Because of his play, there interest coming from a pair of Ivy League schools. TPI caught up with Burck to get the latest recruiting updates.

After a quiet junior season, Strake Jesuit wide receiver Davis Burck is hitting the gridiron hard to gain the attention of college coaches. His game play through three games is noteworthy and so far he is hearing from a few colleges.

"I have gotten some looks from Princeton and Columbia," Burck said. "I am going to send out a few more tapes to see if there is any more interest out there for me."

Burck is looking to Ivy League schools because he is very strong when it comes to academics. His current GPA is 3.98 and he scored a 34 on his ACT. With accolades like this, the schools that are interested in him are best suited.

"The main thing I am looking for is a good mix of academics and athletics," Burck said. "I am doing well in school and I don't plan on making it to the NFL. I want a school that I can get a degree from so I can get a good job for my future."

During the summer Burck had the opportunity to visit one the schools that have interest in him. 

"I went to football camp at Columbia this summer," Burck said. "I love the atmosphere in New York. I like how they take football seriously, but they also understand that their student-athletes have other things going on."

To date, Burck has 16 catches for 272 yards and seven touchdowns. Burck and the Crusader squad will open District 17-5A play against Cy Fair on Saturday.
