Palm Beach Lakes (Fla.) High School safety Brandon Heath is taking his decision down to the wire. The three-star prospect, who has narrowed his choices down to just three, will announce his decision on Wednesday, National Signing Day.

"It's down to just three," Heath told prior to his trip to Knoxville. "It'll be Louisville, West Virginia or Tennessee on Wednesday."

Last week each of his favorites made their final in-home visits, with Louisville claiming the last spot.

"All three of the them came by last week," said Heath. "Coach Levine and Coach Whitt from Louisville came by Thursday night."

Heath, who has also visited Rutgers, Louisville and West Virginia, said his upcoming decision is a difficult one and he had positive things to say about each program still under consideration.

Louisville: "The program there is really on the rise. They are going to keep getting better. They have some great players and coaches there."

Tennessee: "It's the SEC. It's also one of the top teams and is a top 25 program every year."

West Virginia: "It's a good fit because of the style of defense they run up there. No other school in the country runs that type of defense."

As a senior Heath recorded 72 tackles, including 3 for a loss and two sacks, as well as notching 8 interceptions. Offensively, the 6-foot-1, 195-pounder pulled 32 receptions for 520 yards and 10 touchdowns.

He was named Class 6A First Team All-State by the Florida Sports Writers Association.
