Meadows is a multi-purpose threat

Teams are always looking for multi-dimensional playmakers to get the ball to and one of the best in the California JC ranks is Moorpark Conrad Meadows (5-9, 176). He's racked up a lot of yardage as a returner, a runner and a receiver and some four-year schools have started to take notice of his various skills.

"We're having a good season and we've got a big one this weekend against Citrus," Meadows told JCFootball.com. "I'm having a good season individually, but it's more about the team and our success. My stats will come, but winning is more fun."

Meadows has posted 1,132 yards of offense, including 295 yards on punt returns (a 16.5 yard average), 330 yards on kickoff returns and 507 yards receiving on 37 catches with six touchdowns.

He also has a 52-yard punt return for a touchdown.

Last year, as a freshman Meadows posted 39 receptions for 666 yards and seven touchdowns while receiving 1st Team All-Western States Conference honors.

"We run out of the spread a lot," Meadows said. "I usually am split out wide. Sometimes I come inside to play the slot, but I don't do that very much.

"They like to get me in space so I can use my quickness and speed to get around the DBs and linebackers."

Meadows runs the 40 in 4.5 seconds and also has good strength numbers -- a 300 pound bench.

On the recruiting front, Meadows' skills have made some four-year schools stand up and take notice including some Mountain West and WAC schools.

"San Diego State and Portland State have been pretty aggressive in talking to me," Meadows said. "They said they like my skills and have been keeping an eye on me. Both of them called me this week to talk about things.

"Boise State and Colorado State both have asked for film from my coaches so they seem like they may be getting more interested too.

"San Diego State told me they'd like me to visit, but I haven't set up anything official yet. It will probably be after our season before I make it out there."

Since Meadows was a full-qualifier after he graduated from Moorpark High School, he can leave at any time and he plans to be a mid-year (December) transfer with three years to play two.

We'll have more from Meadows in the coming weeks as recruiting picks up after his season ends.
