Herbig was a member of the Stanford Cardinal football team for three seasons. He was recognized as a freshman All-American by ESPN after he played in all 13 of Stanford’s games and started six times at left guard. As a sophomore, he made the switch to right guard, where he started all 13 games and was named to the first team All-Pac-12 Conference.
After making six starts at right guard and one start at right tackle as a junior, Herbig was chosen to the second team of All-Pac-12. This was despite the fact that he’d missed six games due to injury. Herbig made the announcement after his junior season that he would not return for his senior year of college because he intended to enter the 2019 NFL Draft instead.
Herbig’s draft value dropped drastically following a terrible performance at the NFL Scouting Combine, which included a 40-yard sprint time of 5.41 seconds, which was the slowest run of all 260 competitors. Initially, it was anticipated that Herbig would be selected somewhere in the middle of the draft. In the end, he was not taken by any team during the 2019 NFL Draft.
