Meadors Set For UCLA Visit

Jan. 28 -- The San Bernardino (Calif.) San Gorgonio safety, Nathan Meadors, will take his official visit to UCLA this weekend...

San Gorgonio (Calif.) athlete Nathan Meadors (6-1, 194) is down to two schools, with two more just outside.

Meadors had an in-home with one of them and will take an official visit to the other this weekend.

Notre Dame, where he visited the first weekend after the dead period, had head coach Brian Kelly and linebackers coach Bob Elliott in his home on Tuesday night.

“It went pretty great,” said Meadors. “We had a great conversation and I had a good time with them.”

The other finalist, UCLA, will host Meadors this weekend.

“I’ve been on field trips for school to UCLA, just to tour the campus with my school, but this is the first time I’ve ever gone there as a recruit so I’m really looking forward to it,” said Meadors.

Boise State will be in his home on Wednesday, but Meadors said the Broncos are on the outside looking in right now.

“It’s really down to UCLA and Notre Dame, those two with Cal and Boise State dangling in the background,” said Meadors.

UCLA was in for an in-home last week with head coach Jim Mora and defensive backs coach Demetrice Martin in.

“It was a good time with them,” said Meadors. “Coach Mora was great, he’s a funny guy and we just had a good time. They’re not coming in this week, because I’m just going to visit them this weekend.”

Meadors said that Notre Dame wants him as a safety while UCLA is saying defensive back, with either safety or corner the likely destination.

Following his visit, Meadors will take a couple of days to finalize his decision before he announces where he’s headed.

“I’m doing my announcement on television on FOX Sports West on Signing Day,” said Meadors.

When the season started, Meadors had a couple of FCS offers and Mountain West offers.

Since then, he’s got a final two of Notre Dame and UCLA and also was offered by Oregon.

“I still can’t wrap my head around this whole process,” said Meadors. “Its been a really good stress to have though. I had a feeling it would be big after my senior year got going, but not this big. But it’s a great feeling and one I can give the recruits under me the opportunity to get a great feel for the process at my school.”
