Class of 2018 wing Tyler Herro has been added scholarship offers in a big way over the past year. The sharp shooting guard with some game off the bounce is one of the most talked about players in his class in the Midwest, and he is looking to continue to refine his game.
“As a team things weren’t going to well, but then we had a team meeting and got some things cleaned up and got the playoffs, and had a good year overall,” said Herro of the high school season.
He continued, “Personally I averaged 25 points, 6 assists, and 4 rebounds and played well, but I know I have a lot to improve on.”
Those impressive numbers led to a host of scholarship offers and even more interest coming his way.
“I have seven offers and a lot of Big Ten schools are interested,” said Herro. “Arizona and Kansas are the latest schools to contact me, and then Xavier and a few other Big East teams are interested. My offers are Wisconsin, Marquette, Green Bay, Milwaukee, Creighton, Sam Houston State, and DePaul.”
About visits, Herro said, “I have made a visit to Wisconsin, to Marquette, and also to DePaul.”
Traditionally Wisconsin has done a tremendous job recruiting inside the state, and Herro likes the Badgers and Head Coach Greg Gard.
“Wisconsin is obviously my in-state school and I like Coach Gard a lot,” said Herro. “Players from my AAU program have gone there and they liked it, so I am interested in them.”
Marquette is close to home, and Steve Wojciehowski has made sure that Herro knows he is a priority recruit for the Golden Eagles.
“Coach Wojo really stressed how much he wants me, and the day I was there was great,” noted Herro. “It was a great atmosphere and I liked it a lot.”
Also Herro enjoyed his trip to DePaul, and the Blue Demons are selling him on being a program changing recruit.
“DePaul is stressing that they just need that one player to help them turn it into a powerhouse,” said Herro. “So that is what they are selling me.”
At the moment Herro is in no hurry to make a decision and says he wants to gain as much information as he can about potential schools before coming to a decision.
