Heramb Sorting Through Offers

Matt Heramb, an available power forward out of Chapel Hill High in Douglasville, Ga., is listening to pitches from college coaches around the nation. The 6-foot-9 recruit has a handful of schools in the mix for his services.

Matt Heramb had options during the fall signing period. He could have said "yes" to one of the best mid-major programs in the land. Instead, he let the week-long period pass to pursue other options.

"I've heard about that date," Heramb joked in reference to the early period.

While Heramb waited to see what the Alabama Crimson Tide would do with their scholarships, the period came and went which leads us to the end of February and the Chapel Hill forward is once again weighing options. In March, he'll have a final chance to put his skills on display at the Atlanta all-star game.

"I might wait until after I play the game to see if I do good and some of the schools that haven't offered yet might offer then," Heramb said. "I'm not really waiting on a specific school."

Western Kentucky has offered. So have Colorado and, according to Heramb, Auburn.

"Today, my mom told me that Auburn just offered. It's another school to make the decision a little tougher. I haven't talked to them lately and they just came out of nowhere and told my mom that they offered a scholarship."

This month, Heramb took an unofficial visit to Bowling Green to check out the Hilltoppers of Western Kentucky. "It was pretty nice. Nothing about the campus seemed mid-major. The facilities were nice, better than some of the other schools that I've seen. It didn't feel like one of those mid-major schools because so many people were into basketball."

Heramb has two official visits remaining. He's been to Colorado, Alabama and James Madison. The Tide hasn't offered him.

"I don't really know if there's that one leader yet. There's 3-4 schools that are pretty close."
