Burden Patiently Awaiting Offer From Favorite

Offensive lineman Freddie Burden visited Georgia Tech over the weekend for the Yellow Jackets' game against Clemson, and he's hoping an offer comes soon, because he'd like to spend his college career in Atlanta.

The 2012 recruit out of Statesboro (GA) High School arrived on campus early on Saturday and had a chance to see nearly all of the football facilities on Tech's campus, and he liked the amenities of the program.

"It was a very nice trip – the atmosphere was great," Burden said.

Freddie Burden also had the chance to go into the locker room after Tech's victory over Clemson was complete, and he said the day was really great as a whole. He watched the game closely, and he mentioned that one of the big positives for GT is that they can compete with any school they play.

Another plus to Burden is the triple-option offense the Yellow Jackets run. The senior said he has always been a fan of Georgia Tech Football, but he has wanted to play for the program since head coach Paul Johnson came to town and implemented his offense.

"I like the offense because it can bust a big play at any time," Burden said.

While he wants to play for Georgia Tech in 2012, the Yellow Jackets are not one of the seven schools that have offered the offensive lineman. Burden said that he was hoping to make a final decision in December or some time around then, but he may reconsider if he isn't completely ready to decide.

Every week, Burden speaks with his recruiting coach Lamar Owens and he said he is happy with the relationship he has with Owens. The message remains the same – keep Georgia Tech in his top spot, and an offer should be on its way.

But Burden continues to wait and hope that one day, he will be a Yellow Jacket.
