Mike Heuerman
Tight End
6’4″ • 220
Barron Collier High School
Naples, Fla.

Brian Kelly and the Irish managed to snag tight end Mike Heuerman from the clutches of Urban Meyer and Ohio State. The four-star tight end from Barron Collier High School in Naples, Fla., cited tradition and the campus community as reasons for choosing Notre Dame over Ohio State, LSU and several other schools.
Heuerman stands 6-foot-4 and weighs 220 pounds. He is already a talented and dominant blocker with the potential to do even more damage on the outside once he fills out his tall frame. He plays smart and adjusts quickly when blocking.
Heuerman also runs a swift 4.69-second 40-yard dash. That speed coupled with his height will make him a big challenge to cover and a formidable receiving threat.
