Burns still has Alabama high on his list, but he wants to explore all of his options. He made a decision a little too quickly.
"I had to sit back, look at my options, and see where I want to be. I just committed too soon.
The school closest to home is really making a push for the Northwestern star.
"Miami is coming at me hard and I talk to every coach from there. I have been on their campus a lot because they are close to home. They have great tradition, especially at defensive back, so I am looking at them pretty hard too."
Both Alabama and Miami will get an official visit from Burns after September 1 as will another in-state program.
"Florida State has a lot of great history at their program and I like them. Their coaches are cool and they make me feel comfortable. I plan to visit them officially during the season. Florida State, Alabama, and Miami are the only schools I know I will visit officially right now," said the 6-foot-1, 180 pound cornerback.
Once all the dust settles, the official visits are taken, and Burns is ready to make his final decision, one thing will play a big role in that.
"Me feeling at home is what it is all about. I have to feel comfortable, I have to feel good at the school, and I want to feel like I am home. I will commit late in the fall after the season is over, but it is all about how I feel when I am at a school."
Scout ranks Burns no. 18 in the country at cornerback.
