Meadors Recaps Cal Visit

Dec. 15 -- San Bernardino (Calif.) San Gorgonio athlete Nathan Meadors took his second official visit of the year this past weekend to Cal and the Bears made a big impression on him...

Nathan Meadors is a talented two-way player who is being recruited primarily in the secondary. He played quarterback and safety but could also play some corner.

On the recruiting front, Meadors visited Boise State back in November and was at California this past weekend.

"The trip was everything I expected it to be and more," Meadors said. "The location was good, not too far and not too close. The weather was just right, not too hot and not too cold. The academics are off the charts, Cal is one of the top Universities in the world. You graduate from Cal and you're pretty much set for life.

"I really bonded well with the players and coaches and just felt really comfortable there all weekend. I'm not going to lie, I was actually tempted to commit but I knew I couldn't make an emotional decision. It would be much smarter to come home and think things over and I know I want to take the rest of my trips before I do anything else."

Meadors said how Cal plans to use him is another big selling point.

"They said they only return one starter in the secondary," Meadors said. "Since they're looking at me as a corner and safety, there's a good chance I'll be able to compete for playing time right away. They said they want me returning punts and kicks too and also have some offensive packages for me. That's why I'm saying it's such a good overall fit.

"I'm going to be doing a lot of thinking over the dead period but I'm committed to take a few more visits. I'm going to Washington (Jan. 16) and UCLA (Jan. 30). I was actually supposed to visit Washington this week but we had to push it back. The weekend of January 23, I could visit Notre Dame or Oregon. Oregon hasn't offered yet but they have been coming strong so we'll see what happens there."
