Burton Remains Solid With Duke

Tim Burton is a talented cornerback prospect from Cardinal Gibbons and Scout caught up with him for the latest.

Tim Burton committed to Duke this summer and he talked about his experience there.

"I went to the Duke camp, I did good at that camp. I went to Wake Forest's camp and North Carolina's camp as well as South Carolina camp. They all went real good. My slowest 40 time I ran was a 4.47 at the fourth camp and I was tired from the other camps."

Burton, 5-foot-10 and 170 pounds, explains why he chose the Blue Devils.

"The first thing, I went up there and liked the campus first of all. Then the education, I know what Duke can do for me. I love Coach Cutcliffe, with him being the head coach and me having a good relationship with my recruiting coordinator, that is real good, which is my position coach, we gel real good. It was an opportunity I couldn't turn down. It is BCS football in the ACC. We are Duke. I wouldn't be one bit surprised if in the next few years we have it. Right now I am a solid commit."

Burton said he's not sure about taking any other visits but he plans on going to Duke soon.

"As far as my visits go, I don't know what I am doing. I am planning my Duke visit sometime with the next month."

The standout corner, who claims a 3.3 GPA and a 940 SAT score, talked about his goals for this season after starting 1-0 with a win over Taravella.

"My goal this season is 700 yards rushing, 300 yards receiving, 15 touchdowns and 5 interceptions," he said.
