Greenwood, Arkansas quarterback Jabe Burgess will be a senior this upcoming and fall and has already picked up official offers from Illinois and Tulsa.

AStateNation.com recently caught up Burgess to get his take on his recruitment so far.

According to the 6-2, 215 pound athlete, he has plans to take in several campuses in the next few weeks, including an unofficial visit to Fayetteville, this coming Wednesday.

"I'm excited about visiting the University of Arkansas this coming week," Burgess said. "I'm going to go visit with their new offensive coordinator Jim Chaney and get to know him and his staff a little better."

There appears to be another in state school that is getting attention from the talented signal caller.

"I have grown up an Arkansas State fan," Burgess said. "While some of my friends where Razorback stuff, I have my share of Arkansas State shirts and stuff."

According to Burgess he plans on taking a visit to Jonesboro sometime in March during the Red Wolves spring practices.

"I have been in contact with their new quarterback coach Bush Hamdan," Burgess said. "I thought I was close to getting an offer from the previous staff, according to Coach Hamdan they want to get to know me a little better and evaluate me a little more before making an offer."

Burgess currently has friends attending both in state schools.

"I have a lot of friends at both," Burgess said. "I have some really good friends at Arkansas State also, that's a school that I'm definitely interested in."

Other schools that are showing him interest include Auburn, Alabama, Oregon, Nebraska and Purdue.

"It's great to have offers from Illinois and Tulsa," Burgess said. "Getting those first offers out of the way is always great. Coach Horton from Auburn is really starting to recruit me a lot, he is definitely showing a lot of interest."

Burgess plans on visiting several campuses this spring and summer getting a good feel for some schools he may end up attending.
