Miami Northwestern cornerback Artie Burns ended his commitment with Alabama last month and has a new top five.
"Right now I would say Florida State, Miami, USC, Louisville and LSU are my top five schools," Burns said. "I have no leaders but those five are the ones that stick out."
Burns elaborated on why the Alabama commitment didn't stick.
"It was a very stressful decision and I didn't feel comfortable checking out other schools while I was committed to one program so I decided to break it off," Burns said. "I felt a lot of relief when that happened and now I can take my time with the process."
Burns isn't talking with coaches right now, he's leaving that up to Northwestern head coach Stephen Field. Instead he's working on closing out a strong track season.
"I've been running 100 and 300 hurdles and I'm one of the fastest in the state," Burns said. "I would definitely want to continue to run track in college."
Because of his national track schedule it's not certain what Burns will do over the summer in terms of unofficial visits. He isn't sure if he'll be an early enrollee either.
"I might want to do another season of track but we'll see," Burns added.
