Burgin Picks Up First FBS Offer

While a couple of Ivy League schools have had their eyes and potential offers on Highland Park, Texas quarterback Brooks Burgin, the Dallas Morning News Metro Newcomer of the Year and the Offensive MVP in District 10-4A last season leading the Scots deep into the playoffs, has had his thoughts on Division I FBS schools. He now has an offer from an FBS school as Texas State has offered.

This spring at Highland Park there was not quarterback competition as there has been in recent years. Burgin established himself as the guy last season.

As a junior in 2013, Burgin passed for 3,497 yards, rushed for 707 yards and scored 50 total touchdowns. He is capable of passing and running to move the football, and was impressive in testing at Nike and also had a solid day competing at the Elite 11 camp at AT&T Stadium.

During spring practice at Highland Park the 6-1, 190-pound Burgin was seen by coaches from Texas State, Oklahoma State, Northwestern, Rice, North Texas, Southern Miss, and UTSA.

In the Scots spring game on May 20, head coach Randy Allen kept a running clock and seemed more intent on protecting Burgin. The second-year starter had a passing touchdown and a rushing touchdown before basically calling it a night.

He said he is excited about the Texas State offer and is looking forward to going to their camp at DeSoto High School on June 12. He will also make it to the Mary Hardin-Baylor camp on June 8 at Rockwall High School, an event where Oklahoma State coaches are guest instructing including offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Mike Yurcich.

There are a few other camps he is looking forward to and he is also excited about the 7-on-7 competitions that the Scots are also involved in this summer.
