To no surprise, Tyler Herro picked the Kentucky Wildcats.

Watch four-star Kentucky basketball recruiting target Tyler Herro make his decisionPosted by Courier Journal on Tuesday, November 14, 2017
Herro begins his speech around the 7:00 mark, then goes on to discuss why he picked the Cats, getting to be coached by John Calipari, and who else Herro is recruiting to join him in the 2018 class (Zion).
It’s decision time for Tyler Herro.
The four-star shooting guard, who could earn a fifth star by the time the 2018 recruiting cycle ends, is set to make his college decision today. He will make the call at Whitnall High School library in front of friends, family and peers at 4:30 pm EST.
The expectation is he will pick the Kentucky Wildcats. Frankly, it would be one of the biggest recruiting upsets of the John Calipari era if Herro picks anyone other than Kentucky.
This is actually one of the rare recruitments where the decision will come with no real list of finalists. That’s how heavily favored Kentucky is in this recruitment, as he’s not even listing any other schools in the running ahead of his decision.
Some of the other programs to show interest in the 6-5, 195-pound guard include Florida, Arizona, Kansas, Oregon and Villanova among others.
Herro was committed to Wisconsin before decommitting in October, as he knew some bigger offers were coming if he reopened his recruitment.
While we wait for Herro to make his decision, Courtside Films have released some new highlights of Herro in action:
