John Meeks’ brother, Blake, is a freshman wrestler at Nebraska, but Keith said that wasn’t the sole reason John wanted to be a Cornhusker.
“John has wanted to wrestle with Nebraska since he was in sixth grade,” Keith Meeks said. “He’s been to all the camps in Nebraska since sixth, seventh grade. It was a comfortable fit.”
Keith Meeks said Nebraska has offered a full scholarship to John, who through three high school seasons is 123-0 with three state titles. Only five wrestlers have finished their Iowa high school career undefeated.
