It is an incredibly deep year at running back in the state of Florida with such prospects like Trent Richardson, Jamaal Berry, Lamar Miller, Mike James, Dontae Aycock, Chris Thompson, and Mike Gillislee, just to name a few. Well, you can add another name to the elite list. His name is Al-Terek McBurse.
Through five games McBurse has rushed the ball 114 times for 1,453 games and 18 touchdowns. That's a whapping 12.75 yards per carry and 291 yards per game.
"This is the first time I have been the man," McBurse said. "I have always been playing behind a couple of seniors or older guys. I did last year and still rushed for 1,300 yards. I finally got the opportunity to show what I can do this season."
This season rushing outburst has generated a ton of attention as you can imagine. Things have certainly picked up for McBurse off the field.
"The phone calls have certainly picked up. It seems like I am getting an offer or two each week."
According to McBurse the most recent teams to offer have been Kansas, Wake Forest and South Florida.
"Some schools I am looking at right now are Georgia Tech, Wake Forest, UCF, Kansas, and Purdue.
"I am really liking Georgia Tech and South Florida. I went to the Georgia Tech camp and really enjoyed it. Then I brought my parents back. Education there is second to none and they have really been high on my list since then. They have made the biggest impression on me and my family. But I am still trying to figure things out.
"I like that UCF is close to home and I like how Wake Forest runs the ball, although I don't know much about them. Kansas seems like a good school too and I know I am supposed to visit Purdue. "
The only visit McBurse has right now is to Georgia Tech on November 1st. The rest of his official visits will take place in December and January.
"They all say I will have a chance to be the man next season. Well, except Tech because they have Jonathan Dwyer."
