Since signing with the Kentucky Wildcats, Wisconsin shooting guard Tyler Herro has done nothing but raise his stock as a recruit. He is quickly becoming one of the most prolific scorers in the 2018 class, and each night he makes Kentucky fans more and more excited to have him on campus.
Friday night, Herro followed up his 42 point effort from Tuesday with a spectacular 49 point performance. He is averaging 32.7 points per game with 7 games of over 40. He has only scored less than 30 points 4 times all season. And believe it or not, he can do more than score.
Since being snubbed by the selection committee for the McDonald’s All-American game, Herro is averaging an absurd 40.4 points per game. It seems a though he took it personally, and now he is taking it out on every high school basketball team in the state of Wisconsin.
Herro originally committed to Wisconsin in September of 2016, but reopened his recruitment and signed with Kentucky back in November. He joins Immanuel Quickley and Keldon Johnson in Kentucky’s 2018 class, and if Herro’s recent play has been any indication he will compete for playing time next season no matter who returns to the Wildcats.
The way Kentucky has struggled to score the basketball in the half court lately, the Wildcats could actually benefit from his services this season.
Herro and his Whitnall High School squad return to action next Friday, February 9th. That gives him an entire week to prepare for another outstanding performance. He may score 50.
