PLAYER: Jordan Merrell
SCHOOL: Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas
SCOUTING: While he is certainly no stranger to being in the spotlight, this gifted football player saw his role reduced after coming in from Dillard. But it wasn’t his talent level or lack of production, St. Thomas Aquinas is a program that is loaded and has numerous football prospects. However, over the past six weeks, the same ability to make a huge impact that he had at Dillard and at the youth football league level, began to come out and everyone saw what he is capable of doing. Currently committed to attend FAU, grabbing the spotlight has also brought in a number of other colleges who have watched him come up huge in the postseason. Merrell is a very dependable, quick and strong receiver who has the chance to be very special – something that he has been since playing the game for the first time.
