The Central Michigan Chippewas have added their quarterback of the 2016 class. Austin Hergott, quarterback from Fort Thomas, Kentucky (Highlands HS) recently verbally committed to CMU.
"They're taking a chance on me with my lack of varsity experience," Hergott said to Hustle Belt. "The coaches were great. I really bought into what they were saying and I think I'm a perfect fit for them as they are for me."
There's not much out there on the internet about Hergott. There's yet to be a 247Sports profile on him, but his Hudl page lists Hergott as a 6-foot-4, 220-pound prospect with a 40-time of 5.21 seconds.
His older brother, Brandon Hergott, was a wide receiver for the Cincinnati Bearcats last year but has since left the program.
"My film and stats don't do my capabilities justice," Hergott added. "I've put in a lot of work this offseason, focusing on my footwork which has improved my accuracy. I've always had the arm strength, but now that I can utilize my lower body, it's been propelling me heading into my senior year." Hergott also added that he has been working a lot at reading defensive schemes and trying to be a more well-rounded quarterback.
Hergott seems like he's always anxious to improve, so check out what he has to build off of in these highlights, courtesy of Hudl:
