Dallas Highland Park safety standout James Herring is headed to arguably the most prestigious academic institution in the world after announcing his commitment to Harvard on Friday.

Herring sided with the Crimson over offers from Army, Houston Baptist and SMU.

A two-star prospect, Herring earned second-team all-district honors as a junior after racking up 105 tackles, eight pass breakups and two interceptions for the Scots.

He now becomes commit No. 3 for Harvard and the first defensive pledge this cycle, lifting the Crimson’s 2018 class to No. 125 nationally and No. 1 in the Ivy League.

A 6’0, 185-pound prospect, Herring is ranked as the nation’s No. 193 safety and the No. 366 player in Texas, per 247Sports.
