There have been some pretty great father/son duos in the world of sports in the past with Ken Griffey Sr. and Ken Griffey Jr., Archie Manning and his sons, Peyton and Eli, and even Dell and Steph Curry.
It looks like the next one to take over the world of college football is Nate Meyer and his father, Ohio State head coach, Urban Meyer.
Nate is a class of 2018 player at Bishop Watterson in Columbus, Ohio and he can play either wide receiver or defensive back. Earlier this week, he attended the Buckeyes’ recruiting event “Friday Night Lights” and showed off his prowess as a pass catcher, snagging a pass from J.T. Barrett and running an impressive route to catch a pass from four-star 2018 quarterback Emory Jones.

Meyer even took in the action and watched Nate Meyer snag a pass from 2017 Ohio State commit Tate Martell. He could be watching that combination in the next few years.

Meyer still has two more years to make his decision on where he will play his college football. If there is a spot for him on the Buckeyes’ roster, it is hard to imagine him not playing for his dad.
