Tray Herndon Likely to Wait for Decision

Tray Herndon, a 5-foot-11, 180-pound wide receiver from Jacksonville (FL) Bolles, will likely wait until Wednesday to make his college decision. Herndon led Bolles to a 14-0 mark this season and a state championship. The Bolles Bulldogs won the title as they defeated Clewiston 27-24 in triple overtime at Dolphins Stadium. Herndon had three catches for 91 yards, including a 58-yard touchdown.

Tray Herndon visited Troy Jan. 12, Indiana Jan. 19 and Middle Tennessee State last weekend. There had been talk that he had committed to Indiana, but he still made the visit to Minnesota.

Herndon had an outstanding senior season as he broke the area record for receiving yards in regular-season play with 1,363 yards in ten games.

Bolles was a dominant team this season as they outscored their opposition 624-138.

Herndon received a scholarship offer from Miami, but has not heard much from the Hurricanes recently, according to his mother, Olivia Spurlock.

Spurlock accompanied her son on the visit to Minnesota.

"It was a beautiful school, but I've seen a lot of schools. They tend to blur together," she said.

Spurlock admitted that the record cold tempature did not appeal to her, but that they enjoyed the visit.

"Other than it was cold, it was a nice school."

Herndon was named to the Class 2A All-State Football team, which was selected by the Florida Sports Writers Association. He is ranked No. 89 among the top 100 state prospects by the Orlando Sun Sentinel.

Herndon is also an outstanding track and field athlete. He competes in the 200 meters (24.10), long jump (18-6) and triple jump (35-10).
