Brandon Heath: "This is a big game"

With both Louisville and West Virginia among his favorites, 4-star safety prospect Brandon Heath says he'll be watching the Big East Conference showdown closely.

Earlier this week, 4-star safety prospect Brandon Heath said that West Virginia, U of L's opponent this weekend, was his leader over the Cardinals, as well as Florida, Miami and Tennessee. With offers from all of his favorites, with the exception of Miami, Heath says that he intends to make all of his visits before making a decision.

"I'm going to wait and take all of them," he said.

While he will have watch the Mountaineers up close next weekend when they visit South Florida, Heath told Inside The Ville that he'll be tuning into this weekend's Big East matchup between U of L and WVU.

"Oh yeah, it's a big game," he said. "I'm definitely watching that game and it should be a great one. It'll have a high powered offense going against a really good defense."

With Louisville and West Virginia preparing for what is being billed at the league's game of the year, coaches on both sides are attempting to use the hype of the game to their advantage.

"I got calls from both of them tonight," Heath said on Thursday evening. "Coach Gibbons (WVU) and Coach Levine (U of L) both called. They told me that they are looking forward to the game and that they are ready to go."

Through six games, the 6-foot-1, 195-pound Heath has 26 catches for 412 yards and 7 touchdowns, while also totaling 45 tackles, including 3 for a loss and 2 sacks on defense. He has also recorded four interceptions from his safety position.

"I'm going to be slowed down a little bit," he said about his play this weekend. "I have an ankle sprain, but it's not too bad. It's just a little tender."
