Stock Rising Fast for Meadors

Nov. 14 -- With the regular season now behind us, unheralded players with good senior film will begin to emerge. San Bernardino (Calif.) San Gorgonio athlete Nathan Meadors is one such player and his stock is definitely rising fast...

We saw Nathan Meadors playing for Rhare Breed over the spring during the 7v7 circuit and he was an intriguing player. He has good size, about 6-1, 180 pounds and athleticism and was able to move between corner and safety.

He has put up big numbers this season as a dual threat quarterback and defensive back and after watching his senior film earlier today, he's definitely a high level recruit. Offensively, Meadors has thrown for 1,283 yards and 16 touchdowns while rushing for 1,491 yards and 21 more scores.

After an 86 tackle, six interception junior season that saw him earn league Def. MVP, Meadors has focused more on offense but still has 30 tackles and one pick that he took back 75 yards for a touchdown. He's a dynamic athlete that projects best as a receiver or corner at the next level and schools have definitely taken notice.

"Right now, I have offers from Boise State, Nevada, UC Davis and Washington," Meadors said. "I'm also hearing from UCLA, Arizona State, Utah, Colorado and USC. I'm taking an official visit this weekend to Boise State and I'm really looking forward to that since this will be my first visit of the year.

"I've talked about visiting Nevada in December and Washington has talked about a January visit as well. UCLA sounds like they could be next to offer and I've been talking to Coach Meat (Martin) since the spring. I went to two UCLA games this season and I have a lot of interest in them so hopefully that happens for me."

An offer from the Bruins could be a game changer in Meadors' recruitment.

"It would be tough to turn down a UCLA offer," Meadors said. "I would seriously think about jumping on it but I do want to keep my options open a little and see what else is out there. I'm really excited about this Boise State trip so I'll have something to compare to the other schools I'm looking at.

"I've only been to UCLA and went to USC for a 7v7 tournament over the summer. Right now, it seems like most of the schools are recruiting me for defensive back and Boise State likes me as athlete and said I could potentially play on both sides of the ball. I'm probably most comfortable at receiver but I'll play anywhere, it really doesn't matter to me. I'm just looking for the best all around fit, athletically and academically."
