Burgess-Becker adds more
Shawn Burgess-Becker now has offers from Alabama, Miami, Cincinnati, Lafayette, and most recently, LSU. The Tigers offered the sophomore standout Saturday during a phone call with Defensive Backs Coach Corey Raymond. "It's a pretty good feeling. (Coach Raymond) said LSU would love to offer me and have me come visit their campus this summer, so I'm looking forward to doing that," Burgess-Becker said. "They're a very good defensive team, they always compete, and there's a great history behind them." The 6-foot-2, 190-pound athlete plays wide receiver and safety and could play either at the next level. He grew up loving the Hurricanes and is excited to have an offer from the hometown team. "They have a pretty good program over there. I like that school a lot. It's my hometown, so I'm more comfortable over here," he said. "(I like) that they play the best players. It doesn't matter if you're a freshman. If you're a freshman and you're one of the best players, you'll play. Some teams don't do that. That's another thing I like about Miami. Al Golden is a really good coach. He has a lot of respect for his players, he treats them just like family." Burgess-Becker started his recruitment off with a bang by picking up an offer from the national champion Crimson Tide. He hopes to get on campus this summer and get a closer look at the Alabama program. "It kind of is crazy to get Alabama as a first offer, the number one school in the nation," he said. "I haven't been over there yet, so I don't really know too much yet. I just know that they're very good football program." Cincinnati has also offered the talented sophomore. He said he doesn't know too much about the Bearcats yet, but he likes Offensive Coordinator Eddie Gran, who extended him the offer. The Monarch standout doesn't plan to make his decision until Signing Day 2015, so he has plenty of time to think about what is important to him in choosing a program. He has a few things in mind already. "I want coaches that are going to push me and make me better, a good football team, just simple things that will make me a better player," he said. Burgess-Becker plans to visit several programs this summer with his high school coach. The trips are all up in the air right now, but he said he hopes to camp at Tennessee and Florida State among others.
