Summary:

Kevin Hervey is a tough, physical, high-motor combo forward that has been very productive for Texas-Arlington in his past two seasons.  He has been instrumental in his team’s success, as he has provided them with much needed consistency as a scorer and rebounder when he is on the floor.​

There may be concerns about how well his knee may hold up moving forward, as he had to deal with injuries over the years.  Regardless, Hervey had a solid senior season this year, and he is an athletic, skilled combo forward that could end up being a second round pick in 2018.
