Buckeye Nation, welcome Cameron Burrows to the class of 2013. He has announced that he is “taking his talents to Ohio State”.
Burrows is the No. 1 player in the state of Ohio, and he hails from the city of Trotwood where he plays cornerback plays for Trotwood-Madison H.S. He helped lead the Rams to a state title last season.
Burrows is a solid first recruit, rated as the overall No. 7 junior in the country.
He is 6'1 and a 190lbs. He has good speed, and he has a 3.5 grade point average.
He plans on enrolling early so he can jumpstart his chance to win playing time. He spoke about growing up as a Buckeye fan, and for him to get an offer it was “just an honor”.
The last player offered a scholarship from Trotwood was Will Allen from the class of 2000. He currently plays for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
This is a good first signing for Urban and the class of 2013. It will show the other potential recruits that Urban isn’t just getting lucky this year, and that he has already started the 2013 campaign.
Burrows bringing his 5-star status to the Buckeyes and announcing early should convince others to follow suit -- and sooner than later -- since OSU is only expecting to sign around 15 players in their 2013 class.
His committment may also open up a renewed pipeline to Trotwood's rich talent pool -- something Jim Tressel did not have, or seem to want during his OSU tenure.
Burrows is a good friend of Trotwood senior safety Bam Bradley.
Bradley holds an OSU offer, but is also seriously considering Pitt and Stanford. Trotwood coach Maurice Douglass wonders if the Buckeyes may already have too many safeties, and his input might lead Bam elsewhere.
Junior linebacker Mike McCray doesn't have an offer from Ohio State yet, but the No. 9 junior in Ohio is hoping for one and said Thursday that the Buckeyes would immediately jump into his top three.
McCray visited Ohio State in December with Burrows and Bradley.
