Phillip Merling of Calhoun County (S.C.) is an outstanding prospect at whichever position he may play in college. Tight end or defensive end it really doesn't matter to Merling. He injured his wrist and could not participate in spring drills.
"A lot of colleges came by the school this spring. I couldn't practice because of a slight injury. I sprained my wrist. It's better though," said Merling.
Merling is naming his top four: Georgia, South Carolina, Clemson, and Kentucky. The common denominators that he seems to like about all four are:
"I like where they are located (geographically) and I like their weight lifting programs. I like the academics at their schools too," he said.
What should a program expect from Merling if he were to sign with them?
"My attitude stands out the most about me. I work really hard on my drills. I do everything at game speed. I just want to work real hard to win a championship."
Merling plans to attend summer football camps at Georgia on July 12th, South Carolina on June 21st, and he wasn't sure of when the Clemson camp was.
