Burns came to LSU after transferring from Georgia and has since played in 13 games, making nine starts. He has made 57 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss, and one interception during his career on the bayou.
Burns has been a leader in the secondary for the Tigers this year. He has helped a ton as LSU has transitioned to a brand new secondary as most starters were all transfers, and everyone had to learn a new system as a new head coach Brian Kelly brought his staff with him.
Burns will also help lead another thin and relatively new secondary next season. Burns is a big reason LSU has a chance to have a ten-win season in Kelly’s first year. His ability to help transfers and incoming freshmen learn to play at a high level at LSU doesn’t go unnoticed.
