Georgia Visits, Re-Offers Burns

COLUMBUS – There was a time when Devin Burns probably never wanted to see Georgia ever again. That was not the case today.

Burns, the quarterback at powerhouse Carver, was offered a scholarship from Georgia today. The move was a 180-degree flip for the Bulldogs who had offered Burns earlier in the season only to take the offer back just as he was set to commit to them.

"I was surprised they offered because of what happened with the incident earlier this year," Burns said. The talented signal caller said he didn't hold anything against the Bulldogs – and that they were "nice."

"Like I said – I was surprised," Burns said. "They were nice people and real down to earth people. Stuff like that (when he tried to commit and was turned down) happens from time to time. They are real nice people."

Burns said, however, that he's headed to Maryland at the end of the month. He will play quarterback for the Terrapins next year. Maryland announced yesterday that they would retain embattled head coach Ralph Friedgen for the 2010 season.

"I talked with the Georgia coaches and told them that that I am set with my decision right now. I am headed up to Maryland to enroll in a couple weeks," Burns said.
