Monday Quickies: Jager Burton Delays Decision

New, 20 comments

Kentucky’s recruit is moving his decision past late August.

It appears one of Kentucky Football’s recruits is pushing back the announcement of his commitment. Jager Burton, a four-star offensive guard and Lexington native, took to Twitter on Sunday afternoon saying he will push his commitment to a program back from August 24th.

Of course, this can’t be all that surprising since COVID-19 is a significant pillar holding Burton back from visiting with schools of interest

The nation’s third-ranked offensive guard has a list of Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State, Oregon, Penn State, Texas and of course Kentucky. The local connection combined with Burton’s elite skill would make landing the top-talent a massive success for the Kentucky football program.

COVID-19 could actually provide an advantage for Kentucky, considering traveling is ill-advised for the foreseeable future and Burton will most likely be more comfortable in his hometown playing for the school he grew up around.

Burton did not release a new announcement date, but instead just said he’ll be pushing it back past August 24th. Stay tuned for more details.
