Auburn Offer "Very Exciting" For Burton

Auburn offered wide receiver Myron Burton on Tuesday and the son of a former Tiger talks about what that means.

Suwanee, Ga.--For Peachtree Ridge wide receiver Myron Burton the news was kind of expected, but that didn't make it any less exciting.

Getting good feedback from Auburn wide receiver coach Dameyune Craig as well as head coach Gus Malzahn recently, the son of a former Auburn player was waiting on an offer from the Tigers to come down.

He doesn't have to wait any longer.

Getting in touch with Craig early on Tuesday, the 6-2, 196 Burton tells Inside The Auburn Tigers that getting the news that he has an offer from Auburn just made his day.

"It was exciting," Burton says. "I knew it was coming, but to finally get the offer after being patient and just working hard it feels like everything just paid off. Coach Craig told me the previous night that they would have some big news for me and when I talked to him he said they wanted to officially offer me."

Getting the offer he's been waiting for, Burton says that Auburn moves up very high on his list along with Tennessee and Vanderbilt with Miami recently coming on his radar. Still waiting on an offer from the Hurricanes, he says there is plenty to like about the Tigers at the moment and it starts with Craig.

"The relationship is huge," Burton says. "When you talk about where you want to go for the next four years of your life I'm pretty sure you have to like your coach. Coach Craig is one of the coolest coaches I know. He tells it like it is."

Auburn already has a pair of commitments at the wide receiver position in junior college standout D'haquille Williams and Georgia prep star Stanton Truitt. If the Tigers can add Burton to the mix one of the reasons why may be his relationship with Truitt.

"It's pretty neat," he says of Truitt. "I played with Stanton my sophomore year I think before he ended up transferring. It's kind of weird that we end up back together."

Planning to visit Auburn this weekend to see the Tigers take on Ole Miss, Burton says at the moment he doesn't have any plans to make a decision and wants to just take his time before one of the biggest decisions he'll ever have to make.

"I'm not exactly sure when I'll do it," Burton says. "I'm thinking at least after football season if not after the regular season."
