Exposure not a problem for Burke

CHANDLER, Ariz. -- Kyeler Burke doesn't have the pile of scholarship offers of some other 2016 prospects. In fact, he's still awaiting his first. That will come in time, though. An key offensive cog at perennial powerhouse Chandler (Ariz.) Hamilton High School, Burke won't hurt for exposure.
Already a few major colleges are aware of his existence. Contact has been made. Burke is just waiting for it to intensify.
"I've gotten a lot of stuff from Kansas State," Burke said. "They came out here during spring ball, too. I talked to some of the coaches. Other than that, it's been Arizona State and some other local stuff. Nothing too serious yet."
The manner in which K-State was attracted to Burke is the manner in which many schools may be in the future. That's the wide receiver's hope anyway. He knows the situation in which he finds himself is an advantageous one.
"K-State was out here probably watching Caleb [Peart] or some of my other teammates. But after they came out, they saw me. That's when they started sending me mail Hopefully, they'll contact me soon now that they're allowed to do that."
Burke has visited both Arizona and Arizona State in the past and is hoping offers from the in-state programs materialize in the near future. There are ties in place with the Sun Devils, after all.
"My dad is an ASU alum, so I'm down there all the time," Burke said. "I didn't get to go to ASU spring game, but I've seen the facilities a bunch already, so I know what they have."
Burke attended elite camps at both Arizona and Notre Dame this offseason. He is being recruited to play exclusively slot wide receiver at the next level.
In Burke's first game as a junior, he caught seven passes for 132 yards and a touchdown. He also carried the ball seven times for 90 yards and a score.
