The top-ranked football player in the state of Kentucky and the No. 1 player on Mark Stoops’ 2021 recruiting big board sat down with Freddie Maggard and Nick Roush to talk at length about his recruitment. Jager Burton revealed he will officially visit five schools — Alabama, Kentucky, Clemson, Ohio State and Oregon. The Frederick Douglass offensive lineman hopes to announce his college decision prior to his August 24th birthday.
“There’s honestly no leader. I’m pretty even on all five,” he said. “I’m hoping the official visits — from what I’ve heard they make it really clear that you’ll know where you wanna be. I hope I get some clarity and I’ll realize by that date, and if not, I got plenty of time. I’ll push it more into my senior year.”
