Top juniors make visits

Two of the state's top football junior prospects made unofficial visits with U of L on Sunday

In addition to Rick Pitino hosting future Cardinal Clarence Holloway and four-star junior forward prospect Steve Tchiengang on unofficial visits for his team's 86-71 win over Seton Hall, U of L football head coach Steve Kragthorpe also welcomed a pair of top prospects on Sunday afternoon. Top 100 junior Dexter Heyman of Louisville Male and two-time All-State selection Sam Robey of Louisville Trinity both attended Sunday's basketball game as guests of the Cardinal football program.

Sitting in the end zone near the U of L band and student section, Heyman and Robey were joined by Coach Kragthorpe and U of L defensive coordinator Mike Cassity for the much of the game.

Heyman, who has recovered from a broken foot suffered during basketball practice, currently holds a scholarship offer from Louisville and is drawing heavy interest from Clemson, Kentucky, Michigan, Tennessee and others. Projected as either a linebacker or defensive end in college, Heyman earned 2nd Team All-Combine honors at the recent U.S. Army All-American combine.

In addition to the high interest from U of L, Robey, 6'4, 235-pounds, is also hearing from the likes of Kentucky, where his father was a basketball All-American, Notre Dame, Ohio State and a host of others. A two-time All-State choice for his play along the Trinity offensive line, Robey projects as a tight end on the college level.
