UK extended a scholarship offer to Class of 2015 offensive lineman Jalen Merrick on Wednesday.

Merrick — a 6-foot-5, 300-pound prospect — does not have a star ranking from any of the national recruiting services. He received his first offer from Florida Atlantic last August. Merrick played his first season of varsity of football in 2013, but his size has attracted a lot of early attention.

Georgia and West Virginia have also offered in the past couple of weeks.

Merrick plays for New Smyrna Beach High School in New Smyrna Beach, Fla.
