High school football players can't just announce where they'll play in college at a press conference anymore. No, they have to have an elaborate video announcement, like 4-star recruit Kai-Leon Herbert.

Herbert, an offensive tackle from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, announced that he would attend the University of Michigan in the fall of 2017 in a video fashioned after the TV show 'The Walking Dead,' which you can see above. The video was released via Bleacher Report.

According to ESPN, Herbert had interest from schools in his home state of Florida, like the University of Florida and Miami, but elected to go to the University of Michigan to play under head coach Jim Harbaugh.

Herbert was the 106th ranked prospect in the 2017 class, according to ESPN. He's the ninth player from the ESPN 300 to commit to the University of Michigan's 2017 class.

The University of Michigan is tied for third with LSU and Oklahoma for the most ESPN 300 commitments for the class of 2017 with nine. The University of Michigan's arch rival, Ohio State, has eleven.
