Burgess told ITV that he spoke with U of L coaches Rick Pitino and Kevin Willard Thursday evening and indicated that Randolph Morris' visit to U of L this weekend was holding up his decision for the moment.
"Yeah it does a little bit," Burgess responded when asked if Morris' visit was the reason he hadn't come to a final decision.
Burgess stated, however, that the U of L coaches told him they'd take the first prospect between Morris and himself to commit.
Also, concerns and questions about BYU's current frontcourt situation in this recruiting class were answered satisfactorily earlier this week by Cougar head coach Steve Cleveland, Burgess said.
"Coach Cleveland said I was the only guy they're recruiting that would be able to play right away because of my size and strength," Burgess stated.
Gonzaga also appears to still be in the mix because of their projected needs in the frontcourt next season.
Burgess said he's consulted regularly this week with his parent and brothers and that he prays regularly about the decision. He's also been receiving good advice from his parents.
"They simply tell me to go where I'll be happy and be able to play," Burgess said.
Burgess said he could decide real soon, possibly before the end of the weekend.
