After a busy summer that saw him visit several schools to camp, Quitman (Ga.) Brooks County wide receiver Deric Herring's biggest offer to date actually came from a school that he didn't visit.
"I got the offer from Marshall early in the summer before we started practicing," Herring said. "I didn't go to camp there but they called my coach and said they liked what they saw on my film."
Since then Herring said he's been in regular contact with the Herd staff and is hoping to make the trip north for a visit this fall. He added that he doesn't know a ton about the program, but said from what he has learned he's been impressed.
"I know they run the spread and they're pretty good with their offense and how they work it," he said. "I plan on going to one of their games this season."
Herring also added an offer from Troy, after impressing the Trojans coaches at camp.
"I went to camp there and I did well and the coaches liked what they saw," Herring said. "They kept calling me and finally they came through and offered."
The 5-foot-9, 155-pound Herring sat out his team's season-opening victory on Friday, but is hoping to make his season debut this week.
