247 national recruiting analyst Steve Wiltfong logged a prediction Monday morning that Herron — the No. 1 recruit in the state of Kentucky for the class of 2019 — will ultimately flip his commitment to Stanford.
Herron, who has an offer from UK and has been to Lexington in the past on recruiting visits, is the state’s No. 1 rising senior, according to the 247Sports composite rankings. He’s also the No. 68 overall national recruit and No. 5 weakside defensive end in the 2019 class.
Michigan landed Herron’s commitment back in July.
