Tyler Burke is all set to visit two schools that are making a change in conference affiliation in the years ahead: Maryland and Rutgers. His last visit also took him to an in-state program.
The Coatesville (Pa.) outside linebacker has offers from both the Terrapins and the Scarlet Knights. They have recruited him hard and convinced him to make quick trips to experience what it is like for football players during the spring.
"I'll be at Maryland on Thursday and then Rutgers on Saturday," Burke said.
His most recent trip was to Pittsburgh a couple of weekends ago.
"It was real good," said Burke. "They offered me like a week after that or something like that. It went good. It was a good basketball game. They upset Syracuse."
Burke said that he is not on the cusp of making a decision but is hoping to narrow things down in a big way before the start of his senior season. From there he hopes to take at least some, if not all, of his official visits.
With eight offers altogether Burke said he is still in regular contact with all of the schools recruiting him. Burke added that he is not sure of what schools he will visit after his Saturday trip to Rutgers.
