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.

“Talking to my family the last couple of months, I felt eerie about it and wasn’t sure it was the move I wanted to make,” Herro told Evan Daniels of Scout. Herro continued to Daniels, “I just want to make sure I was making the right move. Obviously, I pulled away and I’m going to explore some other options.”

Herro told Daniels that Wisconsin will not be considered with his decision making going forward. The biggest question is who is in contention for Herro? He has spoken to Kansas, Arizona, Ohio State, Villanova, Creighton, Florida, and Oregon. Evan Flood of 247Sports reported that Kentucky and North Carolina will be in the mix for Herro as well.

Herro told Daniels of Scout that UNLV has reached out about an in-home visit on Friday (Oct. 20th). Kansas could also be in on Thursday (Oct. 19th) to see the four-star shooting guard.

When Daniels asked Herro what he is now looking for, his response was, “I’m just looking for a college that I can excel in the offense, come in right away and contribute, have a great relationship with the coach and hopefully that school can get me to next level.”

It will be interesting to see who comes to light in Herro’s recruitment as he re-evaluates his decision.
