Richards 2014 power forward Josh Meier is an athletic post that is quick off the floor as a leaper. He is a solid rebounder and finishes around the basket with explosion. He can knock down a face up jumper, but his go to move is a baseline spin on the block.
Meier made it official on Thursday and committed to Chicago State. The senior spoke with us about why they were his choice.
“I just feel like it is the best fit for me to show what I can do on the college level. I also liked the coaches a lot and the direction they are trying to take the program. The move to the WAC was a big part of my decision too.”
He has built a tight relationship with the staff at Chicago State.
“They are the type of coaches I’m comfortable with. A lot of Chicago guys. Coach Dildy and Coach Pryor were both really good players themselves so they have achieved a lot of what I want to achieve as a player.”
How will he fit in their system?
“Perfect fit for me. They play a lot like my high school team.”
Meier ran on the circuit with IBA Select this past spring and summer.
