After a strong junior regular season in 2012, Logan Burns went down with a knee injury in round one of the playoffs. It caused him to miss camps, combines, and spring practice, but he is back in 2013...

Logan Burns worked hard to get back where he needed to be in 2013.

In the first round of the playoffs last season, Burns tore his ACL and after surgery, he was out until the summer of 2013.

He was not able to get out and showcase his skills at the different camps and combines, but he kept working out, training with IFM (In Full Motion), and doing all he could to become that recruit he knew he could be.

The hard work and dedication is paying off.

"I am back," Burns said. "I was out for a while and I had to stay patient, but I am back now."

The 5-foot-11, 170 pound cornerback out of is happy with his play so far this season.

"I am making more plays at wide receiver because I am not really being tested at corner, but I am playing well.

"I like to play press coverage and I think I have done well when given the chance this season. I have shown my ball skills too."

He just hopes coaches are recognizing his talents.

Burns would have hit the camp and combine circuit hard in the spring and summer, but due to his injury, he couldn't, so he knows now is his time.

One school has stepped up an offered and more and showing interest.

"I have an offer from Youngstown State now," said Burns. "I am also hearing from Vanderbilt, Purdue, Tennessee-Martin, and Memphis."

The senior out of Nashville (Tenn.) Hillsboro does not know much about Youngstown State yet, but he is happy with any offer.

There are two offers he'd really like to have, "Tennessee and Vanderbilt are the offers I really want," said Burns.
