Personal Life

DJ Burns captured the nation's attention during NC State's run to the 2024 Final Four. The big lefty – who transferred to NC State after starting at Tennessee and Winthrop – averaged 18.3 points, five rebounds and 3.5 assists in the Wolfpack's tournament games. He also poured in 29 pounds in the team's Elite Eight upset of Duke. His on-court celebrations and confidence became instant viral hits on social media, too. “I prefer winning,” Burns said. “So however you come at me, I’m gonna do whatever it takes to win. I don’t care if that’s passing or scoring. I don’t care if I don’t get touches at all. I care that we win, because when we win, everybody gets noticed.” At 6-foot-9 and 275 pounds, NFL scouts were also drooling over his athleticism. Senior Bowl director Jim Nagy posted that he could not help but think about Burns "kick-sliding in pass pro or getting out on pulls," and he noted that he has received text messages from multiple general managers and assistant general managers and a director of college scouting confirming that there would indeed be interest in Burns should he decide to pursue a path to the NFL.
