Kirby Smart said after the first scrimmage of spring:
“Brian Herrien is a guy that we were going to get the ball to and find out what he can do in scrimmage situations – he did pretty well. He ran the ball really hard…had a couple of long, explosive runs. He’s a tough, competitive guy…”
Herrien, who was a late qualifier acadenically last year, has proved to be an extremely hard runner often dragging tacklers for yards-after-contact in games.
Jake Rowe (247Sports) recenty noted:
“Herrien has also been working as a slot receiver in a group with Michel, junior receiver Terry Godwin, sophomore receiver Mecole Hardman Jr., junior tight end Jackson Harris, and sophomore tight end Charlie Woerner this spring, fine tuning his pass-catching skills and expanding the potential impact he can have on the offense.”
