Jordan Burch now has just five schools on his mind. The 5-star DE from The Hammond School (Columbia, SC) tweeted out his top five on Monday evening. It will no doubt draw a lot of eyes.
It should not be seen as a big surprise that Georgia did slide in there for the nation’s No. 2 overall prospect for 2020 on the 247Sports Composite ratings.
Burch is one of the more intriguing prospects in this class. He lives in the same city that the South Carolina Gamecocks call their home. The quarterback of his high school team is even the son of Carolina head coach Will Muschamp, too.
Those crystal balls point that he will choose Clemson. But yet he’s taken far more trips to UGA this year than he’s been to check out the Tigers.
He also opts not to do any media regarding his recruiting process either. That’s been a staple throughout his recruiting journey.
This top 5 release here only adds to the intrigue of what he might be thinking.
If Burch does wind up signing with the Tigers, it will complete an epic haul. Burch could potentially be the seventh 5-star in their 2020 class. That’s impressive, but he would also be the fourth 5-star DL signee and the fifth prospect rated among the nation’s top 100 recruits for their defensive line, too.
