Meyer becomes the first verbal commitment for the Grizzlies 2019 class. He threw for over 1,500 yards and 11 touchdowns as a junior, and also rushed for over 900 yards and 17 touchdowns for the Eagles. The 5’10 Meyer could wind up at a number of positions once he joins the Grizzlies, including defensive back or wide receiver.
Meyer also received praise for his work in the classroom and in the community recently. He was selected as one of 25 finalists nationwide for the U.S. Army-Pro Football Hall of Fame Award for Excellence.
