NC State was the first school to offer the 6-foot-4, 195-pound Burks, and on his tour, he reeled in one from the Blue Devils.
"NC State was our first trip since they were the first to offer," said his father, Orlanda. "That was a great visit. They really opened our eyes to what they offer there."
After having the opportunity to visit six schools in just nine days, Burks is one step closer to making a college decision. A decision his father hopes he can make before South County's first football game of the 2012 season, and remain firm with until he signs on that dotted line come National Signing Day. "When we make a commitment, it's final. That's it."
"The ones high on his list we have been to about two or three times already. He hopes to close out the list soon, but there are a couple suitors we need to visit with, like Penn State and maybe Wisconsin."
Burks plans to attend Virginia Tech's spring game this weekend, according to pop. His former teammate Devin Vandyke signed with the Hokies for the class of 2012. Stay tuned for more.
