Brewster’s Meeks Headed to Nevada

Brewster Academy big man Zane Meeks committed to Nevada on Monday after visiting the Mountain West school over the weekend and landing an offer shortly aftewards. 

He becomes the 6th member of Brewster's 2019 class to accept a full athletic scholarship at the division I level. 

Meeks announced his decision via his twitter account. 

A skilled 6-foot-9 big man who specializes in stretching the floor, Meeks was a big part of Brewster's run to their latest National Prep Championship as the Bobcats won 4 games in a 36 hour window. 

"Brewster was one of the best decisions I've made," Meeks told Nevada Sports Net. "My level of play increased dramatically over my year at Brewster. Playing against five ESPN top-50 and seven signed high-major guys day in and day out gave me an incredible amount of experience."

The Kansas native is a true senior who had considered returning for a post-graduate year to pursue higher levels of recruitment. 

Nevada though, which has been to the NCAA tournament in each of the last three years, offered an immediate opportunity to play at a high level under new head coach Steve Alford, who takes over after previously leading the program at UCLA. 

"I love Coach (Steve) Alford and the staff," Meeks stold NSN. "They are proven winners. I feel I can play right away, the facilities are absolutely awesome and Reno is a beautiful city."
