Pittsburg’s Keontae Burns Receives Two Power 5 Offers
Keontae Burns added two more schools to his list Wednesday.
Burns, a 2019 ATH at Pittsburg, tweeted that Arizona and Nebraska became the latest schools to offer him a scholarship.
Burns (6-3, 182) also holds major FBS offers from Alabama, Arkansas, Baylor, Houston, Missouri, and Texas Tech.
Last season, Burns played several positions for the Pirates, but was most effective at receiver, racking up 631 yards and five touchdowns. Pittsburg finished 6-5 with a first-round playoff exit.
Arizona competes in the Pac 12 and finished 7-6, falling to Purdue in the Foster Farms Bowl. Nebraska competes in the Big Ten and finished 4-8 in 2017-18. The Huskers have a new coach in Scott Frost, who led UCF to a 13-0 season a year ago.
Burns, like all juniors, is first eligible to sign with any school that offers him beginning in December.
