Three-star defensive end Earl Heyman out of Louisville (Ken.) Ballard has just started setting up visits with some of his top schools.
Right now Heyman has Indiana scheduled for Dec. 10, but also mentioned that he plans on taking visits to Clemson and Southern Cal, probably in January.
“I’m planning on taking all five of the visits. Nebraska and Boston College will probably be the last two trips.”

This season Heyman has helped Ballard to a 9-4 record and a chance in the playoffs as he recorded 85 tackles and 15 sacks.
“It’s harder when you’re getting double teamed and that effects your stat sheet, but we had a bunch of young guys and I wasn’t disappointed at all with this season.”
A couple of games this year, the 6-foot-3, 260-pounder broke out. One game he recorded 25 tackles, 11 for loss and four sacks, while in another he had 15 tackles and four sacks.
So who’s Heyman favoring?
"Right now it's Louisville and Kentucky, but I won’t make official visits to either since they are in my backyard," he said. “They are hometown favorites, they both have always been in my heart. I’ve already seen them so I don't need to waste an official, but they’re still my favorites.”
Heyman plans to announce his decision sometime near or after the US Army All-American game on Jan. 15.
