Idaho star excited about Army offer

A little over two weeks ago Dallas Burroughs, a 5-10, 175 pound speedster out of Meridian, Idaho, landed his first scholarship offer from one of the service academies. Along with the offer from the prestigious military school, several other programs have also been expressing a great deal of interest. Get the latest news inside.

Approximately two weeks ago, Dallas Burroughs, a 5-10, 175 pound athlete out of Meridian, Idaho reported to Scout.com that he'd received his first scholarship offer. "Army offered me," the Rocky Mountain High star confirmed with ArmySports.com. "I was pretty excited when I received the offer. It feels really good to get that first offer out of the way."

The 4.44 speedster went on to give us a brief synopsis of how things initially got started between him and the Army coaching staff. "I'm pretty sure they (Army Coaching Staff) heard about me from the combine that I went to in San Antonio, Texas," Burroughs shared with ArmySports. "Since the combine we've been talking a good bit. And one day they called and offered me a scholarship. On the following Friday after they had offered me, one of the coaches came by the school to check on me. I think it was the offensive coordinator that stopped by."

Although Burroughs is extremely excited about his first offer from Army he has no intentions of bringing his recruitment to a close anytime soon. He simply wants to see what everyone else has to offer. As of date, Boise State, Idaho, Utah State, and Oregon State are just a few others that have been expressing a great deal of interest in the talented rising senior.

Last fall Burroughs hauled in 48 catches for 582 yards and four touchdowns for Rocky Mount High School. Stay tuned for much more on this talented speedster.
