QB Burns Getting Closer to Decision

Five-star prospect Kodi Burns discusses his upcoming visit to Auburn and what he will be looking for.

Fort Smith, Ark.--Quarterback Kodi Burns of Northside High School says he will be taking an official visit to Auburn this weekend to watch the Tigers play the Georgia Bulldogs and to get a feel for the gameday atmosphere on the Plains.

"I've already been down there and checked the facilities, met all of the coaches and everything so I'm pretty familiar," Burns says. "I've never been to an Auburn game so I'm trying to see the atmosphere and get a game time feel."

Burns, who has narrowed his choices to Auburn and Arkansas, says, "it's about 50/50" between the two schools.

"I'm coming in Friday in the morning," he notes. "I'm not sure what time I'll get there. This will be the only (official visit) I am taking."

Prospects are allowed a maximum of five official visits, but Burns says he has been to Fayetteville enough times already to get a good feel for the Razorbacks' program. His only other visit to Auburn was during the summer.

Kodi Burns is considered one of he nation's top high school seniors at any position.

Burns had previously said that he would likely wait until December to make his final decision, but Tiger and Razorback fans could find out his destination before then.

"It'll probably be sometime here pretty soon," Burns says. "I just want to be comfortable with my decision because I know both of them are great schools. It's just about feeling comfortable."

Burns' senior season at Northside High ended short of the playoffs with a 6-5 record despite the QB putting up big numbers of close to 3,000 all-purpose yards as a passer and runner with more than 30 touchdowns.

Once Burns makes his verbal commitment to either school he says he's going to focus on playing basketball and running track, a sport in which he competes in the 400 meter relay and the triple jump.
