Nehki Meredith is trying to get a feel for his options not only on the field, but in his recruitment as well.

Meredith, a Class of 2020 athlete from Bishop Sullivan in Virginia Beach,  plays both sides of the ball and is open to either at the college level. Colleges are also waiting to see if he takes to one side more than the other. So far, Virginia Tech and Florida Atlantic are the lone schools to pull the trigger and offer a scholarship.

Even though the Hokies are the only Power 5 school to jump on board so far, Meredith has already gotten a look at a few schools on visits already. Those trips have helped to shape what he’s looking for as his recruitment continues to kick into gear.

“First, I want to see what type of relationship I have with players and coaches,” Meredith said. “I want to feel like I’m at home. I see how they treat me and if I fit there, instead of going with the wave, where everyone else is going. I want to make sure I fit in.”

The Hokies offered Meredith on March 15, and he visited a few weeks later for a spring practice with a few Bishop Sullivan teammates, including close friend Keontae Jenkins. Meredith was invited to Virginia Tech’s Blacksburg Bash
