Per his father, Orlanda, South County (Lorton, VA) linebacker Oren Burks is now up to eight scholarship offers. Nebraska is the most recent school to come through, extending an offer to the 6’4″, 195-pound junior this past week. Boston College, Duke, Maryland, N.C. State, Virginia, Virginia Tech and West Virginia had offered previously.
Burks enjoyed a big-time junior season, finishing with 128 tackles including 22 tackles for loss on a team that reached the Group AAA, Division 5 state championship game. The Stallions star is primarily being recruited as an outside linebacker, though some schools have mentioned safety as a possibility.
With the exception of Nebraska, Burks has visited the rest of the schools that have offered at least once.
