Brian Burns visited UGA Saturday for the Alabama game, and despite the bad weather, he enjoyed his time on campus.
Burns, a 4-star outside linebacker from American Heritage High School (Fla.), told the AJC’s DawgNation.com shortly after his trip that he has three co-leaders.
“It’s tied right now between my top three of Georgia, Alabama and Florida,” Burns said.
The 6-foot-5, 215-pounder, who is believed to be UGA’s biggest priority at outside linebacker, said his top three schools have the same thing in common.
“They all use their defensive ends and outside linebackers how I want to be used at the next level,” he said.
Specifically at UGA, Burns had a chance to speak with UGA linebackers coach Kevin Sherrer before Saturday’s game . The coach wanted him to pay close attention to how linebacker Leonard Floyd played in the Bulldogs’ defense.
Burns is very close with Floyd, as well as running back Sony Michel and wide receiver/returner Isaiah Mckenzie, who were teammates with Burns at American Heritage.
The foursome had a chance to hang out after the game, though the 38-10 loss to Alabama wasn’t a big part of the conversation.
“We didn’t talk about the game much at all. We were just hanging out like back in the old days and getting something to eat,” Burns said.
The Army All-American has not set his official visit dates yet, but said he plans on taking one to his top five schools which are UGA, Alabama, Florida, LSU and Florida State.
Burns says he wants to commit soon, but he still doesn’t have a date set.
