Tyler Herro, the 6-foot-6 shooting guard from Whitnall (WI) High School, de-committed from Wisconsin on Tuesday via Twitter. He first committed to Wisconsin last year (Sept. 12).

“After a lot of conversations with my family and prayer, I have decided to reopen my recruitment and explore all of my options,” said Herro in a statement released via Twitter.

According to 247Sports, Herro is ranked as the No. 36 overall player in the Class of 2018 and the No. 4 shooting guard in the class. Before committing to Wisconsin, Herro also held offers from schools such as Arizona, Boston College, Creighton, DePaul, Florida, Indiana, Iowa State, Marquette, Nebraska, Purdue, Sam Houston State, Wisconsin-Green Bay, Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and Xavier, among others.

“The past year, since I committed, I have grown not only as a basketball player, but as a person. My drive to become the best on all levels has been the fuel that drove this decision,” he said. “I want to thank Badger fans for their constant support over the years. I wish the University of Wisconsin nothing but the best. The state of Wisconsin has always treated me with tremendous support and I will always call Wisconsin my home. I am not asking anyone to like my decision, but to respect it. I’m looking forward to the next chapter in my life and thanks again for your continued support.”

Herro’s de-commitment leaves Joe Hedstrom as the only commit in the Badger’s 2018 class. Hedstrom is reportedly on a 4-for-5 offer, which means he’d be a walk-on in his first year before earning a scholarship for his final four years. Herro took his official visit to Wisconsin last month (Sept. 30).

This past summer, Herro played with Wisconsin Playground Elite on the Nike EYBL Circuit.
