Former Bulls keeper Tony Pennock, now Academy Director at Hull, has told the local press he is pleased to have got Jarrod Bowen to the Tigers.
He told the Hull Daily Mail: "Jarrod showed glimpses of what he's capable of last year, he took to Conference football well. It's a physical league but that didn't trouble him. He can play out wide, he can play in the hole, he's got a good left foot and he's got a trick in him as well.
"He's not played a lot of academy football so he's rough, ready and a little bit raw, but that innocence he brings is no bad thing. He's a boy who is 100 per cent committed and he's excited by this challenge. I'm sure he'll do well here."
"I've known about Jarrod for some time. Peter Beadle, the youth team coach at Hereford, was my manager at Newport County so I'd always keep in touch. Hereford had a good under-18s side last year and reached the fifth round of the FA Youth Cup before losing to Manchester City.
"It was back in February that they had to disband the youth set-up there and put the word out to clubs that they'd be letting a number of boys go. It was then that Jarrod actually got his chance in the first team with a few players leaving and I saw him play against Alfreton on Easter Monday. He scored and he was probably unlucky not to get one or two more."
"We weren't the only ones interested in Jarrod. There was a number of clubs with Category One academies. But when he came up to meet with Steve Bruce and had a look around, we managed to persuade him to join us."
