USC Commit Keyan Burnett Made a Chase-Down Tackle That Would Make DK Metcalf Jealous

I could really get used to having football highlights like this virtually year-round. In addition to FCS college football being played this spring, there's high school football currently going on in California.

And this past weekend, 4-star USC commit Keyan Burnett chased down a kid to make a play that would make even DK Metcalf stop and stare. The best I can tell, Burnett comes from about 15 yards behind and 40 yards across the field from this guy to hawk him down before he reached the goal line. The angle he takes is literally as perfect as it could possibly be.

And by the way, Burnett's play not only saved a touchdown on that play, but ended up preventing Damien High School from scoring at all. And then he hauled in a 69-yard touchdown grab for good measure.

San Gabriel Valley Tribune — Damien had a golden opportunity to score midway through the second quarter when Gio Russo recovered a Fifita fumble at the Damien 3 and took it all the way to the Servite 3 yard line.

After three pass attempts by Dylan Gutierrez were incomplete, Drake Gonzalez’s 24-yard field attempt was no good. Servite took full advantage on the next play when Fafita connected with USC-commit Keyan Burnett for a 69-yard touchdown pass that increased Servite’s lead to 20-0.

I think this kid's got a pretty bright future in this whole football deal. Burnett is ranked as the No. 8 tight end in the country and turned down offers from Miami, Washington, Cal and others in favor of USC.
