Sunday Quickies: Jager Burton Edition

New, comments

The four-star offensive lineman from Lexington makes his decision this evening.

It’s a huge day in the Kentucky Football recruiting world, as four-star offensive lineman Jager Burton announces his decision.

Burton, who plays at Frederick Douglass High School in Lexington, will decide between Kentucky, Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State, and Oregon.

Burton is deciding at 6 p.m. this evening in a ceremony from KSBar in Lexington, a popular gathering place for Kentucky fans. That would seem to bode well for the chances that Burton decides to stay home and play for the Cats, but you never know for certain.

If Burton decides to stay home, he’ll join the likes of other offensive linemen like Drake Jackson and Landon Young who were highly-sought after prospects that ultimately decided to play for their home-state school.

It certainly helps that Burton’s high school teammate, wide receiver and fellow four-star prospect Dekel Crowdus, has already committed to Kentucky.

Picking up Burton will certainly continue Kentucky’s formula of building a strong offensive line and solidify the position for the next few years.

Let’s hope he picks the Cats tonight at 6.
