The 6-foot-10 junior from Platteview High in Springfield, Nebraska previously glowed about his February viewing of the Gophers in Williams Arena. Brady Heiman is still high on the Gopher program.
“I have nothing but good things to say about the coaches at the University of Minnesota,” Heiman said. “I talk to assistant Ben Johnson the most and he’s a great guy. They have a good young head coach in Richard Pitino and you got to believe they are a program on the rise.”
The recruitment for Heiman is still growing but it won’t hit it’s high point until this spring/summer when schools get out to see him against better competition.
“I hear from South Dakota, Minnesota, Nebraska, Wichita State, and Nebraska-Omaha pretty regularly,” Brady said.
Brady is playing with the Omaha Crusaders on the Adidas Uprising Tour as well as the Sanford Pentagon Tournament Series.
“For the OSA Crusaders Adidas team, the eam goal is to make it to South Carolina for the championships,” Heiman explained. “My individual goal is to pick up some high division one offers.
“AAU is looking like its gonna be fun. The team got a big makeover with six new players. We are still learning to play together. I think we play Howard Pulley this weekend so that will be a good test point for the summer.”
Brady will have more scholarship options soon based on the high effort level he plays with around the basket. What is Brady looking for in a school?
“First off, I just want to be comfortable with the coaches and players,” said Heiman.. “Then, look at academics and what they have to offer and what I want to go into.”
Brady is coming off a strong junior season but he didn’t like the way state went for his team.
"We ended up losing in the first round of state,” Brady said. “We were playing really well heading into state then kind of laid an egg in that game.”
