Omoregie Uzzi will visit Georgia this Thursday, he said today.
Burnette Has an Early Leader
"Right now I am being recruited the heaviest by Wake Forest, Connecticut, Duke, Vanderbilt, Virginia and Virginia Tech," Burnette said. "It has really just been a heavy flow of letters from coaches at this point asking for film which I am about to send out here soon and hope to get some positive returns from."
"Camp went really well at Wake Forest and I thought I did really well in the one-on-one drills and showed that I had some speed for a big guy," Burnette explained. "I spent the entire week down there as a former teammate of mine just graduated from Wake Forest and really liked the environment there. I felt very comfortable on campus and am supposed to call the coaches this week to see where I stand in terms of an offer from them because from what I have been told I am pretty close right now. Wake Forest is definitely my top choice at this point and I would really like to go there."
"Connecticut has also been sending me a lot of things and has invited me up for a few visits, but I just have not been able to attend," Burnette stated. "Their head coach (Randy Edsall) came down to my school this year and was a nice guy who was very easy to talk to. I get some handwritten letters from them once in a while and they check in to see how things are going a lot. The staff wants me to take an official there this year."
As a junior, Burnette earned first-team All-City and All-Metro honors as was also a second-team All-State selection. He was also named a member of the Super 22 team by the Baltimore Football Club.
He carries a core GPA of 2.8 and recently scored a 1430 out of 2400 on his SAT, which he will take again this year.
