"We just won the state championship last Saturday night," Herndon said. "Now it's onto recruiting. I have a few of my official visits set up and I'm getting started in the weight room, preparing for track season."
Herndon, who finished the season with over 1,400 yards and 13 touchdowns, has not yet taken any visits.
"I know of three I have set up," he said. "I'm going to Indiana on January 19th and Troy the weekend before that. I'm also going to be visiting Miami but I don't know the date for that one yet. It was supposed to be this weekend but I'm taking the ACT on Saturday."
Herndon, 5-foot-10 and 175 pounds, said he received in-home visits from coaches at Indiana and Troy on Wednesday and the Miami coaches came last week.
"Miami actually offered me a scholarship on my birthday," he said. "It was on the 26th. Coach Hurtt came to the house about a week ago."
The standout receiver said there's a lot to like about the Hurricanes.
"They're a top program that has a lot of winning tradition and they've sent a lot of players into the NFL," he said.
With the news of Randy Shannon becoming the new head coach making waves on Thursday night, Herndon addressed that.
"That's real important to me," he said. "The head coach is real important in my decision. I've been dealing with Coach Hurtt, though."
The talented receiver said he also plans to visit UCLA within the next month or so.
