Earl Heyman's senior season is over, but his team did make the playoffs. "We are out of the playoffs now. We lost in the first round," said the Kentucky native in a recent interview with CUTigers.com.

The Ballard High star played both ways this season and finished with 16 sacks on defense. "It was hard. I was out there on about every play. I played both ways and also played on almost every special teams play," said Heyman.

On the recruiting front, the hometown team has the current lead for the prize recruit. "Louisville is my leader," Heyman added.

When asked to rate his favorites, the talented defensive lineman said, "I would rate Louisville a 9. I would rate Kentucky and Clemson a 8. I would rate South Carolina and Nebraska a 5."

"I have already scheduled an official visit to Indiana for the 10th of December. I'm also planning to setup an official visit to Clemson. I will probably take one to South Carolina and Nebraska and possibly Boston College. I don't need to take officials to the Louisville or Kentucky because I have already seen them."

The teams that get an official visit will have a chance to make an impression before Heyman makes his final decision. "I want to wait until after my visits to make a decision," stated Heyman.

Louisville: "They are the hometown school. They love me here. I was born and raised here."

Kentucky: "They are the state school. I have always liked Kentucky. Even though they haven't had the best year. I like their defensive line coach."

Clemson: "I really like coach Bowden. When I went down to Owensboro all they were all talking about was Justin Miller. It would be a chance to get away from home. I wouldn't rule out an out of state school."

The talented athlete will be trading the field for the court now that his season is over. "Now that the season is over I will be playing basketball. We just had our first scrimmage. I play power forward."
