Burston visiting for WFU spring game

Wake Forest will hold their annual Spring Football Game on Saturday, April 20th at BB&T Field. Curtis Burston, a 6-foot-2, 210-pound wide receiver out of Middle Creek High School in Apex, N.C. is expected to be one of the many recruits in attendance.

Burston hasn't yet received an offer from the Deacons coaching staff, but they two parties have expressed mutual interest and an offer could be on the horizon.

"I really like Wake Forest a lot," said Burston. "I've talked with Coach Jackson and Coach Stubblefield. I'm supposed to give them a call back today. I'm looking forward to this Saturday when I'm going over for the Spring Game."

"Recruiting has been fun so far. I have offers from Old Dominion and Hampton. This past Saturday I was at UNC's Spring Game. I talked to Duke yesterday and I'm also hearing from Appalachian state and East Carolina. It's getting serious now because the coaches can call me whenever."

In his second season as a varsity starter for Middle Creek, Burston helped led the Mustangs to an 11-2 record and a berth in the Class 4A state playoffs.

"Well, I ended up with 54 receptions for close to 850 yards at 14 yards-per-catch and seven touchdowns," he said. "I improved on the most on my yac, yards-after-the-catch. As a sophomore I wasn;t quite as explosive and a playmaker as I was this past season. I also was improved on my route running. I was named first team All-Tri-Nine Conference."

During the summer, Burston plans on attending one day camps at Virginia Tech, UNC, and Wake Forest. He's hopeful a good performance there will lead to an increase in his offer list.

"I'm still wide open," Burston said in regards to his recruiting. "I want to play wherever feels the most like home, but the most important thing for me is the education."

Burston is the former teammate of current Wake Forest player, Josh Banks. A three-sport athlete at Middle Creek, Burston also competes in basketball and track & field.
