Merritt attended Bellarmine Preparatory School and played college soccer at the University of North Carolina from 2001 to 2004. Merritt was a two-time second-team All-ACC selection at defender for Carolina and was a member of the Tar Heels’ 2001 NCAA Championship team. He scored 10 goals and had 11 assists for 31 points over his collegiate career.
Merritt was drafted in the fourth round (48th overall) 2005 MLS SuperDraft by DC United. Merritt made only one appearance with United's regular squad but was a strong contributor to the reserve team's inaugural MLS Reserve Division championship in 2005.
Merritt spent the next two years playing abroad in Germany with FSV Oggersheim. At FSV Oggersheim, Merritt helped the club win promotion to the Regionalliga Süd in 2007. In his two years with the club, he compiled 40 appearances while tallying 1 goal and 6 assists.
After suffering a knee injury while playing in Germany, Merritt returned to the United States in 2008. While recovering, he played with the amateur Seattle Wolves in the South Puget Sound League, and having trialed with the San Jose Earthquakes during pre-season, Merritt signed with Miami FC in 2009. He went on to play 24 games and score one goal for Miami before choosing to retire from professional soccer and pursue other career opportunities at the end of the season.
