OLB T.J. Burrell Profile
The 2012 prospect that's ranked the No. 58 outside linebacker in the country got a better sense of what kind of role he could occupy when he gets to Tigertown for good.
Potentially, there are a couple of different options for Burrell.
"Right now, I'm not really sure. It depends on how much weight I gain," he said. "I might end up playing WILL or I could play a SAM/nickel-type. I guess it really depends on my weight, but I could be like a nickel back. If they need me to play WILL, I can."
Burrell also spent time around defensive coordinator Brent Venables.
"He's a very live coach. He's very exciting when he teaches. I feel like he has all the tools…he's going to coach you up on every mistake you did," Burrell said.
The Goose Creek High School senior looks forward to moving up to Clemson later this summer.
"It's off the charts. I can't wait to get up there and get with the rest of the guys, start practicing, just fit in and start that experience," he said.
During his senior season, Burrell had 105 tackles and 12 tackles for loss. As a junior, he had 105 tackles and three interceptions.
