C9sclv8hdossyhekm5ob
Four-star athlete Shawn Burgess-Becker of Coconut Creek (Fla.) Monarch - an Alabama commit - said he plans on taking official visits to Alabama, Miami and Auburn.
"I'm open to all my teams, but I'm a really solid commit," the 6-foot, 194-pound Burgess-Becker said. "Things can change over time and it's a long seasons, so who knows what will happen at the end of the year."
If all goes as planned, Burgess-Becker will be at Alabama as a student-athlete in January. He's being recruited by the Crimson Tide to play at defensive back and knows the early he gets there, the better.

"Getting there early will help a lot," he said. "It's a good advantage to get on the field earlier, learn the playbook and stuff like that. I know I'm going to have to go down there and earn the spot and that they're not just going to give it to me. I agree with that, but I'm just going to do whatever it takes to get on the field."
Though Burgess-Becker intends on riding out his recruiting process through completion, Alabama is where he wants to be.
"It's a winning school," he said. "They have disciplined players, coached very well. Coach Saban is cool but when it's time to get down to business he can get demanding. I like that too because it prepares me for the next level."
Burgess-Becker finished last season with 107 tackles and 2 interceptions and 700 rushing yards with 9 touchdowns.
