Burks Headed To Big 12

Alec Burks cut his list of school to two and shortly after made his collegiate decision. He's headed to the Big 12.

It's been a big week for the Colorado Buffaloes.

They scored a verbal commitment from North Hollywood (Calif.) Campbell Hall standout Keegan Hornbuckle on Tuesday. Then, Thursday they received word from Alec Burks.

"The reason [I chose Colorado] is because of the coaches and they players and just the whole atmosphere at Colorado," Burks, of Grandview (Mo.) Senior, told Scout.com.

At the beginning of September Burks had narrowed his list to Colorado, Kansas State, Missouri State, Santa Clara and Wichita state. Burks, however, said that his decision ultimately came down to Colorado and Kansas State.

Burks and Hornbuckle make up the Buffaloes current 2009 recruiting class.
