SPARTANBURG, S.C. — Alex Meredith was one of the most productive quarterbacks in the state of South Carolina last season.
As a freshman at TL Hanna High School (Anderson, S.C.), Meredith completed 232 of 336 passes for 3,369 yards and 37 touchdowns.
Even though he’s just one year into his high school career, the 6-foot, 180-pound prospect has already gotten the attention of several schools at the next level, including South Carolina, Tennessee and Clemson.
At Thursday’s USA Football 7-on-7 camp, Meredith told SEC Country about his work with South Carolina offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Kurt Roper at the Will Muschamp Football Camp last week.
“It was awesome. They showed a lot of interest in me. It seemed like they love me,” Meredith said. “Coach Roper is a great coach. He really knows what he’s talking about and it was just, overall, a great experience. I really like Coach Muschamp, too.”
There are a number of things that stand out about the Gamecocks head coach.
“He’s very passionate about the game,” Meredith said. “You can tell he evaluates players. I like that they focused in a lot on me. They made sure, when I messed up things, I did things right, and I corrected things. They also told me when I did well on stuff.”
The coaches aren’t the only things that he likes about South Carolina.
“First of all, that stadium is awesome. I love the stadium,” Meredith said. “The indoor facility is great, the practice fields, it’s just a football community. It’s what I want to go play at.”
Tennessee and Clemson have also hosted him for camp. Later this summer, he’ll camp at both Troy and Elon.
