Nehki Meredith’s selection should be no surprise

The selection of Nehki Meredith should be no surprise, certainly not to anyone who has followed the Bishop Sullivan Catholic, now Catholic High School, football program. His combination of speed, agility and athleticism puts him well above the pack when it comes to college prospects.
Heading into the regular season, we recognize the top 30 senior prospects in and around the 757. We’re now inside the top ten of our countdown, and the number four athlete is Catholic wide receiver and defensive back Nehki Meredith.

There was no shortage of college interest for Nehki Meredith. He came into the summer with offers from well over a dozen schools, including Virginia Tech, LSU, Rutgers, Louisville, Maryland, Pitt, Penn State, Chattanooga, Texas A&M, Tennessee, TCU, Temple, UNC, Nebraska and Liberty. He decided that NC State suited him best and verbally committed to the Wolfpack on June 15.
As important as he’s been to the success of the football program at Catholic, he is even more important this year. Catholic is returning to the TCIS and there are fewer star players on the Crusaders that there’s been in the past few years. That hasn’t slowed the team down. It has just created more opportunities for the players who are there.
Meredith is the fourth Catholic senior to be named to the recruit757 Fab 30 list for 2019.
Catholic has started the season with a 2-1 record, including a notable win over Woodberry Forest over the weekend. Coach Tommy Austin has the Crusaders clicking, and Nehki Meredith is certainly a key ingredient in the recipe for success.
