Herro, who stands 6-foot-6 and weighs 195 pounds, has been touted as a strong outside shooter that can create his own shot, as well as get to the rim. He is also considered an adept defensive player.
During the NCAA tournament, he converted a game-winning three-point shot against the University of Houston in the Sweet 16. This led to him being named to the NCAA Midwest Regional All-Tournament team.
His coach, John Calipari, had this to say about Herro:
“Tyler is wired and driven like few other players I’ve coached. A complete basketball player who can score on the bounce, who can shoot it, who can defend and who can rebound. It’s his total package that will make Tyler successful at the next level.”
Overall, Herro averaged 14.2 points and 4.5 rebounds per game in 2018-19 while shooting 46.9 percent from the field, 37.3 percent from beyond the three-point line and an outstanding 94 percent from the free-throw line.
