Devin Burns Profile

Carver High School standout, Devin Burns, has been enjoying the recruiting process early on to say the very least. The dual-threat quarterback has merely been attracting attention from several major college programs throughout the country, and has already landed a number of DI scholarship offers. "Right now I have offers from Arkansas, UAB, Troy, Southern Miss, Georgia Tech, and Vanderbilt," the gifted athlete said. "I think that's about it for now."

According to Burns, the Vanderbilt Coaching Staff made their offer to him back in the month of February. And since then, they have been keeping a very close eye on the 2010 talent. And you can simply thank Coach Kitchens for simply staying on top of things early on… "Coach Kitchens and I have established a pretty good relationship," Burns shared with "He told me that he thinks that I'd be a good attribute to the team. He also mentioned that I could possibly come in and compete for the starting job."

The 6-2, 175 pound field general admitted that he didn't know a great deal about Vanderbilt when they first offered him. But lately, the 2010 prospect has been doing a little bit of investigating, in order to find out more about the prestigious SEC program. "I've done a little bit of research on the area; Nashville," Burns said. "It seems like a pretty nice area. As far as the school, I know that Vanderbilt is a very good school academically. From a football standpoint, I really like the type of offense that they run. I feel like I would be a great asset to their team."

In order to get an even better feel for Vanderbilt, Burns is planning to make an appearance on campus sometime in the very near future. "I'm going out there on next weekend to catch the Spring Game," he said. "I'll probably be going up with my whole family. It'll give us all a chance to see what it's like out there."

From the sound of things, Vanderbilt appears to be is fairly decent shape for the 6-2, 170 pound athlete early on. However, they are going to have to compete against a couple of ACC programs. "Right now I‘d have to say that Georgia Tech and Maryland are my favorites," Burns said. "Those are probably my top two schools right now. But everybody still has a chance though."

We will have a full report on Devin whenever he returns home from his trip to Nashville. So be sure to stay in tuned for much more on this fine young talent from out of Columbus, Georgia.
