Reggie Herring is hands down one of the most talented linebackers to play at Florida State University. Three is the magic number? Herring was a 3-year starting linebacker where he was the leading tackler in each of his final three seasons. His 452 total tackles in his career ranks him third all-time for tackles in FSU history and during his senior season he ranked third all-time on the single-season tackle list as well.
