Sugarland (Texas) Fort Bend Dulles linebacker Brandon Herron appeared close to a commitment earlier in the year to a Big 12 North school, but things have definitely changed.
Dulles coach Jim Creech says that Herron is now looking at taking all of his official visits. It doesn't appear he'll be getting to those trips anytime soon either.
"He was really high on Nebraska and then I think his parents, more than anything, wanted him to wait and look at other options," Creech said about Herron. "They were trying to visit up there early during the season on a Saturday and he just wasn't able to make it.

"His parents just want him to make the best decision and not make it before seeing the campus."
At this point, Herron has no visits set up. With the schedule shaping up with another Saturday game and a playoff spot pretty inevitable, it doesn't look like he'll take any trips during his senior campaign.
"It will probably be sometime in November or December when he gets that done," Creech said about Herron's visits.
Creech has moved Herron to a standup defensive end position where he can get after quarterbacks more efficiently. Apparently, that's made a world of difference.
"We put him there and three weeks ago he had nine tackles, three sacks, a bat down, and a fumble recovery," Creech said. "We decided we'd let him play that position because it's natural.
"On what he'll play at the next level, it depends on how big he gets. He's so long and lean it's hard to tell. If he grows into his legs, he's going to be close to 260 pounds."
