Hadon Merchant is a talented offensive tackle from Fairhope HS in Alabama. He's also a South Alabama commit who has heard a lot from Southern Miss over the past few months.
Yesterday, they pulled the trigger on an offer.
"Coach Pecoraro said that Coach Hop and Coach Wright approved of the offer today to me and they all absolutely loved my film," Merchant told GoldenEaglePride.com.
It is an offer he's been eyeing and hoping for a while now.
"It's a really big offer to me, one that I have been waiting for," he said.
"It is key for my recruiting, and is very much one of those teams I am very much considering."
Though he picked up the offer, he maintains he is still committed to South Alabama.
"I'm visiting Southern Miss this weekend," he added.
He also just picked up an offer to Georgia State today.
