Herbst, a senior, doesn't have teammate Pat Stover's physicality or power, but he's a lefthanded hitter with more speed and a better track record for hitting. Herbst is 6 feet and 183 pounds and is an excellent athlete. He's dealt with a sore hamstring this year, but has shown plus speed in the past, running a 6.6-second 60-yard dash on scout day. Herbst is a solid defender with the above-average arm needed for right field, though he could fill in in center. Herbst has a compact lefthanded swing with gap power. He gets pull happy, as he struggles to go the other way, but has some bat speed and stays on breaking balls.
