Merrick, a native of New Smyrna Beach, Florida, got to meet with coach Bret Bielema one-on-one and Bielema had a hilarious surprise waiting for him.
Yep, that’s Bielema donning an afro wig similar to the one sported by the 6-foot-5, 295-pound Merrick.
Offensive line coach Sam Pittman wore the wig too.
Based off Merrick’s tweets, he loved the hospitality he received at Arkansas. With signing day more than two months away, we’ll see if the coaching staff’s efforts pay off with Merrick's commitment.
