Major Burns was committed to a major Power 5 program last week. He abruptly de-committed from his hometown LSU Tigers.
The 4-star prospect then showed up in Athens for his final official visit prior to the early signing period.
If that sounds like a familiar script, then it should.
Major Burns is now committed to Georgia. That’s the same path that recent commitment Devin Willock also took while choosing Georgia.
The nation’s No. 12 safety (per the 247Sports Composite ratings) tweeted out on Tuesday that he was going to be a Bulldog.

Burns becomes the 16th public commitment for Georgia for the 2020 class.
When he de-committed from LSU last week, he did so with a most uncommon tweet. It certainly did not tread like the typical thought in which a recruit decides to reopen their recruiting.

The 6-foot-2, 176-pound senior plays out of Madison Prep Academy in Baton Rouge. He is the second commitment to Georgia from Louisiana in this class. Eric Reed, another 4-star safety from Shreveport, is another possibility for the 2020 class.
He is now the ninth-highest rated commitment in the 2020 class for the Bulldogs. He will sign his papers at 9:30 a.m. from Madison Prep Academy. Burns will also enroll early with this class in January.
The Bulldogs went more than 110 days this fall between the commitments of 4-star Lousiana OL Sedrick Van Pran and Willock. The decision from Burns now makes it the second in three days for the 2020 class.
The Bulldogs remain at No. 6 nationally in the 247Sports Team Composite ratings for the 2020 cycle. That said, there are a lot of major targets that are expected to sign and announce their decisions beginning with the first day of the early signing period on Dec. 18 through Jan. 4.
