"I like those schools, but I am still waiting," Burrell said. "I am going to the ABCD Camp, and things could change after that."
According to Our Savior Asst. Coach Karone Carmichael, Drexel has also offered Burrell. "I am open in my recruiting," Burrell emphasized. "I don't even have a list or an order of where I want to go."
Burrell averaged 17 points, 14 rebounds and six blocks per game this past season at Our Savior. This spring, he has been a key player for Dana Dingle's Long Island Lightning squad that recently lost in the Elite Eight of the Rumble in the Bronx.
Burrell is at his best reacting to the offensive glass, where he uses his quick pogo hops to finish plays above the rim. Along the baseline and underneath the basket, he can be a dangerous force. The further he strays away from the basket, the less effective a player he is.
Following next month's ABCD Camp, Burrell and the Lightning will play on the Reebok Circuit. They will attend Team Breakdown's Tournament in Miami, as well as the Reebok Big Time in Las Vegas.
Burrell won't take the SAT for the first time until the fall, but he has had the opportunity to take an unofficial visit to St. John's. "I've also been to Fordham a lot because I live near there," he added.
Burrell's recruitment will probably begin to take shape after the July evaluation period.
