OLB Darreon Herring Profile
One of those two offers by Clemson's first-year defensive ends coach went to junior outside linebacker Darreon Herring. The Tigers also offered three-star linebacker Raphael Kirby.
"[Hobby] told our coach that handles all of our recruiting, then our coach let us know," Herring told CUTigers.com earlier this week.
About a week prior to Hobby's offer, the prospect and coach spoke on the phone.
"He was telling me that they wanted me to come up there and they wanted to see me before they offer. In that case, he said, ‘You're offered.' They basically offered me over the phone," Herring said. "It really wasn't official until a week later. That's when he let coach know."
The Clemson offer joins several others for Herring, which include North Carolina, Nebraska and West Virginia.
"I don't know too much about [Clemson]. I've seen them playing on TV. Other than that, I don't know too much about them," he said.
There's an interest in the Tigers.
"Every team has a chance. I'm going to make a visit to all the schools that I can, to make sure the school is right for me and everything would be good about the school," Herring said.
He's yet to visit Clemson, but has taken trips to Vanderbilt, North Carolina, Alabama, Florida, Auburn and South Florida.
With spring practice set to get underway on May 4, Herring doesn't have any plans for visits.
The rising senior is "wide-open" with his future decision.
"I'll have my decision by the middle of the summer on where I want to go," he said. "I'll probably commit then."
As a junior, Herring had 76 tackles, three sacks, an interception and a forced fumble.
