Saint Louis offensive lineman Nate Herbig is probably going to wait until the Feb. 3 signing day to choose which school he will commit to.
On Monday, Herbig told Hawaii Prep World that it’s between two schools — Cal and Stanford. He recently visited both campuses.
“I have a lot to think about,” Herbig said. “Cal is going in the right direction and they’re gonna be good. It’s hard to compete with Stanford, in the top three (No. 3 in the final Associated Press poll) in the country. Both are great schools.”
Herbig, who is 6 feet 4 and 320 pounds, played at Kauai High before transferring to Saint Louis. He was a Honolulu Star-Advertiser All-State first-team pick last fall for the Division I state runner-up Crusaders.
“Growing up on Kauai, I always wanted to play for Kauai High and I got that opportunity,” he said. “And then I got the opportunity to play at Saint Louis. The friends I’ve made here will be my best friends for life. Coming to Saint Louis was the best decision I’ve made in my life.”
Herbig has offers from nine other schools: Arizona State, Colorado, Hawaii, Oregon State, San Diego State, Texas Tech, UNLV, Washington and Washington State.
In June, Herbig made an oral commitment to Stanford on a taped segment with sportscasters Rob DeMello and Sam Spangler on KHON-2 TV’s 6 p.m. news.
Since then, he decommitted in order to keep his options open.
