Daily Dawg Thread 13 October 2019: IMG Academy ball hawk Omar Burroughs, Jr. visited UGA on Saturday

Omar Burroughs, Jr. is a junior out of IMG Academy in Bradenton, FL and hails from the Savannah, GA area. Burroughs was one of several 2021 prospects that were visiting UGA on Saturday for the Bulldogs’ home game versus South Carolina.

The 2021 cornerback who goes by “OJ” doesn’t have an offer from the University of Georgia yet and he holds only four offers so far, but that could very well change in the near future given how he has played so far this 2019 season.

“OJ” set an IMG Academy school record in their game versus Northwestern High School this past Friday night, nabbing four interceptions on the way to a 24-7 Ascender’s victory.

On the year, Burroughs has nine picks as he had two versus Venice High School in IMG’s season opener back on August 23rd.

Although Burroughs showed his potential big-play abilities on defense as a sophomore last year with 10 interceptions and over 10 passes defended in 13 games, he is currently unranked and unrated by 247Sportswhile Rivals has “OJ” as a 3-star prospect for 2021, but if the 5-foot-9.5 and 170 lbs defensive back keeps playing as he did versus Northwestern, his star will be on the rise and I expect the offers as well.
