Might Jordan Jenkins be a modern day “Dawgstradamus?”
DawgNation sure hopes so. Jenkins, now on his way to the NFL, found the time on Sunday to send a hopeful tweet in the direction of five-star defensive end/linebacker hybrid Brian Burns.
@Fire_Burns99 go ahead and tell the world that you're gonna be a dawg man. Ain't nothing like rocking those silver britches !

The Plantation, Fla., resident also retweeted his remark.
Burns, a U.S. Army All-American, is down to UGA, Florida and Florida State as his finalists. That’s also the order in which he took his official visits to each of those programs over the last three weeks.
What’s a good player parallel for Burns? Think Leonard Floyd. The 6-foot-5, 215-pounder is rated as the nation’s No. 5 weak-side defensive end and the No. 51 player overall. He can play in the teeth or on the edges of a defense.
If that wasn’t enough, Floyd then also shared a message of encouragement for Burns to join the program.
@Fire_Burns99 it would be dope to see you in that red and black#Dawgs on the come up

The highlight film for Burns is — forgive the expression — just plain bonkers.
