Dexter Heyman back to work

With the protective boot now removed from his once broken right foot, four-star prospect Dexter Heyman is focused on getting back up to speed.

Dexter Heyman is ready to get back to work.

The four-star prospect has been sidelined since injuring his foot playing power forward for the Louisville Male High School basketball team last winter. The protective boot that he has worn for months is now gone and the 6-foot-3, 210-pound defensive end/linebacker prospect is preparing for a summer of strength and speed work.

"I'd say it's about 70 percent right now," he said of recovering right foot. "I'm going to my brother Eric's in North Carolina to work out this summer. That's all that I am focusing on right now."

While visiting his brother Eric - a former Male High All-State performer that went on to become an All-Conference defensive back at Centre College - Dexter also has plans to check out some of the area schools.

"Clemson has started sending me some things, so I'm planning on visiting them and probably everybody else in the North Carolina area," Heyman told

In addition to Clemson, Heyman listed Alabama, Michigan State and Tennessee as a few of the others that are expressing an interest. His current list of offers is made up of Cincinnati, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisville and Northwestern.

"The interest keeps rising for me," Heyman said. "I know that I'll be getting more offers as well, so that's why I'm focusing on working out right now."

With more offers sure to arrive throughout the summer months and during his senior season, the Midwest Top 100 member doesn't appear to be in a hurry to make his college choice.

"If I feel really comfortable somewhere then I would probably go ahead and commit, but I'm just not sure right now," Heyman explained.
