It's a deep year for quarterbacks in the Golden State, something we've mentioned numerous times this year. One player we haven't talked a lot about but is someone we liked at the SoCal NIKE Camp is Perris (Calif.) Citrus Hills standout Caleb Herring and the signal caller made his college choice earlier this morning.
Herring, 6-3, 170 pounds is a long, lanky kid with a live arm and plus athleticism. He threw in the top group at the NIKE Camp at USC despite missing most of Spring ball while participating on the schools track team.
"He just committed to UNLV this morning," CH coach Doug Dubois said. "He had a lot of other schools looking at but UNLV was the first to offer and I always tell my kids to go where they're the most wanted.
"I thought Fresno State was going to offer and Caleb really liked them a lot but they got a commitment from (Derek) Carr and that ended that. Oregon really likes him, Arizona State, Arizona, San Diego State, they all want Caleb to camp with them but he was just comfortable with UNLV.
"He likes the school and coaching staff a lot. They said Caleb reminds them of a young Randall Cunningham and they like his ability to run and throw. He's going to fill out and he already has a big arm and good feet. He's improving a great deal and I think he has a very upside to him because he's just growing in to the position. I really think UNLV got a steal here."
As a junior, Herring threw for 2,600 yards and 25 touchdowns for a team that went 14-0 and won a CIF Championship.
