Trip Report - Ben Burr-Kirven

Sacred Heart (Atherton, Ca.) LB Ben Burr-Kirven committed to Washington a little over three months ago. This weekend, the instinctive linebacker took his official visit to Montlake and he spent a lot of one-on-one time with his position coach Bob Gregory...

"I got a lot of time to hang out with him and watch some film," Burr-Kirven said. "We talked about the way they were looking to use me. I'm going to start out at the WIL (weakside linebacker) spot and we'll see how things go.

"I feel like I can play anywhere and whatever they need from me, I will do."

Burr-Kirven's host was walk-on linebacker Jake Wambaugh and the two had a good time talking to each other, but it was the time he spent with the coaches that probably impressed him the most.

"I think probably the most impressive thing to me was the amount of time the coaches were willing to take out of their weekend to meet with us and spend time with us," Burr-Kirven said. "They were all excited about the program and about all of us that were up on trips this weekend.

"They were really welcoming and what was really cool was that family feel they have up there. You might have just met someone, but they treat you like you're family and no one feels left out up there. I liked that."

Burr-Kirven said he plans to sign and fax in his letter-of-intent early in the day on February 4th, but he will also take part in an event at his high school later that day as well.

The talented two-way player sat out the first five games of his senior season while recovering from an injury. He still managed to lead the team with 862 yards and five scores on the ground while also finishing with 10 receptions for 224 yards and a touchdown as a receiver out of the backfield.

Burr-Kirven also managed to post 55 tackles, two sacks and two interceptions from his middle linebacker spot as well.
