McLean lineman Burke Bartow visits Georgia Tech, awaits offers

(McLean OL-DL Burke Bartow, a second-team All-Met, is waiting for his first offer.)
After a breakout season in which he earned second team All-Met recognition, McLean OG/DT Burke Bartow has spent much of the spring taking visits to school and looking to lock down his first offer.

Bartow visited Princeton and Delaware’s spring games, and this weekend was down at Georgia Tech for the spring game in Atlanta. That visit, he said, provided a different feel than most of the others he had taken.

“About 18,000 people there,” Bartow said. “Which was a little bit more than the 50 to 100 that were at the other games. It was pretty exciting.”

There, Bartow, spoke with Yellow Jackets head coach Paul Johnson and defensive coordinator Al Groh, who said they would like to keep him in the loop for a possible offer down the road.

The interior lineman currently measures in at 6-foot-3, 340 pounds, but said he hopes to be down to 310 pounds for the start of his senior season. Georgia Tech would likely play him at nose tackle, he said.

Bartow, who also visited Temple, Penn and Old Dominion among others, said Georgia Tech would be a good fit because he hopes to major in engineering. Bartow said Groh asked him to come down to campus a third time for camp in June.
