Khalil Herbert Hudl



A former track star, Khalil Herbert is fast. He came into his senior season at American Heritage High School as a backup. When the first stringer went down, Herbert came on strong. He finished that game with close to 100 yards and crossed 100 yards in the next two games. Herbert is an exciting player and looks to be a great fit in the Kansas Jayhawk offense. His coach says his muscular build and speed make him a special player. He ought to see some playing time further down the road in his career.

Herbert picked Kansas during his 5th and final official visit. Reportedly, Herbert was Kansas' top running back target in the 2016 class.
