Minnesota is making its way through East Texas.

Keontae Burns is the latest target of the Gophers, which offered fellow area prospects Tamauzia Brown, Darwin Barlow and Carl Williams, among others, recently.

Burns, a 2019 ATH from Pittsburg, also holds FBS offers from Arkansas, Iowa State, Kansas, Louisiana-Monroe, Missouri, North Texas, SMU, Southern Miss, Texas State, and UTSA.

Last season Burns finished with 34 catches for 631 yards and five touchdowns. He also rushed for 124 yards and had an interception. Pittsburg finished 6-5, falling to Rusk in the first round of the playoffs.

Minnesota competes in the Big 10 Conference. The Gophers finished 2017 with a record of 5-7.

Burns, like all juniors, is first eligible to sign with any team that offers him beginning in December 2018.
