Tyler Herro is pretty well-known in Kentucky now that he’s a UK signee, but as a four-star recruit, he’s not the national star that some of the past John Calipari recruits have been.

That shouldn’t be the case, according to some of Herro’s peers. Zion Williamson called him “the most underrated player in our class,” and Keldon Johnson said he brings “buckets” to next year’s team.

Herro was apart of the Jordan Brand Classic game, where he scored 13 points on 5-of-9 shooting while dishing five assists and grabbing five rebounds.
