If your team is looking for a linebacker out of the class of 2010 then it is a pretty good bet that they are currently evaluating Victor Burnett (6-0, 225, 4.65) from Culver City, Calif., he already has an offer from a Pac 10 school and there will probably be more before too long.
"Victor is a great player," Culver City recruiting coordinator Greg Goodyear said. "He's going to get a lot faster with his offseason regimen that he is on. He's already on a speed and strength program working with a professional trainer."
"Victor broke his own school single season tackle record of 149 that he recorded as a sophomore when he racked up 182 tackles his junior season," Goodyear said. "He is already getting a ton of attention from D-I school and he already has an offer from Arizona."
"UCLA, Oregon, Arizona State and Washington State have also shown interest," Goodyear said. "Actually most of the Pac 10 and all of the western schools are already on him."
"The amazing thing is we haven't really told many schools about Victor yet," Goodyear said. "They must have seen him on tape when they were evaluating someone else."
"Coach Mike Tuiasosopo talked to our new head coach Jahmal Wright and let him know that Victor had an offer," Goodyear said. "Soon after the verbal offer, he received a written offer from Arizona."
"What makes Victor so special is he is really smart," Goodyear said. "He not only gets good grades in the classroom (3.1 GPA), but he has a high football IQ and has tremendous football savvy."
"Victor has a great nose for the football and he's a good all-around athlete," Goodyear said. "He also plays on the basketball team and throws the shot in track."
"Victor is also a very responsible young man," Goodyear said. "He never misses a practice and is always on time."
Burnett earned first-team all-league, first-team all-area and first-team all-CIF honors for his junior season performance. His current bench is 340-pounds.
There will be more on this fine athlete as the new recruiting season starts to gear up just around the corner.
