2014 pro-style quarterback Jabe Burgess unofficially visited the Arkansas Razorbacks on March 10th.

Burgess has offers from only two teams. The teams to have offered on him are the Illinois Fighting Illini and the Tulsa Golden Hurricanes.

It is projected that Burgess is heavily interested in Arkansas and Illinois.

Also, he has not received offers, but is receiving interest from the Arkansas Razorbacks, the Auburn Tigers, the Nebraska Cornhuskers, the Ole Miss Rebels, and the South Florida Bulls.
