Kentucky has offered 4-star 2018 shooting guard Tyler Herro a scholarship, according to Rivals reporter Corey Evans.
Herro recently decommitted from the Wisconsin Badgers and has opened up his recruitment. In addition to Kentucky, he’s also being recruited by Kansas, Oregon and Villanova, among others. He has offers from Wisconsin, Arizona and Florida, among others.
Herro is the No. 36 player in the 2018 class, according to the 247 Sports Composite. He’s ranked as the No. 4 shooting guard and the No. 2 player in the state of Wisconsin. He has good size for a shooting guard, standing 6-5, 195 lbs.
Kentucky head coach John Calipari visited Tyler Herro on Oct. 30. Herro has also been visited by Kansas, Butler, Oregon and Villanova since decommitting.
Scout.com recruiting expert Evan Daniels interviewed Herro after he was offered by Calipari.
"It feels good," Herro said when asked about the offer. "Meeting with coach Cal and coach [Kenny] Payne was good. They keep it real. They told me Kentucky is a different beast and if I want to make it then Kentucky is the spot. I'm still looking at all my options but it feels good."
Here is a shot of Herro and his family with Calipari and Kenny Payne:
Prior to Kentucky’s offer, Wisconsin led Kentucky 62 percent to 38 percent in Herro’s Crystal Ball, but it seems Wisconsin is out of the hunt.
