Nathan has long been a Bruin lean, but Notre Dame was also in the hunt for his skills. Nate also received offers from Washington, Oregon State, Colorado, Wassu, and Boise State. In high school, Nathan was a fast and mobile dual threat quarterback and safety. At UCLA he will join the talented DB corps and might also get some time on offense and on returns. Coach Martin was his primary recruiter.
Meaders, ranked 3* by Rivals and Scout, and 4* by 247, flew under the radar for a long time, but in the last few months his stock has risen quickly. You can see his Rivals profile here, his Scout profile here, and his 247 profile here.
As you can see in the video below, Nathan is an amazing runner, with both speed and the ability to change directions. From Son Of A Coach, commenting on Meadors' hudl video:
Meadors is a fluid athlete that has outstanding speed.
But why not see for yourself. Nathan's hudl video:
