ITV Confirmed: Heyman to Louisville

Louisville Ballard defensive end confirmed to ITV that he has decided to stay home and play for Bobby Petrino's Cardinals.

It's not a surprise, but great news none the less as Louisville Ballard's Earl Heyman committed to Louisville on Monday afternoon.

"I committed today," Heyman told ITV. "I told Coach Nord and he gave me a big hug."

Heyman, who played in the U.S. Army All-American game in San Antonio over the weekend, was hosted by George Stripling and was joined by fellow U of L commit JuJuan Spillman on his visit.

"I liked it a was a great visit," continued Heyman. "I like Louisville a lot, so I decided to go ahead and do it."

Heyman did inform that he does intend to take two remaining official visits.

"I'll probably still go take my Boston College and Kentucky visits," said Heyman, who was recently voted by the Kentucky High School Coaches as Player of the Year.

Any chance the 6-foot-4, 240-pound defensive end could be swayed to change his decision?

"No way," Heyman said.

Heyman, who also plays basketball at Ballard, says that it is still undetermined if he'll see action as a true freshman or not.

"I don't know about that yet," continued Heyman. "We'll see this summer when practice starts. I know that I need to keep lifting weights and working out."
