Just wondering how big this guy really is. I have seen from 6'7" to 6'8" and 360 to 395 pounds.
At the Army All-American game he stood 6-8 3/4 and 395.
Depends when you weigh him !
From reading up on Herm, I got the impression that his weight fluctuated quite a bit in high school. 6'8" seems to be the most consistent listing of his height. Any way you look at it, the guys a MONSTER!!!
HJ is similar to Andre "The Giant" as his 7'10", 504 lbs. has him dubbed as the 5th greatest wonder of the world.
How big is Herman?
I heard that he was suspended from school in the 4th grade for eating a kid who cut in front of him in the lunch line.
Any word on if this guy can move. How is his foot work. I have heard his name, but haven't heard anything.
He evidentally wasn't on a lot of watch lists as he didn't have a great junior year. He moved to tackle and his coach said that he worked his tail off over the off season and that the reason he is now so highly coveted is that he really good, not just big. He runs a 5.7 forty I think but of course he'll never have to run that far for us. no know too much else about him but I am sure we will be getting more info plus his films a 2 days.
