Kentucky Signee Tyler Herro is Ready to Get to Kentucky in June

June is quickly approaching and Kentucky’s 2018 recruiting class will officially be on campus. The entire class will arrive in June, and Tyler Herro is counting down the weeks.



Herro is a player that Big Blue Nation fell in love with from the start, and they can’t wait to see him in action this fall. He posted an edited image of himself to Twitter last week with the caption “4 weeks..”, meaning the number of weeks until he steps foot on campus.

Herro, Immanuel Quickley, Keldon Johnson, and E.J. Montgomery are all expected to arrive on campus for summer classes in June. Meanwhile, UK commit Ashton Hagans will wait until later in the summer when a final decision has been made about his reclassification status.


Herro posted the image on May 7th, but it was retweeted on Wednesday. What was four weeks is now less than three.



As for a jersey number, Herro will likely wear No. 14 if Jarred Vanderbilt returns to occupy No. 2. The chances that happens improves every day, especially after the freshman forward skipped the NBA Combine.
