Auburn WR Commitment Has "Amazing" Visit

Auburn commitment Myron Burton talks about his official visit, Dameyune Craig and much more.

Suwanee, Ga.--Already committed to the Auburn Tigers, wide receiver Myron Burton already knew plenty about the campus and facilities before taking his official visit to the Plains over the weekend. The son of a former Auburn player (Myron Burton-1993), he camped at Auburn over the summer and made several trips to Jordan-Hare Stadium during the season.

Getting the chance to spend quality time with Coach Gus Malzahn, offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee, and his future position Coach Dameyune Craig as well as his future teammates, Burton said everything about the trip went great.

"It was an amazing visit," Burton said. "I liked the campus, academic-wise, my teammates and recruits, everything was just great. My mom fell in love with it also. She was with me the whole time there. She loved the academic as well as the athletic portion of things.

"It was amazing day and night," he added. "We all clicked. We've got the same personalities, laid-back and family people. It's just great."

Hosted on his official visit by Auburn freshmen receivers Marcus Davis and Tony Stevens, Burton said it was great to get to spend time with and pick the brains of a pair of guys who were in the position this season that he'll be in next fall with the Tigers.

"They said when I get there just to seize the opportunity," Burton said. "They told me that I'll have opportunities to get on the field and play early and that I have to seize every opportunity I get. They said Coach Craig has never lied to them. He's a great coach and I believe them.

"They said as soon as I get there they'll take my under their wing," he added. "They'll lead me in the right direction I want to go. I'm glad of that."

Currently up to 6-2, 197, Burton has become a much more physical wide receiver as a senior. That is something that should allow him an opportunity to play early next season and that's his goal. Hoping to be close to 205 pounds by the time preseason practices begin, he said he's looking forward to playing for Craig and making his mark.

"When I first met Coach Craig the first thing he told me was that I was going to play early," he said. "Then getting here with the freshmen telling me I would play early, it's just making it better and seconding that emotion."
