    Interesting comment about his brother Blake in article that I didn't know

    Blake recently transferred from Nebraska to Iowa State, where he will join John on the wrestling team next season.

    Re: John Meeks

    Watching Meeks oun SoundOFF last night, he seems like a very down-to-earth guy who knows the value of hard work and good ethics. Anybody who goes undefeated through their entire high school career is deserving of praise. I hope he has a long and successful future with the Wrestling team.

    Great kid.

    I almost feel bad that he is going to have all the pressure of being undefeated for another 4 years...

    Re: John Meeks

    Did ISU give Meeks a full ride or not? Never got an answer to that.

    Re: John Meeks

    We will never know. That information is not released unless you get it from John's family or KJ. I don't think that is going to happen. Many speculate that is the only way John was ever going to come to Iowa State was on a full ride, I don't believe that.

    There are many other sources of financial aid. Scholarships, which I assume John got a couple; and government financial aid, which I don't know what the Meeks financial situation is.

    College is expensive, so I'm sure Meeks were after all they could get. I'm glad he's at Iowa State!

    No, I don't care one way or the other, but as you know in wrestling very few are given out. Thanks for the update.

    Re: John Meeks

    This kid is good. But I hope that he does not get thrown into the fire next year. I would rather see him red shirt. I would rather give up another year as a team and see all of the incoming recruits take a year to develop into Division I collegiate wrestlers.
