DE Malik Herring Profile
Other than 2015 AC Flora (Columbia, SC) wide receiver
signee Denzel Johnson's commitment a couple of weeks ago, Clemson has not
received a commitment since March 26th when 4-star IMG Academy (Bradenton,
FL) defensive end Rahshaun Smith joined the 2016 class.
4-star 2017 defensive end Malik Herring from Mary Parsons High School
(Forsyth, GA) continues to hear from the Tigers on a regular basis and spent
some time catching up with CUTigers on his recruitment.
"I'm going to the Rivals 5-Star Challenge June 5th-7th in Baltimore," said
Herring of his upcoming plans. "I expect to have a good time and compete
with the best of the best. I've already attended the one they had at Lambert
High. This is my first time going to the 5-Star Challenge, so I'm assuming
that there will be a lot of good talent there."
Although Herring's camp is right around the corner, he's not spending the
meantime just sitting around.
"I'm going to Auburn Saturday, and I'm trying
to attend Alabama Sunday," he said.
Herring already holds offers from Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, FSU,
Georgia, Louisville, Penn State, South Carolina, Tennessee and more. Herring
claims no leaders at this time but says there are several schools that have
"I talked to Defensive Coordinator Brent Venables two weeks ago,"
said Herring. "I notice that Clemson and Louisville have been sending me a
lot of mail. I would say I'm talking to LSU the most."
As Herring approaches his junior season of high school, he spoke about what
he expects to do on the football field.
"I want to improve on my pad level and work on my speed." Herring continued
saying, "Individually, I want to make Defensive Player of the Year for my
region and make All-State. As a team, we lost our whole team. So we have to
rebuild as a team. I want to shock our community by having a winning season
and win the region championship. And, hopefully, we could go to State and
win that as well. I do think we have the right tools. All it takes now is
chemistry with each other and leadership, which I'm willing to handle."
