Brooks Burgin out of Highland Park HS, is a dual threat Quarterback who has all the makings to be a great player at the next level. Texas State is the first to extend an offer and will look to capitalize on the benefits of being his first.
"Coach Shultz called me yesterday and extended the offer. I was really excited to get my first offer finally on the table. Coach Schultz had came to practice earlier this spring and I guess he liked what he saw," said Burgin about getting his first offer.
Burgin had an excellent season as a Junior, recording 3,500 passing yards and 31 TD's, 707 yards and 19 TD's rushing, while being named District 10-4A MVP and Dallas Morning News' New Comer Player Of The Year.
"I am a dual threat QB, who is good at eluding pressure and extending plays, while still very accurate at throwing on the run," said Burgin on his strengths as a QB.
Brooks weighs in at 6'1 190lbs and runs a 4.7, almost identical to Tyler Jones coming out of HS, and posses many of the same characteristics. Clearly he is the type of player Texas State would like to see at the helm. With the 'Cats being first to extend, that could go a long way for Head Coach Dennis Franchione and his staff.
"I would like to go to a program that has a prestigious football program, a nice easy going atmosphere, and where I can have a good relationship with the coaches."
