18 years after Meeks began his college career in Tallahassee, his son will now begin his own path at the collegiate level – this time as a defensive back (nicknamed “Speedy” by friends and family) suited up in purple-and-gold.
“This is an amazing day,” Banks-Meeks said. “Speedy had been leaning towards LSU. He wanted to commit (this spring), but at that point we hadn’t done any official visits. I told him to be patient and make sure this is what you want. He said ‘Mom, I know this is where I need to be. God spoke to me and told me I need to be there.’
