Louisville commit DeAndre Herron has failed to qualify academically and will reportedly attend Iowa Western Community College now instead. Herron will play his two years there and then look to either join the Cards or re-open his recruitment. The much-heralded, 6-6, 308 lb, lineman from Avon high school in Avon, Indiana was rumored to be in jeopardy of not making it to the Ville all summer. Louisville fans’ worst fears were realized today after this series of tweets from the 3-star prospect:
No official word yet from the Louisville football program or Rocco Gasparro, but it appears like the Cards lost a good one today. In a quick piece published about an hour ago, Herron told Scout.com national football recruiting analyst Allen Trieu that, quote, “I took classes online to better my GPA and it turns out, my online class didn’t fit NCAA standards.” I doubt that’s the full story, but at this point it doesn’t really matter. Louisville lost Ryan White yesterday, gained Corey Cooper and now loses DeAndre Herron.
All in a day’s work, people.
