Four-star defensive end Derek Burton out of Muskogee, Okla. has three schools on top for his services. Who stands out to the 6-foot-3, 250-pounder and why?
"I'd say Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Tennessee are my top three for sure," he said. "I really like the coaching staff at Oklahoma and coach Shipp. I like Oklahoma State because my dad went there and I grew up liking them. As for Tennessee, I know they aren't playing well this year, but they've got great tradition and I know I want to get down there and visit."
Burton plans to take his official visits during December and January.

"I'm still trying to take it one step at a time, as I'm considering visits to Tennessee, Texas Tech, Tulsa, Kansas State, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State," he said. "I get a lot of calls from those coaches every week and enjoy talking to all of them."
