PROVO, Utah – BYU football cornerback Isaiah Herron has entered the NCAA’s Transfer Portal. Herron, a 6-foot-1 175-pound defensive back signed with BYU as part of the 2018 recruiting class and played the past two seasons in 15 games with the Cougars.

In 2019, Herron started at cornerback in seven consecutive games with his last start at BYU coming against Liberty on November 9th.

Herron signed with BYU out of Arbor View High School in the Las Vegas, Nevada area.

Last month, during a Zoom call for fans to get excited for the upcoming football season, BYU defensive coordinator Ilaisa Tuiaki pointed out Herron as a player who “was starting to come on” at the cornerback position.

Out of high school, cornerbacks coach Jernaro Gilford was high on the potential of Herron before he even played a snap for the Cougars noting that the former Las Vegas standout had great size and speed to excel at cornerback.

Herron was a player that stood out to Tuiaki during spring practices before the COVID-19 pandemic shut down all athletic activities nationwide.

During his two seasons at BYU, Herron recorded 26 tackles and had two pass breakups. 22 of those 26 tackles came during the 2019 season.

Herron has three years of eligibility remaining in his collegiate career. If he transfers to another school he will have to sit out the 2020 football season and lose a year of eligibility.
