The Tigers, who join LSU in offering, have been showing interest in Hebert, but he was not expecting an offer this soon from the defending SEC West champions.
"I have been getting letters from them, but I was very surprised with the offer."
Hebert was in Baton Rouge for LSU's Junior Day event last weekend when the offer took place.
"I was sitting down eating lunch at the Junior Day last Saturday and one of the girls came to get me and took me to Coach Les Miles' office," he said. "We were just talking about them losing their center and how they needed one. Then, we were talking again and he said they would love for me to come there and he offered me a scholarship."
It made Hebert, the son of former New Orleans Saints quarterback Bobby Hebert feel great.
"It was like a dream come true," he said. "I grew up in Louisiana dreaming of an LSU offer and I got it. It was a great feeling."
This offer pulled the Tigers even with the Rebels.
"Right now, LSU and Ole Miss are on top," he said. "They are dead even right now. They are definitely my top two."
A trio of southern programs follow the Tigers and Rebels.
"I would say Auburn, Clemson, and Georgia are next."
The Bulldogs and Gators have started to show increased attention to this talented Peach State lineman.
Hebert has been a man on the move in recent weeks and he doesn't plan on slowing down anytime soon.
"I visited Ole Miss a couple weeks ago, then LSU last weekend. I am going over to Auburn this weekend and then will be over at Georgia on March 25 for a scrimmage."
