"Those are the one's that I like at this point," he continued. "Anything could happen. Especially since I have my senior year to look forward to. I just have to keep my options open right now."

Heyman, a member of's Top 100 Juniors to Watch list, is currently in the process of sending video to college coaches and hopes to attend the U.S. Army All-American combine in January.

The younger brother of Cardinal sophomore defensive lineman Earl Heyman, Dexter isn't sure what role his brother may have on the direction of his football future.

"I don't know if it will play a big role in where I go or not," said Heyman, who has attended each of the Cardinals home games this season. "I think it's more like seeing what it would be like at Louisville. Because of Earl it kind of gives me a heads up on what it would be like if I went to Louisville."
