Burt Hearing From Schools All Over The Nation

Wylie junior defensive back Terrell Burt is hearing from schools all over the country. After a junior season where he helped lead his team to a state semi-final appearance, it's no wonder why.

Wylie HS (TX) finished the year 11-4 overall, losing to the eventual state runner-up Denton Ryan 25-20 in a close Texas 4A semi-final match-up.

A big reason for their success was the play of 2012 defensive back Terrell Burt. The junior recorded 58 tackles, two sacks, and two interceptions, in the process becoming a pain for passing quarterbacks.

Currently Burt is hearing from Iowa, Nebraska, SMU, Oklahoma State, Iowa State, Texas Tech, and Virginia.

"I'm a guy who would be happy to go anywhere. I just want to play football and get a good education," said Burt. "It would be hard for me to leave the state of Texas, but I would go anywhere.

"I'm going to be looking at how I fit into someone's system and how good of an education I can get. I also want to find a place that will be sort of another home for me."

The junior plans to visit SMU and Kansas in the near future and went to Oklahoma State for their homecoming game against Nebraska earlier this season.

"From what I heard a couple days ago, Iowa State has interest in offering me and a few other schools as well," said Burt. "I know my coach is just trying to get my name out there right now."

The 2012 standout had this to say about a couple schools currently recruiting him.

Iowa - "At this point, they are sending me letters about there program and giving me congrats on how my high school and I were doing in the state playoffs. It's pretty cool. They are a big time program."

Nebraska - "Nebraska is a great school. They haven't been recruiting me as hard lately, but it's a school I would like to possibly check out."

SMU - "They wanted me and some of the other teammates to go to a game, but it didn't work out. My coach has told me they have all my information on me already, so I guess we are good to go there."
