It’s still an everyday acclimation for 2020 defensive back Nehki Meredith, but he’s adjusting.
Now, Meredith (5-11, 170) is trying to find the next school that would be the best fit. There are four offers in currently for his services, from Virginia Tech, Maryland, Florida Atlantic and Chattanooga. He’s taken a few visits already and has more coming, but he’s also not in any hurry to decide.
Meredith’s current school, Bishop Sullivan in Virginia Beach, has taken some getting used to, even seven months later, but he’s gotten the hang of it more and more.
“It’s a whole [different] environment from public school,” Meredith said. “It’s just completely different. Every class is every day, not quarters. You don’t have ‘A’ days and ‘B’ days. On Tuesdays, we have math and that’s like a church service. The staff, it’s a little more strict and there’s a dress code.”
This past weekend, Meredith made what he said was his eighth visit to Virginia Tech. He watched spring practice and hung out with a few of the coaches and players there.
“I’ve been so many times, I’ve already gotten a feel for it,” Meredith said. “(Assistant coach Zohn Burden) said we’re going to go from there when I get there. I didn’t get to talk much. We were just talking in the lounge after the scrimmage. The techniques they were doing at DB, I pretty much already know.”
Burden has been Meredith’s primary recruiter, and the two have continued to develop a strong bond.
“It’s a real good personal relationship,” Meredith said. “We can talk about anything. [Coach Galen Scott] came in the lounge after the scrimmage and we talked about the snow. It wasn’t really about my recruitment. It had just started to snow. We were just there getting another experience.”
