Tennessee has multiple talented receivers, however, Merrill brings a highly competitive edge to the room. If someone slacks, he is going to catch them. He works all three levels of the field efficiently. While, he doesn't project to start right away, his skill set setups for him to get early targets in Josh Heupel's offense.
What He is looking forward to the most about getting to Tennessee
"I am just looking forward to being great."
