The tackling machine that is three-star linebacker Victor Burnett (6-1, 225, 4.65) from Culver City, Calif., decided on what school he is going to take his tackling skills to continue his football and his academic career.
Washington is the lucky school that Burnett chose over a host of other offers.
"I chose Washington because I'm feeling the coaching staff," Burnett said. "There is an opportunity to play at Mike linebacker next year and all the progression they are showing.
"I also took trips to Oklahoma and I went on a trip to Arizona," Burnett said. "So I chose Washington over those two, but I'm still taking two more trips to Oregon State on January 15th and probably Nebraska. I'm only going to take those two trips just to make sure I'm making the right decision.
"But I'm real fired up about Washington," Burnett said. "It's the overall atmosphere, it is the city of Seattle. It so great, it's the people and the coaching staff. They seem so secure and they were there for me the whole time. That's what I like about Washington.
The Huskies land a player in Burnett is a ball hawking middle linebacker. He broke the school record for career tackles with 376 and counting.
The amazing thing is Burnett strained a calf muscle and had to sit out some games, but he will be back for the opening round of the playoffs this coming weekend against CIF Southern Section powerhouse, Compton (Calif.) Dominguez.
In his six games this season, 87 tackles, 12 tackles for loss, five sacks, three forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and one interception that he ran back to the house for a touchdown.
The Huskies land a player who earned a spot on the Rivals.com California Preseason Top 100 team landing as the Golden State's No. 55 prospect at any position.
