Did you spend alot of time with Aaron Murray and Austin Long?

Burnette- " Me, Aaron, Orson Charles, Austin and Jarvis Jones hung out all week long. We tried to work on them as much as we could within reason. We really clicked out there and it showed us what it could be like with all of us together in a few short months if it works out that way."

Who was the one guy out there who made you up your game?

Burnette- "Will Campbell was a very versatile guy. He played offense and defense out there. I knew each time I went up against him I better strap it up. He was a clown off the field, but he was all business on the field. I got to know him real well and I am glad he was on our team."

Do you have a new found respect for the Army after this trip?

Burnette- " I have always looked up to those people. They have a special place in my heart, because my Dad was in the Army for 11 years."

Here is your chance to talk the Bulldawg nation. What do you want to tell them?

Burnette-" I would tell them I hope they are ready for a couple of National Championships. I mean they are some really good players at school now and this recruiting class we having coming in is awesome."
