Massive Indiana offensive lineman DeAndre Herron is the newest member of Charlie Strong's 2012 recruiting class after committing to Louisville on Tuesday.
Herron, a 6-6, 315-pound monster out of Avon High School in the Hoosier State, started all 13 games at right tackle last season as a junior, but could play left tackle in college. Before last season Herron had only played defensive line, so he's still a very raw product.
"For being new to the position, he's attracting a lot of attention," Herron's head coach Mark Bless said last week. "He has a lot of potential playing the offensive line, especially tackle. He has good feet, strength and flexibility. He's just now understanding offensive line footwork, and he's starting to refine some of his mechanics."
Herron is the 10th player in the class of 2012 to commit to Louisville. For reference, on this date three years ago Steve Kragthorpe had two commitments for his 2009 class, three-star LB Mike Privott and two-star DB Zed Evans.
