The 6-foot, 180-pound defensive back is ranked the nation's No. 38 overall prospect and No. 3 safety, putting him within striking distance of eventually earning his fifth star.
On Friday, Heyward announced he was down to a top six of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, Ohio State and Tennessee:
Heyward had previously announced a top 12, but has since eliminated Central Florida, LSU, Miami, Oklahoma, Oregon and Texas A&M.
As a sophomore, the Rockledge star registered 35 tackles and three interceptions.
There's still a long way to go in the coveted defensive back's recruitment.
But the battle is down to six.
