Herring Plans ECU Visit

2016 Millbrook (Raleigh, N.C.) quarterback Reid Herring received an offer from ECU recently and will visit this summer. Inside ECU Sports spoke with him about the Pirates.

Quarterback Reid Herring from Millbrook High School in Raleigh, N.C. received his first two Division 1 football offers in April and it happened in exciting fashion. The talented signal-caller received both offers on the same day, the first was from Miami and the second from ECU.

"My dream has always been to play college football," said the 6-foot-3, 175-pound Herring. "The day I got my first two offers was one of the best days of my life."

Right now Herring is also hearing from a laundry list of schools. North Carolina, Tennessee, South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, Duke, Stanford and N.C. State have all shown interest in him.

He mentioned the next to offer could be Duke or UNC. Both schools will be coming to watch Herring throw soon and have been in heavy contact with him.

As for ECU, Herring is anything but uninformed about the Pirates.

"I've always been interested in ECU," said Herring. "It's a really exciting place to watch a football game. I talked to (offensive coordinator) Lincoln Riley about the program and what it's like to be in Greenville. I plan on visiting this summer to throw for them and hang out."

Herring also mentioned he has a cousin that graduated from ECU and family close to the school.

While there are a lot of ACC schools paying him more attention as his recruitment goes on, Herring believes ECU will be in it for the long run. He mentioned he will play where the best opportunity is and that he was a fan of the Pirates before receiving his offer.

This summer will be a busy one for Herring as he prepares for his junior campaign. He plans on taking trips to multiple college campuses in order to build his knowledge about the schools that are interested.

"I plan on going to one-day camps," said Herring. "I have a four-day trip planeed that till include visits to UNC, Duke, South Carolina, Georgia and hopefully Clemson. I'll be visiting Miami and I'm trying to go up to Boston College."
