Boston College In The Hunt
Springfield small forward Marcus Heard is down to three schools and he'll be ready to make a college decision soon. He likes DePaul, Southern Illinois and Boston College.
He visited Southern Illinois over the weekend. He was on his official visit to DePaul when Sammy Mejia committed. "This weekend I go to Boston College," Heard said. "I'll probably make my decision sometime after that."
Heard says gauging a leader is tough right now because he's not done with the process. "Well, I can't put anybody in the lead because I haven't finished my visits."
Recently, he did eliminate a few schools. "It was those three and Xavier and Nebraska. Nebraska didn't think I was that serious about them. I was kind of a backup recruit for Xavier. I had to let them go."
Heard says that if there's pressure to stay in-state he's not feeling it.
