  • Three-star point guard Myles Herro currently visiting Southern Illinois, per report

    KANSAS CITY — Class of 2025 three-star point guard Myles Herro, the younger brother of Miami Heat guard Tyler Herro, is currently on a visit to Southern Illinois Carbondale, per Evan Flood of 247Sports.

    Herro — the 6-foot-3, 165-pound guard from Whitnall (WI) and the Team Herro Nike EYBL AAU program — also confirmed to ZAGSBLOG at Session 4 he’s hearing mostly from Eastern Illinois and Rice.

    “There’s not many [schools] right now,” Herro said of his recruitment.

    This summer on the EYBL circuit, the Whitnall product has played point guard for Team Herro and averaged 5.3 assists per game, the second-highest rate in the entire EYBL. Herro describes himself as a pass-first player.

    “I try to make my teammates as happy as they can be and just get mine whenever I’m open,” Herro said. “I can also bring up the ball against anyone. I don’t feel any pressure. People usually pressure me but they can’t really take the ball.”

    Herro said in Kansas City he hasn’t taken any visits, so Southern Illinois is presumably his first. Herro added the interest from Eastern Illinois and Rice has been a positive experience, but he hasn’t discussed specifics with them yet.

    “I’m looking forward to building more of a connection,” Herro said.

    Herro has reported just two offers from Cal Poly and Western Illinois. The guard is ranked a three-star by 247Sports and the No. 37 overall point guard.

    Like his brother, Herro said he can knock down 3-pointers with ease. The biggest thing Herro has learned from Tyler, though, is how to attack a defense.

    “How to look at defenders,” Herro said. “How they’re guarding you. Where their feet are. When to attack. What space to attack. What hip to attack. Just how to create space.”

    When the two were young, they used to play 1v1 all the time, but they don’t play very often any more, Herro said.

    “I used to have to rebound for him all the time too,” Herro joked. “But now it’s more chill vibes.”

    Outside of basketball, the Herro brothers like to play tennis.

    “We just go at it, no matter what it is,” Herro said.
