At 6-foot-5 with good strength and a good looking jumper, Burton has always had the talent, but this spring and summer he has taken his game to a new level.
"I'm just ready to show how much skill I have and get seen more by college coaches," said Burton. "I just really want to show everybody what I can do."
According to Burton his improvement is a credit to simply working hard.
"I just got in the gym," Burton explained. "I realized what I had to do, and when I had to do it. I worked out 3-4 times a day and just got ready."
When it comes to his recruitment, several schools are showing Burton significant attention.
In terms of a timeline for his decision, Burton has a pretty good idea of when a decision will happen.
"I would hope to make my decision in the fall, or maybe during my senior basketball season," said Burton.
For one school to get his commitment, Burton says he will have to like everything about the place.
"I am looking for good coaches and a great atmosphere," explained Burton. "I just want to go to a place that makes me feel at home."
Currently Burton is seen as the No. 74 player overall in the class of 2014 and the No. 20 small forward.
