Texas WR Changing Enrollment Plans?

Mansfield Timberview HS WR, (and Boise State commit), Aaron Burks (Arlington, TX) will be hoping to lead his team to another victory in the 4ATexas State Playoffs this Friday. He was recently in Boise for his official visit during the Utah State game. He spoke to BroncoCountry.com about the visit and the possibility of changing his enrollment plans..

Mansfield Timberview HS WR Aaron Burks (Arlington, TX) was in Boise just a little over a week ago as he watched the Broncos defeat the Aggies of Utah State. "The visit was real good," he said. "It was a lot of fun." He's still a firm commitment. "I'm 100% committed to Boise State."

Burks (6'4, 180, 4.50) was accompanied by his dad on the visit. "We got there about an hour before the game," he said. "We went to the game. We went to the locker room after the game and talked to some of the coaches," he added.

Aaron is a former QB and he enjoyed seeing the trick plays that involved the WRs throwing TD passes. "I liked those trick plays," he said. "That keeps the game fun." His dad also told Chris Petersen about Aaron's days at QB. "My dad told Coach Pete I can throw the ball a bit," he said. "I was a QB before I became a WR. We might be trying that trick play this week in our game."

One aspect of the trip that stood out to Aaron was having dinner at Chris Petersen's house. "Being there and seeing all of the coaches at Coach Pete's house was a great moment," he said. "I was looking for the family atmosphere when I made my commitment. They are all family at Boise State."

Burks was recruited by (Assistant Head Coach) Brent Pease. "Coach Pease is a real straight to the point guy," he said. "One thing I really liked was that he has great coaching techniques," he added.

Aaron has been watching the Broncos all season. "The Broncos are playing real good," he said. "I feel like the coaches really have them battling out there. I always TIVO the game if I'm not at the house."

The standout WR is already stocking up on Boise State gear. "I bought a Boise State hoodie before the trip," he said. "I bought a shirt and a beanie while on the trip."

Burks and his teammates have found themselves in the second round of the 4A Texas State Playoffs. "We're 6-5," he said. "We played Fort Worth Southwest last week. We won 35-21," he added. They had to alter the gameplan due to the weather. "We really had to run the ball because it was so windy that night."

A big challenge awaits Mansfield Timberview this week. "We play Denton Ryan this week," he said. "They've only lost two or three games. We have to control their passing game and keep their offense off the field when we have the ball."

Burks has been the big playmaker at WR for his team. "I have about 30 catches for 450 yards receiving," he said. "I have 4-5 TDs," he added.

Aaron is hoping that he'll be able to enroll early at Boise State. "I'm hoping to graduate early and go through spring ball," he said. "I talked to my counselor in September and I'm taking my second semester of English online right now." As of right now, it looks like there is a strong possibility that Burks will be in Boise for spring football.

What does it mean for Aaron to be a Bronco? "It means a lot to be a Bronco," he said. "The offense is so good and that makes it even more special to be a WR. It's really an honor to be a Bronco," he added.

It looks like Aaron Burks will fit right in when he arrives at Boise.
