DE Malik Herring Profile
The Tigers' defensive staff is already looking to build on that
success with the next recruiting class. Clemson is already making a
push for 2017 Mary Persons High School 4-star defensive end Malik
Herring from Forsyth, Georgia.
Herring has an impressive list of suitors already, including offers
from Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisville,
Mississippi State, Penn State, South Carolina and Tennessee, as well
With Herring's signing day being more than a year and a half away,
little has been decided about where the defensive end will play his
collegiate football, but Herring is getting his visits started this
weekend. "I haven't been to any spring games yet, but I'll be
attending Florida State's spring game," explained Herring.
ALthough Clemson is missing out on a visit from Herring to its spring
game, the Tigers have stood out to the 2017 prospect thus far.
"I have no official favorites. The schools I've noticed most in
recruiting are Clemson, Florida State, Alabama and Georgia," said
Having explained that Clemson was amongst the schools that have stood
out the most so far, Herring went on to point out exactly what he's
liked most about the school.
"Their coaches were amazing," he said. "Their
facilities and campus are beautiful. They have an outstanding academic
program. I talk to Coach Hobby a lot." Herring continued, "He's a
great coach and every time we talk I feel a bond growing."
Because he's in the class of 2017, Herring just finished up his
sophomore year of football and is looking toward his junior year as it
"I want to make defensive player of the year for
my region and I want to make all-state," said Herring.
Because Herring has not yet guaranteed a list of final schools to
decide upon, he's planning on taking his time with his commitment.
"I'm going to wait it out because 2017 is a long time from now, and
I'm not in a rush to make a decision yet. And I don't want to make a
decision I regret," stated Herring.
Herring is 6-foot-3, 253 pounds. The 2017 4-star defensive end has
been timed at 5.28 seconds in the 40-yard dash.
