Meet your 2019 Recruits: Chris Herron, QB, Texas

Kelly Thompson

Wildcat offensive coordinator and former star quarterback Collin Klein traveled deep in to Texas and nabbed a top tier athlete. 

Chris Herron, a 6'0, 192 lb athlete from Langham Creek High School in Houston committed to Kansas State and Coach Klein (and Coach Klieman) in December after a lengthy recruiting process. Herron took his official visit last June, then committed. But will Bill Snyder retired, the fan base was unsure if Herron would sign. 

On December 19th, Herron signed his letter of intent to join Kansas State. 

A quarterback in high school, Herron passes an elite skill set of a cannon arm and elite athletic talent in footwork, speed, elusiveness. These combinations made him one of the most dynamic duel threat quarterbacks in Texas, and in the nation. Rivals ranked him the 8th best duel threat quarterback in the country in 2019. 

The Wildcats beat out multiple offers from competitive schools to land the young signal caller. Houston, Baylor, TCU and Nebraska were all hot on Herron's trail. For Kansas State to come out on top is a tremendous victory. 

Officially recruited as an Athlete, it will be interesting to see how the coaching staff works him in to the fold. Early in his career, I'd expect to see him work in in some trick formations or Wildcat looks. But, he'll be competing for the starting job in Manhattan after Skylar Thompson graduates.

I like that he's not a one-check-and-run guy despite being labeled as a dual-threat. He moves well as things break down around him and keeps his eyes downfield. Looks pretty advanced in that aspect, and dat arm.

I doubt he stays at QB his while career, but I think there is a spot for him somewhere. Big time playmaker.
