Trotwood-Madison (Ohio) cornerback Cameron Burrows is one of the top prospects in the state of Ohio for the 2013 class. With college coaches being able to send mailings to junior prospects starting on Sept. 1, it is no surprise Burrows' mailman has been busy these last few days.
Among the schools that have been the most active sending mail to the 6-1, 195-pound Burrows are Florida, Tennessee, Oregon, Notre Dame, Penn State, Wisconsin, Northwestern, NC State.
"The other day there was a whole mailbox full of mail," Burrows said. "Penn State sent me a picture and on the side it said 'Cam and Bam together would be a great combo.'"
The "Bam" in Penn State's letter referred to Burrow's teammate and three-star prospect Bam Bradley, who lists Penn State among his favorites. Burrows also has interest in Penn State and is looking at a possible trip to Happy Valley this weekend.
"I'm going to try to go to the Penn State-Alabama game if I can find a ride because they invited me to it," Burrows said.
Burrows also got to a college game in week one of the season. Ohio State has been his leader since the start of the process, and he was in attendance for the Buckeye's home opener against Akron.
"They played pretty good and it was a good game, it was just a little hot," Burrows said. "I talked to Coach [Taver] Johnson, Coach [Greg] Gillum and Coach [Paul] Haynes."
The night before attending Ohio State's game, Burrows helped lead his team to a 41-8 win over Dayton Dunbar. Burrows has been lining up strictly on defense thus far this year.
"They haven't been putting me on offense much because of my knee, but my knee is getting back to healthy and I should be back on offense soon," Burrows said. "During the game I can go out there 100 percent because I am pumped up and don't feel anything. Sometimes in practice it gives out a little bit."
