Burton Still Plans to Visit ND
"I get a lot off mail from them, Burton said. "Coach Alford emails me at least once a week, so we keep a good relationship going I think.
"I'm not going to make a decision until I make a visit Notre Dame. I'm planning on going up there when I visit Michigan this summer if everything works out right. I'm also planning an official visit to Notre Dame on September 11, for the Michigan game."
Even if the Irish staff gets Burton to visit, they'll have their work cut out for them. Clemson has been Burton's leader for several months, and that hasn't changed.
"I'd say that Clemson is still on top and then I'd say everyone from there on is pretty even," Burton said. "It's Clemson, Notre Dame, South Florida, Georgia Tech and Ole Miss.
With scholarship offers from Clemson, Notre Dame, Georgia Tech, Ole Miss, West Virginia, Stanford, South Florida, Purdue, Rutgers, Memphis and Florida International, Burton is has been getting plenty of recruiting attention from college coaches. He enjoys it, but would like to focus on his high school team.
"I just went to South Florida, Florida, Clemson and the last visit was Georgia Tech," Burton explained. "I've just been lifting is about to start. I'm just trying to get ready for our spring game and try to do well and talk to all these coaches that will be down. "
"This is a little less stressful time as far as recruiting. I talk to some coaches now and then and keep the communication going, but you really don't have to go too far out of your way. At this time of year you can kind of worry about yourself and your school and get ready for the spring game. When the coaches start visiting everything starts to pick up again. You talk to new coaches and see what new offers you get."
