Gators pulling ahead for Heath

One of the top players in the entire country is West Palm Beach (Fla.) Palm Beach Lakes defensive back/wide receiver Brandon Heath. He already boasts three offers and one school in particular has pulled a slight lead for his services.
"I'm really starting to like Florida more and more," Heath said. "They are recruiting me harder than anybody. They call my coach everyday and check up on me, sometimes even coach Meyer himself calls. I call coach Doc Holliday on a regular basis just to keep in touch with him. Right now they are my No. 1 school."
The 6-foot, 175-pound Heath attended the NIKE camp in Miami as a sophomore where he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.57 seconds and had a 30-inch vertical jump.
"I still have the same offers, but Oklahoma has started calling my coach some and asking for film and stuff," Heath said. "Of course Florida State and Miami and all of them are still sending me a lot of mail and calling my coach and all, but they haven't offered yet."
Heath plans to make a return trip to the NIKE camp in April and he stated that he would also be attending camps at West Virginia and Florida.
"I am still going to take my time and take my official visits, but I'm liking Florida a lot," Heath said. "I am going to be going to junior day up there in about a month and I am looking forward to being able to get to meet coach Meyer and coach Holliday and all of those guys."
The versatile Heath could project as a wide receiver or safety on the next level, but he has a preference on where he'd like to end up.
"I will play either position in college, but I prefer defensive back," Heath said. "I compare myself to Sean Taylor because of the way I play. When you're out there playing football you have got to be hungry. My main thing is that I just like to make plays. No matter where I'm at I can make plays. When I'm on defense I love to hit and I love to put my nose on the ball and when I'm on offense I am just able to make people miss."
