Junior linebacker Tyler Burke of Coatesville, Pa. picked up three early offers, but has remained quiet since that point. Now, after completing a season that saw him finish with more than 200 tackles, schools are once again showing Burke a great deal of interest.
"Recruiting has been real busy," said Burke, who is 6-foot-4 and 240 pounds. "Schools can't really talk to me much when they come to my school, but Penn State, Stanford, Maryland, West Virginia, Virginia, Pittsburgh, Connecticut and Rutgers have all come in."
Offering Burke early were Maryland, N.C. State and Temple, and he is confident that more will be added to this total.

"All of the schools I said that stopped by seem pretty close to offering I think," said Burke. "After Signing Day for the seniors, I think I will get a better feel of who wants me or not."
During the fall, Burke attended a game at Maryland to see them take on N.C. State.
"It was cool seeing all the fans," said Burke. "N.C. State won by a last second field goal, so it was a good time."
Burke hopes to make another visit this coming weekend, but with his busy schedule additional visits will be difficult in the near future.
"I think I'm going to Pittsburgh on Saturday, but I play basketball and playoffs start soon, so I don't have much time for visits," said Burke, who did mention at least one other school he would definitely like to visit when he has more time. "I would maybe want to go out and see Stanford. It's really far, but I heard it's great out there."
On the field last fall, Burke was a major part of his team's successful season.
"We made it to the state championship game, but we lost to North Alleghany," said Burke. "For myself I finished the season with more than 200 tackles and a couple of touchdowns and interceptions, so it was a pretty good season."
