Heron, a 6-foot-5 wing who decommitted from Pittsburgh in the month following Sacred Heart’s second-consecutive state championship, gave his verbal during an unofficial visit on Sunday, Scout reported.
“…I got a vibe here that I didn’t get at any other schools that I visited,” he told the recruiting news site. “It was a family oriented thing.”
Heron averaged 22 points and 5.3 rebounds per game to become the second junior to ever earn Register State Player of the Year honors, following Kris Dunn of New London, who accomplished that feat in 2011.
He’s a five-star recruit and one of the nation’s top prospects in the Class of 2016.
