When it comes to Georgia talent, it seems like there is a never ending supply of talent. With so many blue-chippers around it's easy to overlook a guy like McDonough (Ga.) Union Grove athlete Travis Burks.
The 5-foot-11 ½, 188-pound receiver and cornerback impressed at the NIKE Training Camp in Athens and quickly picked up offers after the camp from Ball State and Jacksonville State. He's not added any other offers at this point, but he's hoping to change that this fall.
"I had a pretty good summer," Burks said. "I went to Auburn, Georgia Tech, Georgia's 7-on-7 camp and I was going to try to make it to Memphis, but I couldn't. The coaches at all the schools said they really liked me.
"Tulane sent me a letter this week, telling me they're really close to offering. I've also just started to get a lot of stuff, too, from Clemson. I wouldn't mind getting an offer from a big-time school like that."
Burks said at this point he's going to play the recruiting game and see what develops.
"I'm just going to keep my options open," Burks said.
On the field, Burks is his team's No. 1 option.
He is expecting to be an impact prospect at both receiver, corner and possibly safety.
"I'm a lot better on defense," Burks said. "I've drilled a lot on reading the offense this summer. I now know where they're all going and my reaction times are a lot better."
