DB Da'Mon Merkerson is headed to Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff. He won't be taking summer courses, however. Instead he'll be there for Arizona Cardinals training camp, which begins this weekend.
SB Nation Arizona gets down to the gritty details on their new Merkerson.
Cornerback DA'MON MERKERSON (6-1, 184) from Syracuse was a three-year starter for the Orange, including seeing action as a wide receiver as a sophomore and freshman. Last season he started all 12 games played at cornerback and had 23 tackles, two interceptions and 2.5 tackles for loss. For his career, Merkerson appeared in 46 games (31 starts) and had 59 tackles (38 solos), two interceptions, and four tackles for loss in addition to 14 receptions for 196 yards and two touchdowns on offense.
Merk will likely be there by Friday as players are expected to take physicals by then.
Go get'm Merk and, worst case, I'm sure cheerleader tryouts are soon as well.
