La Jolla (Calif.) Country Day 2017 quarterback and Arizona football commit Braxton Burmeister figures to be one of the more prolific high school quarterbacks in the nation during the next few seasons.
“I’ve thrown six touchdowns a game through the first couple weeks,” Burmeister said. “We could play better as a team, but, overall, I’m happy with how I’ve been playing.
"I’ve missed a few throws, but everyone will be fine. We all work hard and it’s the type of situation where we know how good we can be, if everything comes together.”
Burmeister has garnered interest from many of the best teams in the country.
“Oh, I’m totally committed," he said. "Schools always look around and try to see if guys might not be committed. Nobody forced me to commit.
"I committed because I was ready. I didn’t need to think about anything else. It was to the point where Arizona had everything I wanted and it was a waste of everybody’s time to keep things going. That hasn’t changed.”
Arizona’s close win against UTSA doesn’t concern Burmeister at all.
“I wasn’t able to see the entire game, but I know how it went," Burmeister said. "First game is always tough and it’s not like the offense struggled. Coach Rodriguez’s offense is always good and there is always a good mix of running and passing plays.
“I fit in well there because I have a good arm and passing is the first priority all the time, but I can for sure move if I need to.”
