Burnette spent 2010 as the backup to Dwight Dasher, appearing in eight games while starting one. Overall he went 13-for-25 and tallied 160 yards and two touchdowns. He also went 2-for-3 for 45 yards and a touchdown in a very impressive drive during the 2009 R&L Carriers New Orleans Bowl.
Burnette was one of two quarterbacks signed by Middle Tennessee as a part of their 2008 class. The four-year starter from Maryville, Tenn. was a highly-touted prospect after compiling a perfect 60-0 record in high school.
The Blue Raiders currently have five quarterbacks listed on their roster: returning starter Dwight Dasher, JUCO transfer Logan Kilgore, r-Jr. Andrew Banks, r-Fr. Jamal Ramsey and r-Fr. Spencer Wise.
