UW To Get Visit From Three-Star LB Prospect

Moreno Valley (Ca.) LB Kevin Meitzenheimer recently updated Dawgman.com about where things stand on the recruiting front and what schools he's planning to visit this summer...

"Coach (Bob) Gregory came out to our practice (last) Thursday," Meitzenheimer told Dawgman.com. "I'm taking the SAT on June 6th, so once I get that done, I will start taking some visits to different schools and Washington is one of the schools I am planning to see, but I haven't set up the date yet.

"It will probably be the weekend of June 20th, that's the one I am looking at, but I just haven't set it up yet."

That date is the same weekend of Washington's Rising Stars camp although Meitzenheimer said he's not sure if he would take part in camp or not.

"I don't know yet," Meitzenheimer noted. "I might (take part in it), but I need to look at things and see how much it costs and whether or not I can fit it into (my schedule)."

In addition to his visit to Seattle, the talented linebacker is planning to take in camps at Boise State and UNLV as well.

"I was already planning on going to those camps, so I will take part in those," Meitzenheimer said. "If I can work out things to take part in Washington's camp, I definitely will look at that, but I wasn't planning on it."

The Huskies extended Meitzenheimer an offer early in the recruiting process and joining them have been five other programs -- UNLV, Boise State, Colorado State, UTEP and Utah State.

"I've also been talking to a lot of other schools, but so far, those are the ones that have offered," Meitzenheimer said. "I'm planning to make my decision in October, so I'll just wait to see who else likes me and what offers I have and then I'll see where I am at, but right now, October is when I plan to commit to a school."

As a junior last season, Meitzenheimer posted 72 tackles, 12 tackles-for-loss, one interception and one force fumble while earning All-League honors on a team that went 8-4 last season.

Dawgman.com will continue to keep track of Meitzenheimer as he continues to work his way through the recruiting process and we will have more on him as time moves along.
