Burnett, ranked the No. 7 tight end in the 2022 class, out of nearby Servite HS, had committed to the Trojans back in March, choosing USC over Arizona and Arizona State.
At that point, the Trojans effectively shut down their tight end recruiting, feeling they had found their guy for this class.
And Burnett was indeed an ideal fit for what USC is looking for at the position. A talented pass-catcher and athletic player for his size, he fits the mold of what the Trojans want at the Y position -- the spot presently manned by wide receiver Drake London.
So what does Burnett's decommitment ultimately mean for the program?
Well, time will tell.
First, it's certainly a setback to lose a talented local prospect. Second, given the timing and the fact that USC hasn't continued to recruit other tight ends, it's likely the Trojans don't look to replace him with another prospect at that position in this class.
Considering it's July wouldn't that be a pretty strong statement that they couldn't replace him? I have got to think it's still a little early.
I don't follow ucla recruiting at all. sc
@San Clemente Good for you.
He's Arizona legacy, Servite 3 to AZ. Mac up next.
If you get a chance can you update on ASewers scandal from your U of A perspective?
What really happened is Burnett got butt hurt because the Trojans brought in Epps (Texas TE). Didnt feel the love. Tmac may be up a mild cat in the end, but receivers are not an issue for SC.
AJ Jones a Cat!
Former UCLA commit this, AJ Jones guy. not highly recruited but UCLA and ASU wanted him.
something fishy in Tucson, as in Jed Fisch, spinning a yarn to recruits and with Herm stepping on his dick, with both feet, there is a potential for a football revival.
@BigBallss The guys lil Neu got are better than Jones.
@ATLBRUIN Win the south once to catch up to the Cats...lol
