The Colorado State Rams landed another 2015 recruiting in Orlando offensive lineman Colby Meeks. Meeks comes from Dr. Phillips and his the Rams court player from that school be join the roster, and current graduate assistant Ricky Santo is a former coach at the Orlando-based high school.

Assuming Meeks signs on national signing day with Colorado State, he will join Deionte Gaines, Ricky Buckner and Dee Hart who recently transferred from Alabama to Colorado State.

The 6-foot-3, 270-pound guard attended a Colorado State camp this past week, and he enjoyed everything about the school that he decided to commit to being a Ram:

"I feel pretty excited. There wasn't really a trigger. I just liked it and everything and so I figured, 'Why wait?" Meeks said. "I like the tradition that they have going there and I like the coaches and players, plus they have a couple of my teammates up there, as well."

The decision to commit early will allow Meeks remove distractions for the upcoming season. He is moving from tackle to guard and Meeks wants to help his high school team return to the Florida 8A state title game. Meeks is a two-sport star as he  is part of the wrestling team and finished second in the 3A state title.

Meeks only other current offers came from Holy Cross and UAB, but he was getting interest from a lot of other FCS and FBS schools. This is the second offensive lineman to be part of the 2015 class, the other is Fort Collins, Colorado, lineman Salofi Gaoa.
