Quarterback Braxton Burmeister of La Jolla, Calif., began a four school visitation swing Tuesday that could lead to a decision in the near future. His first stop was at South Carolina.
Burmeister (6-1, 190) flew across the country with his mother to meet with Will Muschamp and Kurt Roper and take a closer look at what the program and the university have to offer.
“I spent the whole day out with them from about 10 a.m. until practice finished up,” the former Arizona commitment said. “Had a good time. I spent a lot of time with Coach Roper and it was a good day. I feel like I fit well in the offense. I got to see practice and see how they run things and I like how they run it and the offense is a good fit for me I feel like. The facilities are awesome and the campus is really nice. It’s a little spread out but I like it a lot. And they have this academic building that’s really good, too.”
Burmeister appears to be one of three quarterbacks Muschamp is focusing on for the 2017 class at this point, the others being Jake Bentley of Opelika, Ala., and Jelani Woods of Ellenwood, Ga.
Never miss a local story.
“They said there’s not going to be a lot of pressure until there has to be, they’re going to keep it off,” he said. “They want me to know they want me bad. I think they are going to take two in this class. There’s no real timeline until they feel like they need to let me know. They said they are taking two to help with the depth at QB. (USC) is up there, it’s high on my list.’
Burmeister is going to visit Utah this weekend, Indiana early next week and Washington the following weekend, and a decision could be made after that last visit.
“If I feel like I know where I’m at and I feel like a hundred percent with a certain place then it could possible happen,” he said. “If not I’m going to wait till I feel 100 percent with someone.”
Last season Burmeister passed for 2,771 yards, 31 touchdowns and seven interceptions. He also ran for 20 touchdowns.
