2013 DB Talks Irish Visit

One of the top prospects in Ohio for the class of 2013 is Trotwood-Madison defensive back Cameron Burrows. Saturday, Burrows was among the many to witness Notre Dame defeat Michigan State and talked to IrishEyes.com about the trip.

If you follow Ohio football recruiting the name Cameron Burrows is one you'll want to remember in the class of 2013.

Burrows, who stands 6-foot-2, 195-pounds, has already shown the skills major college programs look for and several have already issued verbal offers.

Notre Dame was one of Burrows early offers and on Saturday he made his first game day visit to watch the Irish.

"The trip was good," said Burrows. "I took a visit up there this past summer and while there they offered me a scholarship. On Saturday the coaches didn't really say too much to me."

One of the reasons Burrows has received such early attention is his overall athletic skills.

What does Burrows feels separates him from other prospects?

"I feel my game has progressed very well," said Burrows. "I can shut down one side of the field by myself, so teams are hesitant to throw my way or run my way as I can shut them down. I can also play offense as well and get a couple of touchdown also."

Does Burrows have a preference to the side of the football he'll play on in college?

"No," he said. "I'll play either side and will do what is best for the team."

When asked if he's set a timeline to make a college decision, Burrows knows he's got time to think about things and doesn't need to rush.

"I'm thinking about waiting until my senior season," said Burrows. "I probably look to do something at that time."

So far this fall Burrows has made three game day visits. He spoke about each of them with high regards.

"I've been to three games so far," said Burrows. "I went to Ohio State's game against Akron, Michigan's game against Notre Dame and then this weekend I went up to Notre Dame as they played against Michigan State.

"The Michigan game stood out as it was a night game and there were a lot of people there."

One area the Wolverines could hold an advantage is Burrows knows a few already on the team.

"It helps a little bit," said Burrows. "Because I know a few guys already up there, they can tell me how things are and what they go through each day."

While it's early, Burrows knows all three schools he's visit have one thing in common.

"Michigan, Ohio State and Notre Dame all have a lot of history and tradition," said Burrows."Each has shown they can win championships."

Does Burrows plan to make a return visit to Notre Dame this season?

"I think that is the only time I'll go up there this year," said Burrows. "I might look at going to a junior day this winter but I'm not sure at this time."
