AU Offer May Be Coming Soon For WR Prospect

Speedy wide receiver Myron Burton talks about his senior season, the recruiting process and his interest in the Auburn Tigers.

Suwanee, Ga.--Growing up very familiar with the Auburn Tigers as the son of a former AU player, speedy wide receiver Myron Burton from Peachtree Ridge High is on track to make a name for himself in the 2014 class after a strong start to his senior season.

Helping his team to a 4-0 mark, including a game last week in which he made six catches for nearly 100 yards, Burton says his senior season is off to a smooth start.

"Things are going great," Burton tells Inside The Auburn Tigers. "We are 2-0 in the region and won the last game 31-30. It was a big region win, now we have to keep things rolling.

"Individually, I think I'm doing pretty good," he adds. "I'm doing way better than I did last year. I feel like I have become a better player. I'm a better route runner now and I am doing better at making plays after the catch. I'm driving for those extra three or four yards."

Already with offers from Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Georgia Tech, Georgia State and Western Kentucky, the 6-2, 196 Burton is also hearing from Auburn, Miami, Missouri and Florida.

Myron Burton is shown in action this summer.

Camping at Auburn over the summer, Burton had the opportunity to get to know the new coaching staff better and work with wide receiver coach Dameyune Craig personally in drills. One of the most impressive players at any position from the summer sessions, Burton notes that it has led to him feeling pretty good about the chances of an offer moving forward this season.

"It was good," Burton says. "I like the entire coaching staff and the way we simulated practice at the camp. I'm hearing a lot from Coach Dameyune Craig. We talk on a daily basis. I just sent my transcript to them and I'm pretty sure they are close to offering.

"That would mean a lot to me," he adds of getting an Auburn offer. "They would be high on my list, really high. He (Craig) is a really cool coach. He's real funny. He keeps me relaxed and lets you do what you're supposed to do. I like that."

Making a recent return visit for a game at Jordan-Hare Stadium to see the Tigers in action, Burnton says that he likes the way Malzahn's team is playing to this point in the season and feels like they have a chance to do some good things this fall.

"I like the up-tempo offense," Burton notes. "I like how the quarterback is playing. He's throwing the ball to a lot of different receivers. It's not just one person making plays, it's the whole offense making plays. I think the future is very bright."
