"At this point, Miami was great and everything, but I'm not ready to commit anywhere before I look at my other options," Heurtelou said. "I want to stay open and take more visits right now."
Rutgers is one of the newer offers for Heurtelou, who grew up an hour away from Piscataway, N.J. The Scarlet Knights remain an unknown, but are going to get a deeper look moving forward with limited depth inside.
"Right now, I think Rutgers is a really good school, good program," Heurtelou said. "It's close to home. I really don't know too much more that they do right now. I have to do more research but I'm going to read more about Rutgers.
Heurtelou said the proximity to home makes it easy should he plan a visit to campus and is attractive to his family. He had plans to visit Rutgers that fell apart and is in the process of rescheduling, he said.
Missouri has been one of the most active schools recruiting Heurtelou and will host him on an official visit Sept. 28 when the Tigers host Arkansas State.
"I'm impressed with their coaches," he said. "I like Missouri a lot. They coach up their linemen and are going to prepare their guys for the NFL. I have a good relationship with their coaches."
At 6-foot-4, 295 pounds, Herutelou projects to play immediately when he makes the jump to college football this spring. His plan is to be committed by the Thanksgiving holidays and ready to go for the spring semester.
