Junior RB - Kenni Burns

The Illini already have two commitments from junior running backs and now Kenni Burns has Illinois on his wish list. Here's an early look at the recruitment of Burns.

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.
