Brian Burns is a highly athletic defensive back from Upper Marlboro, Md., that just picked up his first offer from Temple University and is hoping to score more as he attends camps over the next month.

Brian Burns, a 5-foot-11, 162-pound cornerback from Riverdale Baptist School now has an offer from Temple, but after speaking to him on Tuesday night we found out that he has great interest in other schools as well.

“I just received an offer from Coach Al Golden yesterday,” Burns said. “I was up there at Temple for camp on Sunday. I performed really well at camp, so afterwards they invited me up to the coaches’ office to get to know me. Then on Monday they called my coach and after we talked to the coaching staff they offered me right there over the phone.”

“I like the entire coaching staff because they were laid back and easy to talk to,” Burns added. “I liked the campus that I did see and would love to go back and see the rest of it again.”

“I’m also been hearing from Maryland and camped there. Richmond, Delaware, Towson, Villanova, Rutgers and some other schools have been recruiting me as well. Richmond, Towson and Temple really stand out to me. I’m going to be camping at Richmond and Towson very soon. Maryland obviously stands out as well.”

“I loved the atmosphere at Maryland and it’s very close to home, so my family could come watch me play if I went there,” Burns explained. “I also really liked the coaches because they’re really cool guys. Coach Brown and Coach Franklin made me feel right at home and that was great.”

As a junior, Burns had seven interceptions and 40 tackles. As a sophomore, he had six interceptions and 39 tackles.

He has been timed at 4.4 in the 40-yard dash, 4.10 in the short shuttle and boasts a 34-inch vertical leap.
