Steinbrenner’s Merrell verbally commits to USF

Steinbrenner’s Kevin Merrell, who will be a junior next season, has verbally committed to play baseball at the University of South Florida, Warriors’ coach John Crumbley said.
Merrell hit .298 last season with 12 runs, seven RBI and six stolen bases. However, maybe his most important contribution last season was making the transition from centerfield to shortstop after a season-ending injury to senior Stone Ramsey.
Crumbley said Merrell hit .315 as a freshman and was offered by South Florida after attending a camp with Bulls’ coaches, who were impressed by his speed.
Merrell was also a part of the 2008 Citrus Park Little League team that went 2-1 in the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Penn.
