Meeks holds offers from Virginia Tech, South Carolina, Miami, Maryland, North Carolina State, North Florida, Louisville, Clemson, and Tennessee. He is also hearing from Georgetown and others, specifically noting, “Everybody in the ACC [is] showing interest, but I’m just not sure of them that haven’t offered.”
