Sandy Spring (Md.) Sherwood athlete Jamal Merritt took his first official visit this past weekend. The 6-foot-0, 175-pounder headed to Ohio to check out the Bobcats.
"It was a nice visit, I liked it," he said. "Pretty much they just showed me around the campus and the facilities. I got to meet some of the players.
"My player host was Gerald Moore. It was nice, he showed me a good time."
