``My parents and my high school coach had talked to Coach Haith while I was playing at the Super Showcase in Orlando, but they didn't want to tell me and mess up my play," said Burney, who played with the Georgia Stars. "When I got back, my dad told me what happened."
``Miami was looking for a bigger player – someone 6-10 and about 250 or 260. I'm only about 210 pounds and more athletic that what they need."
Now Burney's list includes a wide variety of schools all the way from ACC schools such as Georgia Tech, Maryland and Clemson to schools like Tulane, Jacksonville and Georgia State. Burney also mentioned Alabama.
``It's hard because I know I'd be getting more playing time at the smaller schools," Burney said. "I think I could start right away or be the sixth man coming off the bench."
``Or I could try and go to a Georgia Tech, Maryland or Clemson and not play as much right away, but play at a higher level."
``The school that really sticks out right now is Georgia Tech," he continued. "They're close to home and I have a little brother whose 2 years old and I'd like to see him grow up."
Burney, who averaged 14 points, 11 rebounds and six blocks as a junior and scored a 970 on the SAT and sports a 3.5 GPA, won't rush into a decision the second time around.
``Right now I'm open to everyone," Burney said. "I probably won't make a decision until Late November or early December."
