Walton defensive end Brandon Burrows was impressed at how quickly Georgia called him after he suffered a season-ending-before-it-even-started injury. His high school coach lauded Bulldogs coach Mark Richt for doing “the right thing.”
On Wednesday, Burrows, a 6-foot-4, 238-pound rising senior who tore an ACL in spring workouts, repaid Georgia for sticking with him, becoming the Bulldogs’ 13th commitment. He chose the Dogs over Florida. Oklahoma, Clemson and N.C. State also were interested in Burrows.
“He’s a special player and a special person — polite, respectful, honest, conscientious, all the things you want your son to be,” Walton first-year coach Rocky Hidalgo told the AJC in May.
Burrows is the 28th-ranked defensive end in the country, according to Rivals, and the 38th nationally, according to Scout.
