Junior TE Mike Heuerman (6-4 215) of Naples, FL has strong interest in USC and plans to visit the school near the end of February.
USC is one of his offers along with Notre Dame, Purdue and Miami. He’s also hearing from Clemson, LSU, Florida, Alabama, Louisville and Boston College. He’s not hearing that much from Clemson but wants to visit there as well when he’s in the state.
Heuerman said he’s kept in touch with USC recruiters GA Mangus and Shawn Elliott and his anxious to get a closer look at the program. "It’s going to be good to get up there and see the campus,” he said. Heuerman’s coach was a college teammate of Elliott’s and they remain close friends. And Heuerman said he’s good friends with USC commitment Jordan Diggs.
He visited Miami last weekend and also has visited Florida, Florida State and Ohio State where his brother is a tight end. He’s going to visit Columbus again in February. Heuerman said he has no favorite at this point and wants to make his decision in the spring.
He had a shoulder injury last season that limited him to six games. He had 24 catches for 345 yards and 4 touchdowns.
