Trotwood-Madison defensive back Cameron Burrows will make a strong play for top honors in the state of Ohio for the 2013 class, and his offer list reflects his elite status. Three more schools added their names to his offer list in the last week, bringing his total to ten.
Notre Dame was the first new offer Burrows picked up this week. He received the Irish's tender shortly after spending time in South Bend.
"At first it was supposed to be a visit, but as the visit got close they said they wanted to see me work out to see if they were going to offer me or not. I went up there on Sunday, worked out on Monday and they really liked me."

Burrows worked with cornerbacks coach Kerry Cooks and connected with the Irish assistant. He also came away with a positive impression of Notre Dame's campus.
"It's a nice campus and it's not like every other college," Burrows said.
Shortly after receiving the offer from Notre Dame, Burrows' coach sent him notification of an offer from UCLA. His contact with UCLA had been limited prior to the offer, so the news came as a surprise.
"It gave me a lot of interest and made me want to look it up, so I did a little research on them," Burrows said. "I'm open to go anywhere. I just want to go somewhere I will play and it is a good opportunity for me."
Kentucky was the third new offer for Burrows this week. Although their Lexington campus is the closest of the three new offers to his Daytona-area home, Burrows has yet to visit the Wildcats.
"My coach was supposed to take me down there, but we never went," said Burrows, who has had previous contact with Kentucky. "Their coach came to our school one time and my coach went to Kentucky."
Burrows plans to be on the road more in the month of July, with several college visits lined up over the next few weeks.
"I'm visiting Ohio State on July 11 with my mom, my brother and my dad," Burrows said. "I'm going down to Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Alabama and Auburn for camps this month."
Burrows acknowledged that Ohio State is still the team to beat for his services, but he does not expect his final decision to be made until his senior year.
