University of Louisville head coach Scott Satterfield has strengthened the staff in his recruiting room. John Herron has been named Recruiting Coordinator and Clay Colvin has been elevated to Recruiting Coordinator for Creative Media for the Cardinals.
“We are excited to have the opportunity to bolster our recruiting efforts,” Satterfield said in a prepared release. “John did some tremendous things at Florida and has ACC experience working at Florida State. John is highly organized, knowledgeable and is an outstanding person. We are thrilled to welcome John to our Louisville staff. Clay has done excellent work since joining our staff last season and has picked up a lot of the slack while we continue to fill the needs in our recruiting department.”
More from the official school release:
Herron joins the Louisville staff from Florida, where he has served in the recruiting department for the last seven years. Most recently, Herron functioned as the Assistant Director of Player Personnel and the Director of Recruiting for the last four seasons before working as the Director of On-Campus Recruiting from 2016-18.
While on the Gators’ staff, Herron organized recruiting events for prospective student-athletes and worked closely with the social media team to enhance social media outreach.
During his time at UF, Herron was influential in adding significant recruits to the roster. During his first season on staff, Herron helped ink the No. 9 ranked recruiting class in the nation, which catapulted the Gators to three New Year’s Six Bowl appearances. Herron also had a hand in signing NFL draft picks: CJ Henderson, Marco Wilson, TJ Slaton, Shaw Davis, KT Toney, James Houston, and Zach Carter.
While with the Gators, he was able to secure the signings of five-star prospects: Jason Marshall, Corey Collier, Lorenzo Lingard, and Justin Shorter.
Prior to serving at Florida, Herron served as the Director of Recruiting and High School Relations at Florida State from 2018-19, where he helped ink the nation’s No. 19 recruiting class.
