Herron becoming more comfortable at Michigan

One of the top upcoming defensive ends is Kentucky’s premiere pass rusher Stephen Herron, who returned to Ann Arbor and thoroughly enjoyed his experience

Louisville (KY.) Trinity 2019 defensive end Stephen Herron has started to become a familiar face in Ann Arbor. The talented pass rusher traveled to Michigan back in February and was back for their annual spring game, where he felt the love once again. 


“The visit went great,” Herron told The Michigan Insider. “I got to meet a bunch of new prospects and spend plenty of time with the coaches. I talked with literally all the coaches (laughs). They were just explaining how I fit into the scheme. (Defensive Line) Coach (Greg) Mattison told me I'd be the first prospect he's coming to see too.”

The athletic 6-foot-4, 220-pounder continues to build relationships with the Wolverine coaching staff, but also that form a stronger sense of comfortability around the program as well.  

“Of course I did (feel more comfortable after visiting again),” said Herron. “I felt comfortable the first time too. I feel even more comfortable because I feel like family when I walk in. I'm the first one the coaches talk to. Someone is always waiting for me to come in. The coaches are great, and the many great things coming to Michigan excite me.”

While it is a long way from Herron making any decisions, his most recent visit to Michigan has him still just as interested in the Maize and Blue.

“I'm very interested in Michigan like I have been from the very beginning,” said Herron.

Michigan has also been making headlines traveling to Rome this spring and Herron sees that as another aspect that intrigues him about the Wolverines.

“That's definitely unique and something I couldn't get at other schools in the U.S.,” said Herron. “Definitely as a scholarship athlete, I feel like you're given a lot, but also have a few student opportunities stripped from you.”
