MS DL Likes Gators

[MEDIA:32874]<BR><B>Sean Merrill</B> is one of the nation's top defensive line prospects and he is in shock that teams like Florida are after him.

One of the top prospects from the Magnolia State is Sean Merrill from D'Iberville, Mississippi. Merrill, now 6-4 and 290 pounds, recorded 85 tackles and 14 sacks as a junior. 

"I have put on 15 pounds or so and I am still just as fast and quick," said Merrill. "Right now, I am pretty open between Ole Miss, Tennessee, LSU, Florida, Arkansas, South Carolina and Mississippi State. My main schools are Ole Miss, Tennessee, LSU and Florida. I am looking at them hard. I never would have imagined this... that these schools would be wanting me to play football for them. I really feel blessed." 

Merrill's goal this season is 20+ sacks. He camped at Ole Miss this past summer. 

"It was my first time there and it was real nice. Oxford reminds me of home. I like the staff and they need defensive linemen. But I guess everyone needs defensive linemen this year. That is what all the coaches are telling me."
