Marcus Burris received his second SEC offer from Alabama on Friday and his recruitment is set to explode.
Burris is a product of Pleasant Grove High School in Texarkana, Texas,. The Crimson Tide’s offer is his third overall offer. After hearing Nick Saban tell him he was going home with an offer, Burris left Tuscaloosa with a crazy feeling.
“It was crazy,” Burris said. “Alabama has one of the best football programs and to know that I have an opportunity to play there is just a blessing.”
Arkansas is the only other SEC school to offer Burris. They extended their offer to him on Thursday. With Burris being a rising junior, he still has some room to improve, but his sophomore highlight tape shows he has the potential to be one of the highest ranked defensive tackles in the 2021 class as Nick Saban and the Tide see it in him and plans to get him on campus again this Summer.
“I was talking to coach Saban and he told me that I had tons of potential and that they were going to offer me,” Burris said. “I also got invited to some summer camps.”
