Burden plans to make his commitment on Oct. 20.
Burden previously played high school football for Cardinal Ritter College Prep in St. Louis, Missouri. This season, Burden is playing for East St. Louis High School in East St. Louis, Illinois, which is located just across the state line.
Burden committed to Oklahoma nearly a year ago, but changed his mind this summer. Surprisingly the Sooners are no longer among his top schools.
Burden has received major interest from powerhouse college football programs across the country. He is the top-ranked recruit in Illinois and the second-ranked wide receiver recruit in the country.
Kirby Smart and Georgia football have 17 commitments in the class of 2022, and Georgia already has commitments from three wide receivers. But there’s always room for an elite prospect. Burden would rank as Georgia’s top-ranked recruit in the class of 2022.
