Jalen Merrick is a three-star offensive line prospect from New Smyrna Beach (Fla.) high school. Merrick, the 6-foot-4, 310-pound, projects as an offensive guard. He recently responded to some questions of mine regarding his summer plans.
Merrick plans on visiting Florida this Saturday, which happens to be a big camp session for the Gators. He says he's currently open and will talk favorites and trim his school list after the summer. Merrick also told me that he would like to visit at least nine other schools over the next few weeks like Ohio State, FSU, Miami, South Carolina Alabama, Georgia and LSU. All have offered.
Merrick is sitting on close to three dozen scholarship offers at this time. He's the No. 32 ranked offensive guard in this class of 2015.
