U of L looking "strong" for Heyman

Louisville Ballard defensive end Earl Heyman made another unofficial visit to the hometown Cardinals this past Friday for the game against South Florida.

"They play hard," said Heyman who also visited U of L for the teams season opener against in-state rival Kentucky. "They are a little better than I thought they would be this year."

Heyman's Friday night was opened up due to Ballard's game against Eastern being held on the previous day. Heyman continued his dominant line play against Eastern, recording 5 sacks in the 34-13 win.

Following the Cardinals 41-9 victory, Heyman spent a few minutes visiting with Louisville assistant head coach Greg Nord, discussing the just finished game and more.

"He invited me to be apart of it," Heyman said of his discussion with Coach Nord. "I told him maybe."

While the 6-foot-4, 240-pound lineman has yet to schedule any official visits, he is eyeing a few schools that he may trip to.

"I'm thinking of taking visits to Clemson, USC, Michigan and Michigan State," said Heyman who was a 1st team All-State selection as a junior. "I don't think that I need to take [an official visit] to Louisville because I've seen it a lot already."

While he may or may not eventually make an official visit to U of L, Bobby Petrino's program has impressed Heyman and appear to be the frontrunners right now.

"They are looking pretty strong," Heyman explained of Louisville's recruiting efforts. "I'm still going to wait until the season is over before deciding."

Ballard's regular season comes to an end this Friday when they host Trinity.
