After a tough regular season that saw Chiles go 1-7 and an opening round loss in the state playoffs, Herring was a bright spot for the Timberwolves. His track speed was on full display as he took duties as a cornerback, running back, wide receiver, and return man. Due to his speed, his high school coaching staff shifted to a run first offense to give Herring the ball as often as possible, but that didn’t stop him from making plays on defense as well.
Providing sure tackles and ample coverage in the secondary while being able to showcase his field vision running the football would lead most to believe that Herring will contribute right away on special teams at the very least. The coaching staff could also look to utilize him in the slot or in the wildcat by getting the ball in the hands of a dangerous playmaker.
