Devin Burleson, 6-9 JR C Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco, is a big-bodied post with a variety of schools expressing interest in him.

"I've heard from Colorado, USC, UCLA, Oregon, Syracuse, West Virginia, Villanova, Indiana, UNLV, New Mexico State and some others," said Burleson.

When asked which schools have offered to date, Burleson replied, "USC, UNLV and New Mexico State."

Burleson talked a little about the factors that will be important when choosing a school.

"I'm looking for a balance between education and athletics," said Burleson. "The location doesn't really matter. As far as early playing time, when you play in college you're going against the best in the nation. So I understand that I'm going to have to earn minutes."

I asked Burleson if he has a time frame in mind for picking a school.

"I'll probably wait until after I have taken all my official visits," said Burleson.

Burleson said he is wide open.

"I don't have a favorite right now," said Burleson.

Burleson has been on unofficial visits to UNLV and USC. He said he has a 3.7 GPA.
