WATCH: Tyler Herro’s Final Days Before Departing for UK

Last week Tyler Herro joined his teammates on campus at the University of Kentucky.  Before he made the trip from Wisconsin to Lexington, Herro opened his door to camera crews.

During the 12-minute documentary, Herro explained why he chose to leave his home state school to play for Kentucky.  Among the many reasons, playing for Hall of Fame coach John Calipari was near the top.

“Coach Cal reminds me of my Dad,” Herro said.  “When I was little, my Dad was on me 24/7, screaming at me, making sure I was working hard.  Now that I have Coach Cal and Coach Payne, they’re going to point out the little things that will hopefully get me to the next level.”

You’ve seen basketball highlights from Herro.  Now let the Overtime mini-documentary help you get to know the person who wears the jersey.

Voted “Most Unforgettable” in his senior class, you’ll see his final days of high school.  There’s a senior prank, he makes a trip to the barber shop and goes sneaker shopping with his friends.  There are fun, upbeat moments at his going-away party, and emotional moments after his graduation.  It all gives you a better idea of who will be wearing the Kentucky blue and white this fall.
