Visits may not happen for Herron

Avon, Ind., offensive guard DeAndre Herron has been committed to Louisville since the summer, but the three-star prospect had considered making official visits to Pittsburgh and Indiana before National Signing Day.
Herron went into this past weekend considering a trip to Pittsburgh, but that visit never materialized and he is unsure whether one to Indiana will take place this coming weekend.
"I ended up saying, 'forget it,'" Herron said of the Pittsburgh trip. "I've got the SAT Saturday's so I might go up to IU after I take the SAT's. They've been to the school a couple times and we've just been talking.
Herron said it would be "really hard" for Indiana or any other school to make him reconsider his commitment. He did take his official visit to Louisville the weekend of Jan. 13, a trip that furthered his love for the Cardinal's program.
"Everything is real good and I love going down there every time," Herron said.
Herron has developed a close bond with fellow Louisville offensive line commits Sid Anvoots and Joe Manley, which decreases his desire to consider other schools.
"Me, Joe Manley and Sid talk almost every day," Herron said. "I've built a relationship with all of them, and I just can't get up and leave if other schools extend me an offer because we all feel at home and we have this brother system going on."
This past fall, Herron started at right tackle for his Avon High team. He could play that role at Louisville as well, though talk recently has indicated offensive guard will likely be the position he ends up at.
"When we talked about it before they said they were going to start me off at right tackle, and then see how I do from there," Herron said.
The 6-5, 325-pound Herron is ranked as the No. 48 offensive guard prospect in the country and the No. 14 player in the state of Indiana.
