Cards commit Rodjay Burns enjoys spring game

Louisville Trinity cornerback Rodjay Burns, a Cardinal commitment, attended the U of L spring game on Friday night. Cardinal Authority has his reaction.

Louisville Trinity athlete Rodjay Burns made the decision to commit to the hometown Cardinals in March. The three-star commitment checked out his future team on Friday night at the program's annual spring game. He joined the large group of recruits on the field prior to the game and then took in the action from the seats at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium.

"I was able to stay for the first two quarters," he said. "They have a great program. I thought the team looked really good."

He stayed long enough to see the first team defense lock down the second team offense, while seeing a pair of Trinity alums - Reggie Bonnafon and James Quick - help the offense get off to a blistering start.

"They put up a quick 30 points," he said. "That amazed me. They looked good."

Burns excels at both wide receiver and defensive back at Trinity. As a junior, he caught 41 passes for 590 yards and seven touchdowns, while also registering 30 tackles and four interceptions on defense.

His off season focus has been to further improve his abilities in the defensive secondary.

"I'm working on my cornerback game," said the 6-foot-2, 185-pound prospect. "I feel like that's what I'm going to college to play. I feel like I could work to be a next level guy at corner. There are a lot of 6-foot-2 receivers, but not that many corners."

He was impressed by what he saw from the Cardinals secondary on Friday night.

"They seem really physical. They seem like that they can come up and make a big play."
