Scouting Report on Ricky Heimuli

How we scouted: Film footage, In-person visits, Game setting, Campby Barry Every - 08/26/2009
  • SpeedDivision I Player
  • SizeBlue Chip
  • StrengthBlue Chip
  • AgilityDivision I Player
  • Lateral PursuitDivision I Player
On the Hoof: Extremely well-proportioned and thick body structure.
Needs Improvement: Really only has one move and will need to work on using some other techniques. Heimuli is also a tad stiff and needs to work on improving flexibility. He also needs to be more consistent with pad level.
Most Impressive: His bull-rush may be the best in the country. He is very strong and will not be intimidated by anyone. Heimuli is a headhunter and one of the toughest and meanest competitors in the country.
Conclusion: Has the size and toughness to see some playing time as a freshman. But he will need to add some more moves to his arsenal before he can become an every-down defensive player. He also may be used early in short-yardage situations because he gets a tremendous push off the snap of the all.

Barry Every is a Football Recruiting Analyst for He has worked in the recruiting offices for Mark Richt at the University of Georgia, Bobby Bowden at Florida State University and Mack Brown at the University of North Carolina
