Signing Day Impact: Cameron Burrows

It's National Signing Day in America, and recruits are faxing their letters of intent to their schools of choice across the country. Who is in the fold at Ohio State for the class of 2013?

Cameron Burrows was the first commit in Ohio State's 2013 recruiting class, and his commitment was pretty much expected from the moment head coach Urban Meyer issued the offer. Burrows, 6-foot, 205-pounds, played in the Under Armour All-America Game this past January.

Burrows is expected to start out at cornerback, where he will battle Armani Reeves for the third spot behind expected starters Bradley Roby and Doran Grant. A move to safety down the road would not be a surprise.

BREAKDOWN: I saw Cam Burrows as a sophomore starter at Trotwood-Madison when I originally went to see teammate Bam Bradley. Within a few minutes, it was fairly obvious that Burrows was going to be the better player. There are doubts about his coverage ability, but Burrows showed well at Under Armour against the best high school wide receivers in the country, and he just might be a boundary cornerback at Ohio State. He might be a player that tops out at 215-pounds, and he has bright future regardless of position.

What might not be well-known is the leadership skills of Cam Burrows, and he qualifies as a possible future captain at Ohio State. Burrows has a great work ethic and attitude, and takes his business very seriously. This is a very mature individually, and is set up for success, on and off the field. -Bill Greene

ANDRE BURROWS ON HIS SON CHOOSING OHIO STATE: Burrows, 6-foot-1, 195-pounds, is one of America's top cornerback prospects for the class of 2013, and last Thursday he committed to Ohio State. Burrows' father, Andre, took the time to speak with about his son.

"First off, I'm more proud of Cameron for being ranked number-seven in his class academically, than I am for his recruiting ranking," Andre Burrows stated after his son announced for Ohio State. "The only college I attended was barber college, so to have both of my sons on their way to having college degrees means everything to my wife and I."

"This is one of the proudest moments I've had, to be honest," he continued. "As a parent, it doesn't get any better. Cameron has always been a great kid, and very mature for his age. He always competed athletically against his older brother Christopher, and a lot of other older kids. He never backed down from the older guys ever."
