Al-Terek McBurse is one of the nation's hottest running back prospects. After rushing for over 2,300 yards at over 12 yards an attempt, he turned himself into a big time player. Now it's coming down to crunch time for this Winter Springs (Fla.) standout. He graduates this month and plans on enrolling at the school of his choice next month. It appears it's down to five schools with a decision coming very soon.
McBurse has taken two official visits so far, Nebraska and Purdue. He will trip to Kansas this weekend. It's all coming to head and now the coaches are flocking to Winter Springs to meet with McBurse.
"Coaches have been coming in and out," McBurse said. "Kansas came by today. Nebraska and Purdue are coming tomorrow. I know USF, Iowa State and a few others are coming later this week.
"I had a good visit to Purdue. I met the new coach and he's coming to see me tomorrow. He wants to meet my parents. Purdue told me that they wanted me to come in and make an impact. I can do that with their depth. I also met with their academic people and took in a game."
With Purdue and Nebraska in the books and tripping to Kansas this weekend who will get McBurse's final two visits?
"It's looking like Georgia Tech and USF. That is if nothing changes. Right now I am open and I have to get this thing sorted out because I have to fill out admissions papers soon. It will depend on if I can get in those final two visits because I would like to decide around December 15th. If I don't get them both in I will likely postpone the decision."
