2016 Butler WR Julian Burris has one offer and more schools are eying his talents

2016 Butler WR Julian Burris (5-11, 182) has one offer and more schools are eying his talents on the football field...

"I have an offer right now from Colorado State," Julian Burris told JCFootball.com recently. "Utah State and North Texas have also been in contact with me."

As a freshman last season, Burris totaled 19 receptions for 273 yards and two touchdowns and so far this season, in seven games, the sophomore has hauled in 15 receptions for a team-leading 280 yards and two touchdowns.

"I'm consistent with the catch," Burris noted. "I'm a good blocker and make the play when called my team calls on me. On the field, what I do best is help my team by doing whatever I can and I refuse to go down on first contact."

This offseason, Burris got to work on honing his skills and he feels that has helped him tremendously this fall.

"I worked a lot on my release at the line for the outside and also my route-running and timing with my quarterbacks," Burris added.

As a prep, Burris enjoyed a solid career at Kell High School in Marietta, Georgia, but he was unable to qualify, so he chose the best program he could find.

"I chose Butler because of the history of their success on the field and off of it," Burris said.

He is on pace to finish up his academic work in December and he will have three years to play two following the 2015 football season.
