Lonestar LB Likes LSU

Brandon Herron admits that LSU is one of his favorites. The only problem is that he hasn't received an offer from them, yet. Last season the 6-2, 200 linebacker out of Sugar Land (Texas) Dulles led his team in tackles with 50, and he also registered three sacks.

The only problem is that he hasn't received an offer from them, yet.

 

Last season the 6-2, 200 linebacker out of Sugar Land (Texas) Dulles led his team in tackles with 50, and he also registered three sacks.

 

Herron has received 15 offers so far from teams like Nebraska, University of Houston, UTEP, Kansas State, Oklahoma State, Arizona, Tulane, Minnesota and Missouri.

 

"Right now my top four is Nebraska, LSU, Kansas State and Oklahoma State," said Herron. "I talked with coach Bradley Dale Peveto and I told him if they offer I would put them at the top of my list. But, like I told every coach, I'm going to wait until I take my official visit before I make a decision."

 

Herron said that he has expressed a great interest in LSU, but his enthusiasm has not been reciprocated.

 

"I told him I was very interested and he got really excited and said he would get back with me," said Herron. "That was a couple of weeks ago and I haven't received any messages or anything positive. I know that there are rules and stuff so the coaches can't always call, but I know they can send a text message or something."

 

LSU has always been one of Herron's favorites and particularly for the past three years.

 

"I like the program," said Herron. "I've really liked them since I was a freshman in high school."

 

Herron said he has been working out and trying to get bigger in the off season and is working on his 40-yard dash time.

 

"I've been working out and working out hard," said Herron. "I worked on my 40-time today and I ran 4.51 twice and my lowest was 4.43."

 

The Lonestar linebacker will not be attending camps this summer, choosing instead to let his play on the field be a coach's gauge of his talent.

 

"Basically my coach told me that I don't need to go to any camps," said Herron. "I don't really think my aunt and uncle would have time to take off and bring me and I don't really feel like I need to go. You just got to go out there and if they like you they like you."

 

Herron said that none of that will matter if the school he chooses doesn't have the program he wants to major in.

 

"My first reason for picking a school is going to be academics," said Herron. "I want to go into nursing. I like the hospital environment and I just like taking care of folks."

 

Note** Herron said he has no trouble going out of state to play, and that he scored an 1140 on his SAT on his first try. He said his core GPA is currently a 2.9.
