Safeties are a key component to the defense of the pass. Not only do they cover WRs but they also cover TEs while assisting the doubling of outstanding WRs along with providing run support. Brandon Heath is among the best ones in the Southeast region. Therefore, he holds offers from some of the best programs in the country.
Scout had an opportunity to interview Heath and find out his feelings on his first two visits.
His first visit was to Rutgers. The school's proximity to New York City really impressed him along with the number of the Floridians on the squad. The camaraderie of the team both on and off the field left a lasting impression. However, the cold weather hindered him from really exploring the campus.
Heath stated that his visit to Louisville was great. The environment along with the fans love for the Louisville program really impressed him. He stated that "the coaches were great" and the "players were easy to relate to". The practices for the bowl were also another aspect of the visit that led Heath to rate the visit a "9" out of "10". His high school teammate Jeremy Baker committed during their visit to Louisville. But Heath stated that Baker's decision will not effect his decision.
Although Heath still has visits scheduled to Tennessee and West Virginia in
January, he developed a list of three leaders. They are Louisville, Tennessee,
and West Virginia. All of them will need to wait until National Signing Day
for a decision.
