ATH T.J. Burrell Profile
Illinois, Maryland, Nebraska, Cincinnati, North Carolina, Georgia, Georgia Tech and N.C. State had all sent coaches by the school when CUTigers.com was on location last week.
Clemson running backs coach Tony Elliott was the first coach from Tigertown to stop by. Defensive coordinator Kevin Steele and defensive backs coach Charlie Harbison were through the school on Monday.
Burrell's primary recruiter to Clemson is Elliott.
"I probably talk to him about every two weeks. I either give him a call or get him through e-mail," Burrell said. "We've got a pretty tight relationship."
Before Elliott, it was defensive tackles coach Dan Brooks.
The Tigers are recruiting Burrell as an athlete on the defensive side of the ball.
"It's a wide variety. They tell me I could cornerback, strong safety or outside linebacker," he said.
Burrell thinks strong safety would be his best position at the next level.
"I'm fast enough to cover. I can play inside and make hits, too. I'm a lot more physical than people think I am," he said.
This summer, Burrell would like to visit Maryland and Illinois. Camp stops at Clemson, Alabama and North Carolina are also possible destinations.
A decision could be right around the corner.
"I think, within the beginning of the season, I think the first week I'll already be committed," he said. "I'm just trying to nail it down now and see what I've got, just take it from there."
Scout.com rates Burrell with three stars and ranks him as the No. 61 safety in the class of 2012.
As a junior, he registered 105 tackles and three interceptions.
