Alabama now has a chance to pull off a late steal with one of the nation’s top prospects.
Brian Burns, a five-star defensive end from American Heritage High School (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.), will take an official visit to Alabama on Jan. 28, he told SEC Country. The visit will last through Jan. 29. Burns will then visit Florida State before making his commitment on National Signing Day.
As of right now, Alabama trails Georgia, Florida State and Florida, but it certainly is good news for the Crimson Tide to get a prospect to take a late official visit because anything can happen when a recruit visits.
Alabama certainly has some catching up to do, but the Tide have taken a big step here with hosting Burns on campus.
