The Recruiting Guy:
UNDER THE RADAR: White Hall’s Landen Meredith
White Hall DL-OL Landen Meredith.
On Wednesdays we feature an in-state prospect who could be flying under the radar of college coaches. This week's UTR prospect is White Hall’s Landen Meredith.
Position: Offensive Line/Defensive Line
Size: 6-3, 285 pounds
40-Yard Dash: 5.0 seconds
Weight room: 340-pound bench press, 290 power clean, 470 squat, 265 incline
Coach Ryan Mallett on Meredith:
“I think he’s the best left tackle in the state and held just getting better. He was a freshman All-American. He can play both sides of the ball. I try to keep him on offense to protect the quarterbacks blindside, but I think in college he could play either guard or play defensive tackle or 3 technique on the next level.”
Mallett on Meredith visiting Arkansas last Saturday:
“They want him to come back this spring for spring practice.”
