So we heard that Monte Merrick, the kicker extraordinaire from my home Bell County got a visit today from UK and there was some thought it might come with an offer. Jody Demling of the Courier Journal however reports tonight that no offer was given and Merrick is disappointed. In his column, Demling quotes Merrick as saying the Wildcats are:
“still dragging their feet. They’re talking about walk-on and grey shirt and how they don’t know if they’re going to have a scholarship this year.”
Merrick wants to be a Cat….at this point, no scholarship is there. The coaches must feel confident in the Lones/Tydlacka combo.
