Heitzman is a decent athlete who won’t wow you in any particular way, but he’s not especially slow or awkward, either. He held offers from lower level Big Ten schools and a bunch of MAC-level programs, and that seems just about right.
On National Signing Day, Brady Hoke talked about Heitzman and stated that the coaches thought he could grow into a tackle. I’m assuming he was talking about the “5-tech defensive tackle,” which is confusing because it’s more of a traditional defensive end position. A 237-pound kid probably won’t be able to stand up against offensive tackles, let alone double-teams from the tackle and a tight end. On the defensive line, he’s probably the least ready to play as a freshman.
