    D.J. Burris
    Height: 6'3
    Weight: 275
    Forty: Not Listed
    School: Kenton HS, Kenton OH
    List: tOSU, Michigan, Iowa, Notre Dame, Wake Forest

    Burris was a first team all division III selection in 2003...

    One of Ohio's top junior offensive linemen is D.J. Burris of Kenton. Burris got a rare honor back in the spring as he was one of only a few juniors to get an invite to Nike Camp. "It was pretty exciting," he said. "I know not many juniors get invited."

    I just got back from <!--Default For Indiana is to ignore-->Indiana. I wish we had more time to drill. During the 7-on-7s I played linebacker just to stay in shape, just to stay on top of things.

    Burris showed well at the camp, running a 5.31 40 on a slow track at OSU with 4.97 shuttle. Where he really impressed was the bench press, where he did 32 reps at 185.

    "I thought I was going to do more than 32 reps of 185," Burris said. "I've done 225 28 times."

    Burris is known for his strength as he took second in the state power lifting meet in his weight class, where he bench pressed 375 pounds and put up a 660 squat. Right now, the 6-3, 275 pound Burris is slated to play at guard on offense and DT on defense, but none of the colleges recruiting him have specified where they would want him to play.

    I don't claim any insider information on D.J....yet. Coming from the Kenton area, we have a lot of mutual friends and I imagine I'll get something af value before we are all done.

    The first thing that stuck out to me was that Wake Forest was on his final list. I think that they are a HUGE player in his recruitment because of Ben Mauk going there. I know a lot of the Kenton football players and fans have actually made the trip to N.C. to watch Ben play. I have been under the impression that D.J. is a Buckeye fan, but I feel Wake is neck and neck with us (assuming we even offer).

    D.J. has tOSU, Michigan, Iowa, Cincinnati, Minnesota, and West Virginia as his top 5. Ball State is the only school to offer but WVU is said to be close. tOSU coaches have told Burris he will be a camp decision after they evaluate him.

    Burris is considered the #40 ranked prospect in Ohio.
