Emerging 2013 QB Ryan Burns

Emerging 2013 QB Ryan Burns

2013 quarterback Ryan Burns of Stone Bridge High (Va.) talks about what he expects of himself, who he compares himself to, and camps on his list to attend.

Ryan Burns, a 2013 quarterback from Stone Bridge High (Va.), is one to keep an eye on. He is a fan of Stanford's Andrew Luck. "I like Luck and I like Stanford, of course. Over the past year I really have liked Stanford. I like their academics, and they made a great program."

Burns was not even a starting quarterback for Stone Bridge last year, yet his performance at a Boston College summer camp earned him an early verbal offer from the Eagles. He recently tested his arm at NC State, Rutgers, West Virginia and Maryland camps.

"They seemed interested when I was down there, but I am not hearing much from them at this point."

His most recent camp invitation came from Penn State, a school that sits high on his list in addition to Stanford.

"Penn State, that one I am most interested in and they sent me a camp letter. I don't know much about them except what I hear about how great it is, so I want to check it out. But I am not trying to focus too much on camps. I am not doing too many camps this year. I want to rebuild this year and concentrate on that."

When asked what his individual goals are for next season, he replied, "I don't concentrate on individual, more team goals. We are losing a lot of seniors and a great coach and I want to get a state championship."

As far as factors that will contribute to his college decision, he says, distance is not one. "I have moved around a lot. It's just not as important to stay close to home. I want the best school I can get the best opportunity at."

Burns who carries a 4.0 is not only referring to an opportunity on the field, but also in the classroom. "Academics are important. I have a 4.0 now. My favorite class is math, algebra."
