Trinity Christian Academy class of 2021 wide receiver Marcus Burke names his top-five schools via his Twitter account in March.

His top-five include Georgia, Florida, Miami, Penn State, and Georgia Tech. Burke was offered by the Bulldogs this past fall on September 17th.

The 6-foot-3 and 170 lbs junior is rated a four-star wide receiver prospect by 247Sports as well as ESPN and Rivals. 247Sports lists Florida as the favorite.

A good-sized wide receiver that’s long enough to play on the outside, but agile enough to also work inside. Should fill out more once lifting in college. Can get vertical in a hurry. Makes relatively average quarterbacks look good as he doesn’t drop many passes with his daunting catch radius. No verified speed times, but seems to have a second gear which allows him to get behind defensive backs. More of a finesse player right now that would rather run around someone than through someone. Will need to improve blocking. Must also get more comfortable with taking a hit especially if he’s going over the middle. Has the potential to be a multi-year starter and impact player at a Power 5 program. Frame and skillset suggests he’s someone that should eventually be playing on Sundays if he continues to develop his game.
