Dexter Heyman leaning towards one?

After spending a few weeks visiting family in North Carolina, Louisville Male's Dexter Heyman has returned home and told that a leader has emerged in his recruitment.

After spending a few weeks visiting his brother Eric in North Carolina, three-star prospect Dexter Heyman returned to The Ville last month reenergized and focused on his upcoming senior season at Louisville Male.

"It was great," Heyman said of time in North Carolina. "I went down there to work out, but what I really ended up doing was relaxing and getting refocused on everything. I still worked out some, but everyone needs a vacation every now and then. It was a really good trip for me."

Heyman will visit U of L on Saturday
While most college coaches lost contact with Heyman during his vacation, the 6-foot-3, 210-pound defensive end/linebacker reports that he remained in contact with a few.

"I kept in touch with the coaches that I really wanted to stay in touch with," Heyman told on Friday. "Schools like Louisville, Cincinnati and Tennessee. I've really tried to stay focused on other things for awhile, because the recruiting stuff will take care of itself."

In addition to the hometown Cardinals, Heyman has also collected scholarship offers from Cincinnati, Indiana, Kentucky and Northwestern. Others such as Alabama, Clemson, Michigan, Michigan State and Tennessee have expressed an interest in nation's 33rd-ranked defensive end.

Heyman, who last visited the U of L program for the spring game, will be on hand Saturday night when the Cardinals conduct a public scrimmage.

"To be honest, I'm leaning towards Louisville right now," said Heyman. "It's not something that I'm worried about right now. I'm trying to stay focused on my team and trying to win a state championship."
