Meadors Planning January Visit

San Gorgonio (Calif.) athlete Nathan Meadors (6-1, 194) had a feeling his recruitment would take off a bit this fall.

But even he was surprised with how quickly things started to fall in place.

“I had early offers from Nevada, Fresno State and UC Davis,” said Meadors. “But obviously my senior year was big. I knew I’d get a couple more offers this year, but I didn’t think it would get this big.”

Cal and UCLA, two schools he grew up watching, offered and then Notre Dame offered in the last two weeks.

“The Cal and UCLA offers were big because those were two of my favorite schools growing up,” said Meadors. “Then Notre Dame offered and it really came out of the blue. I was kind of already talking to them before hand, but then they offered and it shocked me because it is so prestigious.”

Meadors said the offers standing out were UCLA, Cal, Washington, Boise State, Washington State and Notre Dame.

He visited Boise State in November and he’ll visit Washington next weekend.

“In January, I’ll visit UCLA and Notre Dame, I just need to set the dates up,” said Meadors.

Meadors had Notre Dame stop by the school on Monday morning and Washington running backs coach Keith Bhonapha was in his home on Monday night. Nevada will come later this week and Cal is set for Wednesday.

“UCLA and Notre Dame are going to come in home probably next week too,” said Meadors.

Meadors plans to take all five visits before he makes a decision, though he’s uncertain which school will get the fifth visit.

He was at UCLA’s game against USC in November.

“I was at the USC game and it was great and wonderful to watch,” said Meadors. “I talked with Coach (Demetrice) Martin after the game. We have a good relationship. I talk with Coach (Jim) Mora too and we have a real good relationship too.”

Meadors played quarterback for San Gorgonio and also in the secondary, so schools like him as an athlete.

“Some have said specifically safety, some corner, some possibly playing receiver, some are a mixture,” said Meadors. “I’d love to play a little of both at the next level. I love playing with the ball in my hands. It definitely expanded my game and I took it to the next level.”
