The Kansas football program picked up a commitment in the Class of 2023 from 3-star defensive end Blake Herold on Wednesday night.

Herold, who hails from Shenandoah, Iowa, attended KU’s Friday Night Lights camp in late June and returned on Tuesday for an unofficial visit.

A linebacker throughout much of his prep career, Herold is expected to move to the defensive end this season. That’s where he projects in college, with the idea that his speed and mobility will serve him well in the future. According to 247Sports, Herold had 73 tackles, including 14.5 for loss, last season.
