Burney is a 5'10, 205lbs running back with tremendous speed, very good balance, very good acceleration and tremendous agility. There were even rumblings that he would transfer to Florida HS power Dwyer school but those have been put to rest as of now. His other current offer is from Big East member Rutgers. He was a more than capable pass catcher and often used in slip screens.
As seen in his Nike Camp highlights from the beginning of this month, he looks to be in better shape than he was in 2010. Not that he was out of shape but has gained muscle while maintaining his top end speed.
This is another example of the Panther coaching staff evaluating talent early and getting on the radar of an out of state prospect. Burney is the 6th confirmed scholarship offer for the 2012 recruiting cycle as Bill Curry and staff are expected to sign between 15-18 players next Spring.2010 Highlights 2011 Nike Camp Highlights
