Coffee DB still committed?

Douglas (Ga) Coffee County cornerback Koreen Burch may be committed to Ball State, but he's still getting looks from a number of major college programs. Recently, Burch spoke with about his pledge to Ball State and the teams showing interest in him.

As of right now, Koreen Burch is still committed to Ball State.

"Yes Sir, it's a soft verbal," said Burch. "It's a good school. I visited Ball State on September 9th, and they've got a top of the line facility. They offered my junior year. They were the first to offer and that meant a lot to me."

Even though the 5-foot-9, 170-pounder has already committed, that hasn't stopped other major college programs from showing interest. In fact, Burch has added scholarships from four more schools recently.

"Georgia Southern, Kent State, Miami (Ohio), and South Florida have offered me," he said. "West Virginia, Florida, and Southern Miss are all still talking to me."

On the season, Burch has racked 48 tackles with 15 for a loss and two picks including one for a score. His play has helped Coffee advance to the second round of the state playoffs. The Trojans (9-2) are still very much alive after a 29-0 win over Hiram last Friday.

"I believe if we come to play, I don't think there is anybody that can beat us," Burch said. "If one person on our team doesn't come to play, then we'll probably have a pretty bad night. That's just how tough the competition is when you get this far. We've got the confidence. We may be the underdog, but we're gonna come out on top. I think we've got a good shot at the Dome."

When it comes to recruiting, Burch would like to take a closer look at other programs, but only when the season is over.

"I'm still interested in a couple of schools," he said. "Georgia Southern and Southern Miss want me to come visit, but I'm gonna wait until after the season. Right now, the playoffs are really important. I'll go to college next year, but I'm gonna finish out the season and then I'll take my visits."
