Chris Meenan, an offensive lineman, from Wooster, Ohio, had two uncles that played football for Ohio State and an older brother that attended Purdue. The 6-foot-7, 315-pounder, opened a lot of eyes in Akron at the Scout.com All-American Combine. Meenan told us which school offered him a scholarship and where he’ll be camping this summer.

Toledo is my only scholarship offer at this point,” Chris Meenan said.

“My favorites are Purdue, Ohio State, Notre Dame, Toledo, Illinois, Boston College and Miami (Ohio).

“I’ve already camped at Miami and I plan on camping at Bowling Green, Toledo, Indiana, Purdue, Boston College, Ohio State and Notre Dame.

“I want to get out there and prove myself against the competition. Purdue would be high on my list right now. My brother went to school at Purdue. I like the coaches, the program and the offense. Purdue is showing a strong interest right now.”

Meenan will be a two-year varsity starter in 2005. He did play varsity football as a sophomore but split time with a senior at tackle. Chris graded out at 89% in his blocking assignments as a junior and he also had 51 pancake blocks.

As we mentioned before, Meenan had two uncles who played for the Buckeyes on the offensive line and his father played his college football at Kent State. Chris does have the family football genes but he still has much to work on.

“I need to work on my speed,” Meenan explained. “I need to work on improving my 40-yard time and my shuttle time.

“I think my strengths are my pulling and trapping ability. I can also get out on the running backs and make big blocks.”

Meenan also letters in track & field. He carries a 2.8 GPA in the classroom.
