  Draft Scout by Conference

  Luther Burden III has been in Columbia for several months now, adapting to his new surroundings. He'd be like every other college freshman, a little nervous to be away from his family. It's different for Burden, though. He's the hope of Eli Drinkwitz and Missouri football, the wide receiver from St. Louis who fans expect to become an all-time Tigers great after spurning Oklahoma, Georgia and Alabama for MU.

Burden said he doesn't go out much around Columbia, but when he does, he sometimes gets recognized by the public. For some, the attention could get stressful, but Burden said he's handling it well. "It's a good feeling," he said. "Just for you to go outside and someone knows you and recognizes who you are, everybody wants that. It's a good feeling." His name is already renowned as the anticipation grows toward his first collegiate football game on Sept. 1 at home against Louisiana Tech. Tigers fans understand the potential is limitless. Todd and Ashley Good were the first to arrive at Burden's signing event with their six-year-old son Breven in tow for a chance to meet Missouri's fourth-ever five-star recruit. "I'm looking forward to his career," Todd Good said. "Easy chance to meet a player, it's not every day you get to meet somebody who could be going in the NFL someday." - Columbia Daily Tribune
