Three years is enough for Stanford’s Nate Herbig.

The 6-foot-4, 334-pound offensive lineman announced Wednesday that he will forego his senior year of eligibility and declared for the NFL Draft.

Herbig, a 2016 Saint Louis alumnus, was featured in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser’s Hawaii Grown section earlier this year, which you can read by clicking here.

Herbig missed time with an injury this season but still managed to make the All-Pac-12 second team this year after earning first-team honors as a sophomore. He played in seven games, returning for a 23-13 win over California on Dec. 1 after missing five consecutive games. Stanford went 3-2 in his absence, losing to Washington and Washington State.

Stanford coach David Shaw revealed earlier this week that Herbig will not play in the Sun Bowl against Pittsburgh on Dec. 31.

The Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller lists Herbig as the No. 3 offensive guard in the draft.

Herbig’s younger brother, Nick, is currently a junior at Saint Louis and made the Honolulu Star-Advertiser All-State first team this season.
