Burrow Gives Latest on Offers & Visitors

Things continue to move forward for Ohio's top quarterback as teams continue to offer and checkout Joey Burrow.

The past few weeks have seen The Plains (Ohio) Athens quarterback Joey Burrow continues to receive interest from across the country.

"I was offered by Vanderbilt a little over a week ago," said Burrow. "Coach (Gerry) Gdowski and Coach (Keven) Lightner were at Ohio and just got the jobs down at Vanderbilt. So they probably pushed for me to get an offer and it ended up working out."

Has the 6-foot-4, 190-pound signal caller ever visited Vanderbilt in the past?

"I've never visited there but have driven through there," he said. "I think I'll be visiting sometime in early June to get a better look."

While Burrow is receiving a lot of attention locally with his recruitment, this week found the area buzzing when an SEC program stopped to see him throw.

"Coach (Bobby) Williams of Alabama stopped by this week so that was big news here in Athens," explained Burrow. "Coach Williams stopped and watched me throw but I've not received any feedback from them yet."

Another program keeping tabs on Burrow is Ohio State. What is the latest new surrounding any interest the Buckeyes might have?

"Things have started to pick up there," he said. "I think they are trying to get me to camp but they've not come out and said it yet. But I think that is where we are moving towards."

Right now Burrow plans on taking part in the NIKE Football Training Camp and Elite 11 quarterback competition at the beginning of June. He also said there is a chance he'll camp at Alabama depending upon the feedback he receives.
