One of the most talented defenders in the state of Indiana in 2016, Carmel (IN) High senior Noah Burks had double-digit scholarship offers to choose from. From the minute he stepped foot on the University of Wisconsin’s campus, however, he knew where he wanted to play college football.
In this exclusive Scout Spotlight video, you'll see why Burks is considered one of the most talented defenders in the state of Indiana in 2016. Bringing a combination of aggression and athleticism, Burks biggest strength is his length, outstanding first step and his ability to defend the edges.
A key figure on one of the top programs in Class 6A in the state, Burks impacts the Greyhounds as a linebacker and on special teams, blocking four punts last season. Lauded for being a smart, technically sound player, Burks has the ability to be an early contributor for the Badgers if he continues to improve on his 6-3, 210-pound frame.
Interviewed by Scout, the nation's No.40 outside linebacker shares his thoughts on what NFL player he most resembles, when he fell in love with football, how he’s improved since his junior season and much more.
