WATCH: Freshman Feature Episode 13 - Ja’Den McBurrows

Breaking down the school, stats, recruitment, projection, and more for the true freshman cornerback.

Sometimes there are recruits that the Michigan Wolverines recruit much higher than the recruiting services rank them. Names like Khaleke Hudson, Devin Bush, and Kwity Paye were recruits that the services didn’t necessarily laud as super high-star talents, but Michigan prioritized otherwise. The three-star cornerback out of Florida, Ja’Den McBurrows, falls in line as being treated similarly.

Playing at the powerhouse school St. Thomas Acquinas, he surely had the national attention, as well as a national offer list. Teams like Alabama, Ohio State, Penn State, and LSU extended a scholarship, showing the gap between offer and recruitment ranking.

As a physical, quick defensive back, he should provide some depth for the nickel cornerback position right away. He’s not too undersized at 5’10, but will need to grow into the position, only being listed at 165 pounds at this point in his career.
