This Sunday will mark another important junior day for the Ohio State football program with a handful of Ohio's top prospects expected to attend. One of the top junior offensive linemen in the Buckeye State is expected in West Chester (Ohio) Lakota West offensive tackle Kyle Meadows. The 6-foot-5, 270-pound prospect will get his first chance to speak with Ohio State head Urban Meyer.

"I'm going to Ohio State on Sunday," explained Meadows. "I'm looking forward to talking to coach Meyer since I didn't get to talk to him at my basketball game. I just want to see what he has to say and hopefully meet the new offensive line coach."

The junior day visit will also give Meadows a chance to re-unite with his main recruiter from Ohio State.

"I've talked to coach (Tim) Hinton, that's about the only coach that I've talked to (from Ohio State)," he said. "He just gave me the information about the junior day and gave me his new contact information."

Despite an injury-shortened junior season, Meadows has started to see some offers come his way recently as the big, athletic tackle now holds three verbal offers in total.

"I've got (offers from) Louisville, Youngstown State, and Indiana," he said.

On Louisville - "I'm glad I got the offer. I talked to coach (Charlie) Strong and they invited me to go down there to a junior day this month."

On Indiana - "They want me to go to a spring practice in March. They've been recruiting me pretty highly and we talked a lot on the junior day that I went to. It was a lot of fun, I got to take in a basketball game, me and my mom stuck around for that and they took us around the football facilities."

For Meadows, it is still the same two schools at the top of his list and he talked about what has kept the two programs ahead of the rest of the pack.

"I still have Alabama and Ohio State as my top two," Meadows said. "I've been wanting to go to (Ohio State) for a while so if they offered and gave me the chance to go there then we'll see what happens. (On Alabama) when I went to camp, they talked to me a lot and showed me a lot of stuff. They told me that I was a hard working kid and to keep in contact."

Meadows is the No. 2 rated offensive tackle in the BuckeyeGrove.com class of 2013 Ohio rankings.
