CB Denzel Burke (Official Thread)

    ESPN stat leaders has Denzel Burke tied for 3rd in the country with 6 passes defended. Cam Brown has 5 PD in that same list.

    If you'd told me as the season started that we would have our corners improved that much from last year, I'd have said we got a top 10 Defense and be Top 3 in the nation ranked. :pissed3:

    Burke is the real deal, to play like this as a true freshman is just unreal. I don't think many fans appreciate how well he's playing at 18 at one of the hardest positions to play. Everyone just needs to cheer this youngster on, he's way ahead of his time.

    Minn 25 + Ore 35 + Tulsa 54 = 114 passes

    Yeah, but when they throw 114 passes in just 3 games you get a lot of chances for PDs, etc. In addition, when you are a true Freshman (i.e. don't have reputation as being a shut down corner) they tend to throw more your way too.

    Just sayin': He looks to be the "real deal". I hope he sticks around (and stays healthy) for 4 years so we can see just how great he can become.

    Buckeneye I lead, you follow.

    He won't be here for 4 years.

    Not at this rate.

    Nope...By the time he a JR he's probably going to be about 6'1" 205 ish...Ideal size and long arms. He will be an All-American, I have no doubt. And, I still believe JK Johnson ends up being a superstar. Definite no-fly-zone once we get a DC who knows how to make QB's uncomfortable.

    You can't win an award decided 80% in the preseason as a freshman.

    Agreed. Delphit won his over Okudah on pre-season hype alone... bc it certainly wasn't from on-field production and results that year.

    Burke reminds me of a mix of Bradley Roby and Damon Arnette. But he's MUCH farther ahead than the 2 alum at the same point in their careers. But he loves talking trash as a mental tool against WRs, and has high confidence in his abilities, combined with a short memory(all traits I love in my CBs, especially when their play backs up what's coming out of their mouths). To think that we have him for 2 more years, and we still also have the talents of Johnson and Hancock in the same class as well

    Is Spencer Rattler still getting Heisman hype?
