U of L battling Florida schools for athlete

<b>Brandon Heath</b> of Palm Beach Lakes High School in Florida lists Louisville, along with Florida and Miami as his current favorites.

Brandon Heath is the type of prospect that coaches love. At 6-foot-1, 195-pounds he already has great size and he is equally effective playing receiver or safety.

"I don't like to say a certain prospect is a can't miss player but Heath is darn close," wrote FloridaKids columnist Charles Fishbein. "He can make an impact on offense or defense in college."

He displayed his talent in great fashion as a junior when he totaled 32 catches for 580 yards and five touchdowns. Defensively he recorded 32 tackles and three interceptions.

So, it's no surprise that Heath has already had multiple scholarship offers extended his way.

According to Heath, Florida, Kansas, Louisville, Minnesota, NC State, West Virginia and Rutgers have already offered.

"Minnesota and Kansas just offered last Thursday," Heath added.

However despite the continued mailings from numeous programs, Heath was quick to point out that a few schools have climbed to the top of his list.

"Florida, Louisville and then Miami," said Heath, who attended Miami's Junior Day. "I like the atmosphere at Florida and I like how Louisville puts points on the board."

Heath also said that he receives frequent mail from the Cardinals coaching staff and that he expects a visit in the future.

I get stuff from Coach Levine a lot," Heath said. "He said that he's going to come down here later this spring."

Tennessee, Georgia and Florida State are among those also showing considerable interest.
