Three-star linebacker Victor Burnett (6-1, 225, 4.65) from Culver City, Calif., has had a very busy summer when he wasn't attending camps, he was picking up big time offers. His latest one came from all the way from the Southeastern Conference.
"My last offer was from Tennessee last Wednesday (June 24th)," Burnett said. "I was really excited about getting an offer from Tennessee head coach Lane Kiffin and if I go there having the opportunity to play defense for Coach Monte Kiffin, who is one of the greatest defensive coordinators of all time.
"I talked to my recruiter for Tennessee, James Cregg just this morning (June 29th)," Burnett said. "He just talked about how exciting he is about me and how much Coach (Lane) Kiffin liked my film. We're trying to set up an official visit for me sometime during the season."
Burnett also received a huge Big 12 offer recently.
"Oklahoma's offer was really exciting too," Burnett said. "I was driving to school when one of my coaches called and told me that Oklahoma was going to offer me.
"I called (Oklahoma defensive coordinator) Coach Brent Venables. He said that they enjoyed my film and they think that I am a perfect fit for them at linebacker."
Getting offers wasn't the only thing that Burnett had on his itinerary over the early part of the summer. He also attended UCLA's One Day Camp and USC's Rising Stars Camp during June.
"At UCLA they said that I'm a game changing linebacker," Burnett said. "They would make up their mind sometime during the summer.
"USC said they are going to evaluate my film. I brought Coach Ken Norton Jr. my extended highlight film. Coach Norton told me I made tremendous progress from day one of the camp to the next day two."
Does Burnett have a timeframe for his college decision?
"I don't really have a time limit for my decision," Burnett said. "I want to take all five of my official visits first."
Are there any schools that are in the running for visits?
"I plan to visit officially, Oklahoma and Tennessee, for sure," Burnett said. "During the summer, I will visit unofficially Arizona, Arizona State and Cal."
Burnett earned first-team all-CIF, first-team all-area and first-team all-league as a junior after breaking his own school single season tackle record of 149 that he recorded as a sophomore when he racked up 182 tackles his junior season.
