Originally a Michigan fan, Mercs obviously has a ton of respect for SEC football and knows which team to choose in order to experience success.
Mercs is one of the most popular streamers on the internet with over three million subscribers across two YouTube channels, along with another 4.2 million followers on Twitch. Currently, his most popular videos and streams come from him and other popular gamers playing Call of Duty: Warzone.
Although the Big Ten may in fact resume it’s fall sports soon, Mercs will be a welcomed addition to Alabama’s fanbase.
