Merchant is among a growing number of Canadians who are opting to play their college ball at UB. He feels that many of his countrymen are "are overlooked solely because of their nationality." He went on to tell Bull Run that he believes that UB has done "a great job of making players aware of their program" and that these players are more than capable of competing in the NCAA.
Coach Shorter owns the recruiting of Canadian players so he had a big part in securing Merchant but Chris also mentioned that Coach Quinn, Coach Patterson, Coach Wood, Coach Pilkey all "played key roles in the process" and were a major reason on why he chose UB. All of these coaches made the stand out feel welcome at UB.
