Iowa State recruiting: Bryce Meeker commits to the Cyclones


After receiving an offer from Iowa State over the weekend, offensive lineman Bryce Meeker didn’t waste any time in committing to the Cyclones.

Randy Peterson of the Des Moines Register reports Monday that Meeker was committing to Iowa State after spending a weekend at camp with the team. Everything gelled with the Cyclones since they were looking at him two years ago.

"Meeker participated in Iowa State’s annual football camp last weekend. That’s when he got the offer.“There was no use prolonging the (recruiting) process when I already knew where I was going,” Meeker said."

On Saturday, Meeker named Iowa State a favorite shortly after receiving the offer. A couple days later, it was official.

Formerly looked at as the top athlete in Iowa, 247Sports currently has a composite rating of third in the state is a 3-star recruit.

Despite there being some reported interest with Iowa and Nebraska, neither school gave him an official offer. Meeker has had multiple unofficial visits with the Cyclones, Hawkeyes, and Cornhuskers. As of now, it looks like those latter two’s window of opportunity has closed.

Meeker passed up on offers from Illinois State, Northern Illinois, Northern Iowa, South Dakota State, and Western Illinois.

The Cedar Rapids native is being looked at as an offensive tackle and offensive guard. You can check out his Hudl highlight page here.
