Burgess-Becker Nets Bama Offer

Alabama has offered Class of 2015 defensive back Shawn Burgess-Becker.
It's his first offer, but that should change with the two-time defending BCS National Champions in hot pursuit of the rising junior.
Last fall, Burgess-Becker recorded 63 tackles and five interceptions playing safety while directing the defense and making the calls.
This spring he has made a name for himself as a wide receiver at several 7-on-7 events and earning a spot on the Top Offensive Performers from the Miami NIKE Football Training Camp.
When we spoke to him at the NLA 7-on-7 event last month he called Miami his dream school because it was his dad's favorite program growing up. He wanted to hear from Florida, but it was the Crimson Tide who beat those schools to the punch.
"It feels good. It's a dream come true. They are the first, so it means more. I really like Coach (Mario) Cristobal. He is a well-spoken guy. He looks out for everyone and he seems like he gives everyone a fair shot," remarked an elated Burgess-Becker.
Did he ever think he would net an offer from Alabama after word got out of his off-season performances on the camp circuit?
"No. I was just coming out to these camps and 7-on-7's to do what I had to do. I thought some of these events were pick up games, but after I saw the competition I knew I could play with some of top players," noted Burgess-Becker.
Where does the Tide stand?
"They were the first one to offer, so I'm always going to think highly of them. I dreamed about playing for some other schools, but Alabama was the first one that approached me and I will keep them in mind," stated Burgess-Becker.
He is scheduled to participate in the Miami Rivals Camp Series presented by Under Armour this Sunday at North Broward Prep.
