One of the top offensive line prospects in Ohio’s 2013 class is Lakota West product Kyle Meadows. The 6-foot-5, 270-pound prospect has the frame and athleticism that college programs covet and the big tackle is hearing from a variety of schools around the nation. Unfortunately, Meadows had his junior season cut short to just three games after a leg injury ended his season.

“Someone fell on my leg in practice and I broke my fibula,” said Meadows. “I only played in the first three games. I had surgery and I’m pretty much recovered. I get my cast off next week and I should be ready for basketball season.”

The injury certainly hasn’t stopped the flow of mail that Meadows has received on a weekly basis.

“I’m getting a lot of mail right now from Duke, Nebraska, and Michigan State,” Meadows said.
Ohio State is another program showing heavy interest in Meadows, who took in the game against Michigan State a few weeks ago.

“It was OK, but I couldn’t really do much because I was still on crutches,” he said. “I thought the game was pretty good. The atmosphere was electric, everybody was going crazy.”

Meadows was able to speak with Ohio State head coach Luke Fickell while he was on campus.

“I talked to coach (Luke) Fickell but I didn’t get to see my recruiting coach, coach (John) Peterson,” Meadows explained. “He just saw that I was injured and asked me what happened. He said to get ready for next season and just keep working hard.”

Meadows has always listed Ohio State among his favorite schools, but another Big Ten school is starting to creep up his list and joins Ohio State at the top for the moment.

“Ohio State and Michigan State (are at the top),” he said. “I’ve been getting a lot of (attention) from Michigan State and Ohio State. I like the coaching staff (at Ohio State), they make you feel like family. Michigan State, I haven’t really met with them yet so I’m looking forward to seeing how they are (in person).”

Meadows added that he plans to visit Michigan State on November 5th when the Spartans host Minnesota.
