Burgin Likes What He Sees At OSU

In the span of two weeks quarterback Brady Burgin of Dallas (Highland Park), Texas has seen two of the Big 12 South heavyweights while attending Junior Day activities. The 6-3, 200-pound Scots signal caller was at Texas A&M last week and made the trip to Oklahoma State on Saturday.

He is with a number of other top North Texas area prospects Sunday at the indoor facility at Southlake Carroll High School for a showcase, Next Level Athletes Top Texas 100 sponsored by Fox Sports Southwest.

Playing roughly half the time this season while splitting time with a senior at Highland Park, Burgin earned a 191.8 quarterback rating by completing 121 of 173 passes for 1,985 yards and 18 touchdowns with just 6 interceptions.

Burgin said he really liked his conversation with former Nebraska quarterback and Texas A&M assistant Zac Taylor a week ago at Texas A&M, while yesterday he was impressed with the Oklahoma State facilities and the opportunities to hear from players and also academic support members of the Oklahoma State staff.

"What did I think? I thought I liked it a lot," said Burgin. "The facilities and to see all of those areas in the football area like that team room, you think that you are in a movie theater. It is real nice and the locker room and everything they have for the players is great.

"There was not a lot of one-on-one talk with the coaches but you got to hear from them like Coach (Doug) Meacham and you got to hear from the players. Everything sounded good and I think it is easy to get along with the offensive coaches. I know they are still looking to add their offensive coordinator and that is okay. I know what they are going to do on offense."

Burgin said he saw some familiar faces on the Junior Day trip to Stillwater including Richardson (Pearce), Texas, athlete Corey Coleman. Coleman was the Dallas Morning News' High School Basketball Player of the Week last week with 17 points a game and a game winner on the week. He is averaging 11.5 points a game on the season and rushed for nearly 500 yards and 13 touchdowns last fall playing several positions.

"I also saw Jake Williams (offensive lineman) from Coppell in the weight room when he we were in there and I saw Torrance Carr from Richardson. I guess he was there on an official visit," added Burgin.

"We got to see the meeting rooms, everything and then went back in the weight room. I was at Texas A&M last week, now Oklahoma State, and then I have Texas Tech (Junior Day) coming up in February and that is all that I know for now."

Burgin said he made the trip to Oklahoma State with his father. As for now it sounds like he is having a lot of fun with everything.
