All it took was a trip to Ames, IA and he was sold. Yes, Iowa State coach Paul Rhoads was able to dip into Texas and haul another athlete in The Woodlands defensive tackle Mitchell Meyers.
“I committed to Iowa State about two hours ago. I went down to Ames this past weekend and really liked it,” Meyers said. “I got to do and see a lot of things. It felt right so I committed.”
Interesting note, while the 6-foot-4, 242-pound Meyers was in the airport on his way to Iowa State, he received an offer from Rice. From there, he had to weigh the pros and cons of both programs which ultimately ended up being the finalist for his services.
“When I came back from Iowa State I knew I had to choose. I just felt like Iowa State had the total package for me,” Meyers said.
Meyers said that Rhoads was excited when he made the call. He also had offers from Air Force, Western Michigan and a host of Southland Conference programs at the time of his commitment. Meyers said the Cyclone coaches plan to use him as a defensive tackle.
