Kyjaun Herndon is an explosive athlete out of Sandalwood High School in Jacksonville, Florida. At 5’10 , 180lbs Herndon can quickly make a defense pay for not plugging the right gaps. He is an electrifying player who can turn a 5 yard gain into a 50 yard touchdown. He is truly a lightning in a bottle type player.
Herndon is not only an elite running back but he also provides sparks in the passing game. He can translate as an extremely productive slot receiver at the next level. His game at WR reminds me a lot of Greg Dortch out of Wake Forest and Purdue freshman phenom Rondale Moore. Ironically both of those teams are recruiting Herndon.
I’ve been in recent contact with Kyjuan, who said the main teams he’s been hearing from are; Purdue, Kentucky, Wake Forest, Cincinnati, and UConn.
Herndon holds offers from: Purdue, Bowling Green, Costal Carolina, Virginia Tech, Ohio, and Tulane.
Kyjuan heads to Purdue on January 16th and to Kentucky on January 26th.
