Currently, Burnette, who stands at 6-foot-5, weighs 355 pounds with the goal of getting down to 315 by the beginning of his senior football season.
In addition to the Tar Heels, Burnette is receiving interest from N.C. State, Virginia, and Marshall.
To help bolster his recruiting stock, Burnette will camp at North Carolina on July 14th for the fourth time in as many years. He had hoped to attend a camp at N.C. State, but had a scheduling problem.
This summer, however, will be Burnette's first chance to work with new offensive line coach Mark Weber.
"I've already met him," said Burnette. "We talk every once in a while. We talk about basic conditioning, and finish up my schooling."
With so much exposure to the campus the past four summers and UNC's academic reputation, Burnette lists the Tar Heels as his leader.
"I'm in love with UNC," said Burnette. "It's just the atmosphere. The coaches treat you like you're already there. They didn't even have to offer you yet, but they treat you like family – that's my main thing.
Following his junior season, Burnette was named to the all-conference and all-region teams.
