Stephen Herron felt like his first scholarship offer was coming.
On Saturday, that offered arrived and it was from a Power 5 school. Herron spent time at the University of Louisville's camp and left with an offer after working out in front of head coach Bobby Petrino and defensive coordinator Todd Grantham.
The 6-foot-4, 220-pound Herron is from New Albany, Ind., and will be a sophomore at Trinity High School in the fall. He's being recruited as a defensive lineman and appears he could play the end position.
Herron said his first offer was special.
"It just felt heartwarming and humbling to know that everything I've worked for and will continue to work for is finally paying off and going towards something extremely positive in my life," Herron said. "I'm blessed and of course have to thank my savior, peers, parents, coaches, teachers as well as my trainer Chris Vaughn."
Herron, who started to make a name for himself in February at the Best of the Midwest, had 75 tackles, including five sacks as a freshman.
While U of L was his first offer, Herron said he went to Tennessee on Friday for a camp and has been several other places. He said he has also received interest from Indiana, Kentucky, Purdue, Ball State, Eastern Michigan, Tennessee, Western Kentucky, Rutgers, Virginia and others.
