San Marcos (Calif.) cornerback Terrell Burgess (6-0, 180) is close to double-digit offers after a big spring.

Utah was the latest school to offer Burgess, an offer he thought was close to happening, with the Utes offering on Monday.

The Utes followed Nevada, Colorado State, San Diego State, Oregon State, Arizona, Utah State and Wisconsin in offering Burgess.

“And I’ve talked with UCLA more too, they came by,” said Burgess, whose crosstown rivals, Mission Hills, had a cornerback, Dechaun Holiday, who signed with UCLA.

Burgess said he could camp with the Bruins this summer too.

Oregon State was the first Pac-12 school to offer Burgess and that kicked things off for him.

“I was really relieved when Oregon State offered because I thought I could play in the Pac-12,” said Burgess. “Once they offered, my recruiting really took off.”

Wisconsin followed suit not long after, with the Badgers returning to San Diego to recruit Burgess, after signing his teammate Kevin Estes in February.

“I had seen them once or twice on campus, but then they offered and it was pretty exciting,” said Burgess. “I know Kevin is going there so I know more about them.”

Most schools like Burgess as a cornerback but some are open to other positions.

“Some schools are recruiting me specifically as an athlete, but some are saying defensive back,” said Burgess.

Burgess said he doesn’t plan to decide early.

“I will probably take some visits rather soon, unofficially, but I would like to take all five official visits,” said Burgess.

Academically, Burgess has a 3.0 GPA and will take the SAT on Saturday.
