment it seems that Meeks is taking a slower path with his recruitment.

North Carolina, North Carolina State, Georgetown, Kentucky, and Indiana all made in-homes with Meeks. Four happened earlier with North Carolina being the last one of that group to make the visit.

"The Carolina in-home was good," said Meeks. "I had Roy Williams in my house talking to me about how I fit in at Carolina and that I can help them win championships."

Since the conclusion of the in-home visits Meeks has kept things relatively low key. No official visits have been taken or set up. In fact the only visit at all is one (today) to North Carolina, and that will be an unofficial.

"I just want the excitement to see how it all is with the alumni," said Meeks of the trip.

Meeks hasn't made a ton of unofficial visits, but still he doesn't think he needs to say any other schools necessarily before making a commitment.

"There aren't really any places I need to see I don't think," said Meeks. "I am sure I will make some visits, but nowhere in specific yet that I need to see."

With the recruitment at a slower place, Meeks thinks it could be a little while before he makes a decision.

"It will probably go into the spring," said Meeks. "That is what I am thinking right now."

When on those visits that he will take, Meeks says there are a few things he will play close attention to.

"I just want to see how the team interacts with the coaches and in each other," said Meeks. "Also I do a lot of classroom stuff to see how that is, and I want to see the general environment of the school."

Even with the college decision still likely to be pending, Meeks has some big goals for himself this high school season.

"We are just trying to go undefeated, win the state championship, and I want to graduate with high honors," said Meeks.

Meeks is currently seen as the No. 30 player in the class of 2013.
