Stats: (JR) 13 tackles

Analysis: Keith is by far one of the most underrated DE prospects that Michigan has been able to pick up. He plays with a high-motor.  Once the ball is snapped he is quick to get in the face of the lineman.  He keeps is eyes in the backfield as he gets off his blocks. This allows him to be able to adjust to the ball carrier and helps place him in great positions to make quick, efficient tackles. Keith has great blocking ability on the offensive side of the ball. His aggressive play and quick feet will make him a great TE prospect.  Look for Heitzman to red shirt his first year unless he stands out at TE.  With Michigan starting its transition back to the pro-style they are going to need some TEs to stand out and make some plays next season.
