It was a two-offer day for Pittsburg's Keontae Burns.
Burns, a receiver and cornerback for Pittsburg, posted on Twitter that Kansas and Missouri offered him scholarships.
The Jayhawks and Tigers became the seventh and eighth schools to extend offers to Burns. He also has offers from Arkansas, Iowa State, SMU and others.
Burns finished 2017 with 631 receiving yards and five touchdown catches. Defensively, he had 57 tackles, an interception and a forced fumble.
Kansas finished this past season 1-11 and was winless in the Big 12. Missouri finished 7-6. The Tigers won six straight games to end the regular season before falling to Texas in the Texas Bowl.
