Mount Dora TE/DE Bruce Heggie, who was bothered by injuries for most of his senior season this year, finally landed his first college scholarship offer from Florida A&M.
Heggie, 6-4/240, missed most of the first two months of the season with a nagging groin injury, didn't really get back to full speed until early October.
Heading into the season, Heggie was one of the top prospects in the Orlando area, but he's now a prime example of what injuries can do to college expectations. He is still ranked No. 69 inthe Sentinel's Central Florida Top 100.
He wanted to play at Florida State. His father, Bruce Sr., played in Tallahassee. Unfortunately, that likely won't be the case for the younger Heggie. For now he just wants to play football, somewhere.
Heggie will visit FAMU Jan. 30 and until then, he'll be eagerly awaiting more possibilities. Numerous schools want him to enroll and walk on, but that's not an option.
"I just wanna play ball on scholarship," Heggie said via text on Wednesday. "I don't care where."Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
