No Hurricanes were harmed in the filming of this video.
This is the only thing I know for sure after watching this video starring Kai-Leon Herbert: he has decided he will go to Michigan.
Herbert is a four-star offensive tackle prospect from Plantation-American Heritage. He was also considering Miami and Florida, but will spend his college career out-of-state.
OK. Now that’s out of the way, and we can get to this:
Bleacher Report, the outlet that brought you a player announcing his commitment while skydiving, is now decidedly in the business of making short films to announce commits. This one might be even crazier than Ole Miss Skydiver. Depending on your view of zombies, it might be more dangerous.
Let’s go through the synopsis:
A bloodied Herbert — who, you’d have to guess, is a Walking Dead fan — ditches undead fans of Rutgers, Iowa, Michigan State and Penn State (showing a strong lower base as he drives that gate shut). He runs into the woods, where he beats the hell out Rutgers (he’ll fit into the Big Ten just fine!) and shoves aside a puny Ohio State (Jim Harbaugh-approved scene, no doubt) and shakes off zombie Wisconsin’s shoestring tackle with a well-placed stomp (shades of Ndamukong Suh).
But look out! Michigan State, Iowa and Penn State made it to the woods, and they’re closing. He form-tackles the Nittany Lion and takes out the Hawkeye with a push-and-pull combo never seen before (knee-to-tree branch). An untimely stumble leaves him on his back, but never fear: he clocks Michigan State with a brick that just happens to be lying in the woods (yeah, Harbaugh definitely approved this script).
If you picked up clues from the Big Ten flavor of the video, you weren’t surprised to see his next move: he rips open his shirt to reveal a Michigan shirt, drops a “Go Blue” on us (the only dialogue in the video) and leaves the forest.
Zombie Big Ten may have its revenge, leaving Harbaugh to … oh God, Harbaugh’s going to become a zombie just to one-up the rest of the conference, isn’t he? This is what you’ve wrought, Michigan.
