Big-Time DB Plans UM Visit

Brandon Heath is tired of waiting. He's ready to get his senior season under way.

"We didn't play a Kickoff Classic and then our opener against Boca Raton got rained out because of the Hurricane," Heath said. "We haven't played in a real game since our spring game against Glades Central. I'm tired of waiting. We're all ready to get things rollin. It's going down this week."

Brandon Heath and his Palm Beach Lakes teammates will play host to rival Suncoast on Friday night.

"It'll be fun," he said. "I'm going both ways. I grew up with Damien (Berry), that's my boy. He had a good game last week. Plus, DeAndre (Morgan) is capable of doing some big things. They moved him to free safety so I'm sure I'll be seeing him in double coverage and things like that."

Heath, 6-1 and 180 pounds, spent time camping at Miami and West Virginia this past summer.

"Miami was Miami," he said. "They had a lot of great athletes and a lot of competition. I enjoyed that. The coaches are real cool with ya. West Virginia was crazy though. I loved ot. Everyone showed me a good time and it was only the summer. They said wait till school starts and things really kick in. (Former teammates) Jarrett Brown and Jatavious Best are there now and they're both excited."

Because of that trip to Morgantown, Heath said the Mountaineers would probably be the favorite if he had to pick one right now.

"They're at the top but I'm still looking at Miami, Florida, Louisville, and now Florida State is climbing back in there," he said. "I gotta start setting up some of my visits but that's who they'll be right there."

Heath, who carries a 720 SAT score, said he'll be watching Monday Night Football closely next week.

"I wanted to go up there for the game but I can't make it," he said. "They're both recruiting me hard and it'll be fun to watch."

While West Virginia is the current favorite, the Hurricanes are clearly in position to make a run at Heath.

"That's big time," he said. "Miami produces. They put people into the league. They're very successful and I like the players and coaches. Plus, it's close. They haven't sent an offer yet though. I did good at their camp and everything and thought it was cool but I guess they're waiting to see what happens."
