Welcome to our series chronicling the #TNSF (The New South Florida) USF recruiting class of 2021. The series will breakdown every single recruit and transfer that signed on the dotted line to officially become a part of Head Coach Jeff Scott’s second recruiting class. Help us welcome DB Jalen Herring to the Bulls!
DB Jalen Herring – Lawton Chiles High School (Tallahassee, FL)
Committed to the Bulls since August 3rd, Herring represents the litany of secondary recruits that were brought into the 2021 class. Ranked as the 119th best athlete in the country, Herring has received offers from programs such as FIU, Navy, South Alabama, Coastal Carolina, and Army to name a few.
Run the Tape:
Track speed in the secondary. Shows the ability to put his foot in the ground and make a break towards the ball on pass plays downfield. Willing tackler. Ability to play both sides of the ball as he was utilized on offense heavily during his senior season. Flashed the ability to make plays in the secondary at safety on his junior tape.
Herring is a similar mold as Dequan Stanley who played both sides of the ball for their respective high schools. Herring projects as a cornerback at the next level and with his athleticism at the position, you’re looking at a defensive back that has all of the tools to be successful in the secondary. Mark Herring as a recruit to watch down the road as he develops at cornerback with the Bulls.
