One of the top running back prospects in the Midwest for 2002 will be 6-foot-0, 190-pound speedster, Kenni Burns.
Burns is from Springfield (Ill.) Sacred Heart-Griffin. His head coach is Ken Leonard.
Burns will be a three-year starter that rushed for 1,800 yards and 20 touchdowns as a sophomore.
Kenni was hurt most of his junior season but still had seven rushing touchdowns in the four games he played.
"Right now the schools that I like the most are Indiana, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri and Northwestern."
We'll have more in Burns in the near future.
