Junior Profile: Lyndale Burleson
Lyndale Burleson, 6-2 JR PG Seattle (Wash.) Franklin, has good size and quickness, with the potential to be an outstanding defensive player. He needs to work on his shot, as well as his ball handling and passing. We spoke with Burleson yesterday and asked him if he had a list of schools that he's considering. "I haven't even started to put a list together," said Burleson. "But some of the schools I'm hearing from are Kansas, Missouri, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Washington, Gonzaga, Minnesota, Arizona, USC, Texas Tech, Michigan and Cincinnati." Burleson's older brother, Kevin, plays at Minnesota. We asked Burleson about the issues that he'd consider when making his decision. "I want to be recruited as a point guard," said Burleson. "I don't want to be a two-guard, or a combo -- just a point guard." Early playing time won't be a determining factor for Burleson. "It's kind of important -- I want to play -- but I need to learn and I won't choose a school based on early playing time. If they're recruiting another point guard, that's one thing, but I don't mind sitting behind someone who is already there." Burleson told us he has no geographical preference. "Wherever -- it doesn't matter," said Burleson. "Anywhere I'm comfortable. I grew up thinking that I'd go wherever the best opportunity was for me." Look for Burleson's older brothers to have a say in his decision. "They went through the process already," said Burleson. "So I'm going to talk to them and listen to what they have to say." Burleson said he'll probably take several trips before making his decision. Burleson told us that his GPA for the current quarter was 3.3 and he'll take the SAT in the near future.
