Fremont big man Thomas Herring (USC Nike Camp stats - 6-6, 290 lbs, 4.8 in the 40, 3.5 GPA, 820 SAT) was finally able to talk to one of the Michigan coaches, "I talked to Coach English this evening," Herring said. "He said he's been trying to call me and has left messages. I told him I was sorry I hadn't been able to return his call."
Herring has said from the beginning Michigan was a school he really wanted to visit. It looks like the Wolverines will be the first to officially host the talented lineman, "We set it up for me to come back for the October 18th game against Illinois," Herring said. "Michigan is my first visit and I'm excited."
While USC has been on top for Herring, in the past he's said the reason for that is, "It's the only school I've been too. It's right near my house."
How do things stand now for him? "USC and Miami are probably my top schools," he said. "Then it's Michigan, Oklahoma, and Notre Dame. Those are the schools I plan to visit. My mom wants me to leave the state though, so there's no problem with that."
October 18th is turning into the Day of The Big Guy as far as U-M visits are concerned. Along with Herring, Michigan will host Cibola (New Mexico) DL Alan Branch, as well as Pomona (California) LB/DL Eugene Germany. Germany's teammate, DB Keston Cheathem, is also set to visit that weekend.
Herring and his Pathfinders have started the season 2-0. Herring said he has about 10 tackles and 2 sacks so far. Fremont plays Los Angeles University this Friday at University.
