Suwanee, Ga.--A talented wide receiver prospect for the 2014 class, speedy Myron Burton from Peachtree Ridge High. came to Auburn's final summer camp on Saturday hoping to earn an offer from the Tigers.

One of the top receivers in the event that attracted more than players, Burton left with the Auburn coaches seriously looking at him after dominating the competition with a combination of strength and explosiveness.

"I loved the camp," Burton said. "I loved the facilities. I loved the coaching staff. I loved that I got to compete. It was a great camp, one of the best camps I have been to this summer."

The son of Myron Burton, who played defensive end at Auburn on the 1993 undefeated Auburn Tigers, the 6-2, 196 receiver camped on the Plains last summer and decided to come back again. Spending time with the new staff and showing his stuff, Burton said it was a great experience.

"It never gets old," Burton said. "It's a good experience every time I come to Auburn. The coaching staff is great. I like them all. They taught me things I didn't even know. I feel like I got better today. I feel like I made an impression."
