Michigan has made an early impact on 2019 four-star defensive end Stephen Herron Jr. from Trinity High School (KY), as he visited and was offered by Michigan on February 13th.
“It feels great to know that they really find interest in me,” Herron said to Maize n Brew.
Herron is ranked No. 15 in the 2019 class, according to 247Sports. He is the second-best at weak-side defensive end and the No. 1 ranked player in the state of Kentucky.
After visiting Tennessee (Aug. 6), Louisville (Sep. 1), Kentucky (Sep. 3), and Notre Dame (Sep. 17), Herron decided to visit Michigan. The Wolverines offered and got their foot in the door with the stud from Kentucky.
“It was crazy,” he mentioned. “It really gave me that family factor and they showed me around the entire campus. I sat down with the coaches and went through film. They showed me what I would play at Michigan. They showed me the new blueprints for the new facilities. Michigan is going to have the best facilities in the nation.”
Herron has offers to play for Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio State, Indiana, Louisville, Mississippi State, Oregon, Purdue, Syracuse, and Tennessee.
Michigan is making a huge push to lock down Herron, as he said that every coach on campus talked with him about becoming a Wolverine.
