Burgess Expecting To Visit Utah

San Marcos (CA) cornerback Terrell Burgess has the Utes near the top of his list

Utah's drive into California on the recruiting trail continues as their push for top-notch athletes takes them to San Marcos High School and cornerback prospect Terrell Burgess.

The 6-0, 182 pound corner prospect visited Salt Lake City and the University of Utah over the summer and was very impressed by what he experienced.

"The school is amazing. I really liked it. Everything was great. The facilities were really nice and everyone was great to be around."

As Burgess gets his senior season underway, he's beginning to work on setting up official visits, with one to Utah a strong possibility.

"I want to take and official visit out to Utah and we've talked about coming out Halloween weekend when they take on Oregon State."

Burgess has been building a strong relationship with defensive coordinator John Pease, but also has a lot of interest in Sharrieff Shah and his background.

"Coach Pease is an old guy, but he's really cool and really funny. I like him a lot. I also like Coach Shah a lot too. I want to be a lawyer someday and that's something he was able to do, so I'd be in a great situation to learn from him. A lot of people have told me that I'm really good at arguing so a career in law would fit me well."

With multiple offers under his belt, Burgess has six schools that are standing out at this time.

"Right now my top schools are Nevada, Colorado State, Oregon State, Wisconsin, Utah, and Utah State. All schools are about equal at this point and I want to give everyone a chance."

Wanting to get the full recruiting experience, Burgess isn't in a rush to make a decision anytime soon.

"I don't have a timeframe for when I make a decision right now. I do want to take all of my visits first and then will probably decide towards the end of my season or right after that, but I'm not 100 percent sure."

San Marcos and Burgess opened their season with a loss in which he had 4 catches for 60 yards and 'a few tackles.'
