Alabama commit picking up interest 

February, 21, 2012
Defensive back Artie Burns (Miami/Northwestern) committed to the University of Alabama in December, but that hasn’t stopped the in-state schools, in particular Florida State and Miami, from recruiting him.

Burns remains solid to the Crimson Tide but admitted that he’s still looking at other schools. He’s taken two visits to Miami and one to Florida State since his commitment. Florida, USC and West Virginia have also offered him scholarships.

The ESPNU 150 Watch List member has been staying in contact with the UA coaching staff, calling assistant coach Jeff Stoutland, his main recruiter, once a week.
