With that program.. (same on that produced Kyle King DE at MSU and Charlie Spegal).. we want this kid. And I think it's fairly obvious the staff does, as well.

Kinda figured with their program. He seems to have a Jason Spriggs build in high school.  Wonder if he plays basketball or any other sports?

Came off the bench. Probably split time with JV/V as a SO. Fairly common.

Actually he sat the bench on varsity all year and didn’t play jv. The talk this summer was that he probably wasn’t going to play basketball this year.

Oh.. then why did the stays say otherwise? Is there two L Burgess?

I honestly have no clue. Only going off these stats.

I like the fact that he at least played basketball.  That should help with footwork, agility, and coordination. I completely understand if he wants to focus on building a football body instead of conditioning and maintaining a bodyweight more conducive to basketball. Sounds like an interesting prospect!

Or were you just saying in general? 

I was speaking in general. He played in 18 varsity basketball games and averaged 2.6 ppg. In most games he'd play a minute here or there but would sit the majority of the game.

scored 47 points, quite a bit for a bench player. He played a fair amount in the game I linked, it seemed by the write up. Not sure why he wouldn't play JV then.

He never scored 47 points in a game. 47 points was his season total. He scored 5 against Herron. New Pal is in my schools conference and we played them this summer too. I know New Pal quite well. I also know why he didn't play JV but I'm not getting into that.

I realize that lol 47 is a fair amount.. like he played some, you don't score 47 by just hardly ever playing, varsity basketball game aren't long enough to do that.

It just depended on the game. My point I was originally trying to make was that he only would play in a quarter or two most nights. He would likely be there starting 5 this year if he plays but as of this summer it didn’t sound like he was going to but who knows. I do think he’d be a really good pickup for IU football though.

Are hand written letters the norm?? That’s pretty impressive to me.

After witnessing our OL for 4 weeks now I know why all the hand written letters. Can we get a volunteer for Allen....he must have a hand cramp given all the recruiting needed in this area lol.

Just judging visually from those pictures….kid has a frame that a D1 strength coach would salivate over. Good natural size for high school, but a D1 program could hang 15 lbs of muscle on him before his sophomore year.
