Burton Ready To Sign Wednesday

Another official visitor for Oklahoma State this weekend before recruiting goes dead on Monday and the junior college signing day comes up on Wednesday was safety Jordan Burton from Kilgore Junior College and originally from Longview, Texas. Burton arrived in Stillwater for his visit on Friday and left late Sunday morning.

"Yes sir, I'm set and I will sign on Wednesday," Burton said confirming his allegiance with his previous commitment to Oklahoma State.

"It (his visit) went pretty good. I got to see more of the town and all it has to offer. I got to meet the rest of the coaching staff. I got to see the team and see a practice for their bowl game, so I got to see how they work."

Burton, who said he drove up from Longview where he was a star for the Lobos in high school, was shown around on his visit by current starting linebacker Seth Jacobs and said he was fed pretty good. He also said they had a big recruiting dinner on Saturday night after the practice.

"They did a real good job on the apartments for the players," Burton said when asked about the living areas. "Coach [Mike] Gundy did a good job in planning those and they are not too big and not too small. It's a great set up and I'm looking forward to being there."

Burton should know soon if he earned NJCAA All-American honors as he was a first-team All-SWJCFC safety this season at Kilgore with 108 total tackles, 52 unassisted, and three fumble recoveries. He had offers from Iowa State, Kansas, Texas Tech, Tulsa, Arizona State, and Louisiana-Lafayette.
