On Monday afternoon, we saw 4-star wide receiver Desmond Fitzpatrick re-commit to Louisville after opening his recruitment back up, which is rare. Could we see a similar situation with Trinity star Rodjay Burns? The difference here is that Fitzpatrick opened his recruitment back up, while Burns switched his pledge from Louisville to Ohio State. Now, it seems like he could be wavering on that decision and realizing that the grass isn’t always greener.
That’s because Burns admits that he’s having thoughts of flipping his commitment back to Louisville, telling the Louisville Courier-Journal that “it weighs on me every day.”
Does Louisville have a legitimate shot to get Burns back in its class?
“I just don’t have an answer for that question,” Burns told the Courier-Journal. “I’m still thinking things over. I get so many phone calls that people don’t even give me time to think about it.”
Rated the No. 72 cornerback in the 2016 recruiting class in the 247Sports composite rankings, Burns earned his Ohio State offer on Dec. 4. He then took an official visit to Columbus the weekend of Jan. 22, then flipped to Ohio State two days later.
But now that Burns has had some time to think since publicly announcing in favor of the Buckeyes, he’s had some second thoughts as to whether leaving home is actually the right decision.
“I’m just going to wait, and everyone is going to see (what I decide) on signing day,” Burns told the Courier-Journal.
On Monday night, Ohio State got a verbal commitment from a 4-star cornerback from New Jersey. In this post about the commitment, it says that Urban Meyer’s 2016 class “also includes cornerback prospects Kareem Felder of Baltimore, Md., and four-star Wayne Davis of Norfolk (Va.) Lake Taylor.” Oh.
