Opelika, Ala., athlete-quarterback Will Herring is starting to get deep into the recruiting process, and finding the right fit appears to be the biggest thing, according to his father.
"He's really made some strong strides as a quarterback," his father said. "He's now completing about 60 percent of his passes, but with the offense they run they don't throw it enough for most teams to look at him as a quarterback only."
But that's starting to change.

N.C. State is recruiting Herring heavily as a quarterback, while Tennessee has told the 6-foot-3, 205-pound three-star selection that they like him as a quarterback but also like his athletic ability and would like to maybe try him out at receiver.
Auburn, which has offered a scholarship, is talking to Herring about playing strong safety.
And new teams like Arkansas, Ole Miss and Georgia Tech are starting to show even more attention than before.
"It's going to be hard," his father said. "Will is going to have to find the best fit for him and make the decision based on where he sees himself at."
Baseball is also a factor because he batted more than .450 last season and will get a chance to play both sports in college.
