Today we feature a young receiver that may not contribute immediately, but is a great player in a deep receiver room for the future.

Deion Burks - Fr.

Belleville, MI (Belleville HS)

5’11”, 180 pounds

Wide Receiver

2021 Projection: Likely Redshirt

Burks is a quality pickup in the 2021 recruiting class as a 3-star, but the depth the Boilers have at receiver means he is probably a year away from contributing. His senior year stats were not on MaxPreps, but as a junior he had a great year with 35 catches for 819 yards and 12 touchdowns. As a senior he helped his team reach the semifinals in their class int he Michigan State playoffs, finishing with a 9-0 regular season record.

I even a few highlights:

Really the only thing standing in Burks’ way is the number of talented receivers versa already in the program. He will get his chance in the future, however.
