Arkansas State loses two senior running backs after this fall, the Red Wolves already have one commitment from a tailback and one from an athlete.
It appears that Hugh Freeze and his coaching staff will take at least two, maybe three guys that can play the position.
AStateNation.com recently caught up with Burks to get his thoughts about ASU.
"I was happy and excited about my first offer," Burks said. "I have been waiting my entire life for this."
While Burks admits that he doesn't know a whole lot about the Red Wolf Football program, he hopes to change that in the near future.
"I'm trying to set up a visit there in the next month or so," Burks said. "I want to check things out and see what they are all about."
Burks, a 5-foot-9, 188-pound athlete who runs a 4.42 forty, currently has two offers, one from Arkansas State and the other from UAB.
ASU wide receiver coach Tyler Siskey is recruiting Burks for the Red Wolves.
"Coach Siskey has been telling me a lot of great things about the school," Burks said. "I look forward to visiting Jonesboro."
