Tennessee Tech sign second CFC100 Taylor Burns

Every prospect takes a unique road to the next level, and CFC100 Taylor Burns followed the trail from New Brunswick to Virginia where he turned into a star offensive linemen for the Episcopal Maroons. Now after weeks of speculation about his final decision, he finally revealed Tennessee Tech as the next stepping stone in his football journey. Burns joins CFC100 Kail Dava as the first Canadian duo to ever suit up for the Golden Eagles, which should guarantee a nice spike in television numbers outta Canada.


We’ve seen every sort of path emerge while following the top prospects, and Burns went on an FCS binge acquiring six DI offers. The Class of 2019 prospect is following in a line of Canadian prospects who’ve starred at Episcopal, including CFC100 Luiji Vilain who committed to Michigan, and CFC100 Jonathan Sutherland who committed to Penn State, so it’s not surprising he received a lot of attention. He also had offers on the board from Delaware State, Bryant University, Howard, Sacred Heart and North Carolina Central, with the first four locking down one Canadian last signing season.

Burns says he chose the Golden Eagles because they provide everything he needs to succeed at the next level,

“I chose to attend Tennessee Tech because they offer me everything I need out of a college.” he explains.

“That being they have great facilities both academic and athletic, a degree with meaning and an amazing coaching staff that brings a lot of experience. When I went for my official visit earlier this month I felt a strong family bond from both the players and coaches. I plan on majoring in Marketing.”

Tennessee Tech are members of the FCS Ohio Valley Conference, and are looking to build from the bottom up after finishing 2018 with a 1-10 record.
