A raw prospect, Meant has been playing football for only three years and will come to UK with plenty of upside.
The Florida native was not ranked by most of the major recruiting services for a majority of his senior season, but he did have scholarship offers from Kansas State, Washington State, Central Florida and Iowa State, among others.
He entered the post-season ESPN.com rankings as a three-star recruit and the No. 76 overall defensive end in the country.
“He has great size. He is a lean 265 pounds. I think that when he gets into a college program, with their strength and conditioning and training tables, I think they are going to be able to mold him the way that they want to.”
- High school coach Brian Conn (to ESPN)
