To Mid Major Or Not To Mid Major?

Matt Heramb is one of those summer guys that might have received just enough exposure to make his decision making process an interesting one. The forward out of Georgia has a number of scholarship offers ...

The summer was very kind to Matt Heramb, a 6-foot-9 power forward out of Douglasville (Ga.) Chapel Hill. His pre-July offers came from Wofford (first to step up) and Tennessee Tech.

After running with a high-profile traveling team, Heramb has seen attention in his game increase exponentially.

"Summer was very important," Heramb said. "It got me a lot of exposure. A lot of people didn't know about me. When I joined the Hurricanes I had that one great tournament in Suwannee. I just got exposed and it helped me out a lot."

During the last month, Western Kentucky, Charlotte, Chattanooga, Jacksonville, Richmond and UNC-Wilmington have offered.

"It's a lot of mid-majors but it just started," Heramb said. "It's a pretty good start. I've been getting a lot of calls and interest from higher schools but none of them have really offered."

Among the callers have been Georgia, Georgia Tech, Clemson, South Carolina, Alabama, Florida, Purdue, Georgia State, Boston College and West Virginia. "I'm pretty happy with Georgia, Georgia Tech, Alabama, Florida and Purdue."

Heramb has already been unofficially to Georgia Tech and Tennessee Tech. He's going to try and stop by to see Clemson, Purdue, Western Kentucky, Jacksonville, Charlotte and Chattanooga. School began August 1st for him.

"We're doing this year round thing," Heramb said. "On our breaks I'm going to drive around and see a couple of colleges."

"I want to go to a school where the fans and students get involved. I just want to go to a bigger school."

Translation: Heramb, with the mid-major offers in tow, will look around and see what the big dogs think of his game post-summer.
