From the moment Tyler Herro picked up a scholarship offer from Kentucky he knew where he wanted to go to school.

“I pretty much knew right way,” Herro told Scout. “I was looking at Oregon, that sounded like a good gig. Villanova had a good pitch too, but ultimately I knew where I wanted to go once I got that offer.”

Herro committed to the Wildcats on Tuesday, giving the John Calipari three commitment in the 2018 class. So why the Cats? Herro, who decommitted from Wisconsin in mid-October, said he quickly developed a bond with the Kentucky coaching staff.

“Just the relationship I had with Kenny Payne and the relationship I’ve built with Cal over the past few weeks,” he said when asked why he picked Kentucky.

“Obviously what they do to get guys to the NBA,” he added. “They just expressed that they have an opportunity for me. They think I can come in right away and play and play a big role in what they want to do.”

Herro took his official visit to Kentucky this past weekend. It’s the only trip that he took following his decommitment from the Badgers.
