Sports Xpress Recruiting Xclusive: Matt Burke
January 22, 2013By Kenneth True of Nations Elite
Matt Burke is seeing his stock soar heading into National Signing Day. Burke is coming off an appearance in the U.S. Army All-American Game. The 6’6 220 lbs. TE from West Palm Beach (FL)’s Cardinal Newman HS.
The U.S. Army All-American visited Harvard January 11th-13th, and claims offers from Florida International, UMASS, Georgia State, Middle Tennessee State, Marshall, Western Michigan, Harvard, Dartmouth, Yale, Princeton, San Diego State, and Boise State.
Some of the programs looking to get into the fray for Burke is Vanderbilt, Boston College, North Carolina, Auburn, Rutgers, Purdue, Florida, Tennessee, and Wisconsin.
The tall rangy TE has also already visited San Diego State and Boise State back in December and says “They were both awesome.” One team no longer recruiting Burke is Kentucky of which he said “I had a very high interest level in the Cats but they told me they will not take another tight end in this class.”
