You are certainly young enough where a change in your diet and exercise routines can have a significant impact on your body size if you are, as you said, "a little meaty". It might be worth it for your overall health as well to just give that a go and see where it takes you. Increase your cardio and weight training and see if you become heavier and more solid, or if you become more lean. Ultimately everyone's body reacts differently to these things. If you do change these things up and you lose a solid 15-20 pounds I think it is VERY reasonable for you to cut to 205.

But, as said above, your speed at HW may be a big advantage. I think the best thing for you to do is get in with a good gym, train and eat right and see where your body takes you before you make any decisions.
