3 star cornerback Terrell Burgess recaps his visit to Utah

Terrell Burgess gives his visit to Utah a 10 after taking an official

Utah hosted 3 star cornerback Terrell Burgess out of San Marcos, CA this past weekend and did a tremendous job of impressing the kind.

"It was a lot of fun. I visited over the summer, so this was my second trip to Utah, but I got to see some new things around the campus and around town. I'd give the visit a 10."

With Utah taking down Oregon State on Saturday night, Burgess was able to get the full team experience over the weekend.

"Getting to experience gameday with the team was great. They really have a strong family atmosphere at Utah and that's important to me. I got to go into the locker room after the game and see the team celebrating."

Burgess was hosted by another player from Southern California, and he, along with the other recruits, got to test their mettle behind the wheel over the weekend.

"Tim Patrick was my host. We got along really well. On Sunday we got to go to the K1 Speed to race karts and had a lot of fun. Everyone was really competitive."

Burgess is putting a lot of emphasis on academics when making his decision, narrowing down what he wants to do professionally.

"I want to be a lawyer someday, so place where I can get on track to do that. If not a lawyer, then I'll probably go to business school. I also want to go to a school with a winning tradition."

That puts Utah in a pretty good place due to one of their coaches being a former lawyer in Sharrieff Shah, along with the recent success over the last 15 years.

"I'm being recruited by Coach Shah a bit, but mostly by Coach Pease. He's the funniest guy I've ever met."

This was Burgess' third visit, and while none of the schools have separated himself, he'll narrow it down to five schools once all visits have been completed.

"I've taken visits to Nevada and Arizona, but don't have any other ones setup right now. I'm not sure who else I'll visit, but I want to get the full experience and take all five visits."

With two more visits to go, and plenty of football left to be played, he won't be deciding for at least a few more weeks.

"I'll decide sometime between the end of my season and January. I want to find the right fit."

The 6' 180 pounder can plays on both sides of the ball, and Utah could end up using him on both should they land the highly touted recruit.

"Utah is recruiting me as a cornerback, but said that I could get a shot to play on offense as well."
