·2 min read

Texas A&M has landed in the Top 5 school list for the 4-Star safety prospect in the 2023 recruiting class out of Saint Louis, Missouri, Marvin Burks Jr., who is presently ranked as the 25th ranked safety prospect in the country, and the 8th ranked player in the state of Missouri according to 247Sports. Burks Jr. is entering his senior season at Cardinal Ritter College Preparatory in Saint Louis, Missouri, where he has played at both the strong safety position on defense, and wide receiver on offense, exemplifying his versatility as an athlete.

Burks Jr. has narrowed his school options down to five programs so far, which include Texas A&M, Missouri, LSU, Oklahoma, and Ole Miss, with the latter seen as the current favorite according to multiple recruiting sites. So far, he has officially visited Ole Miss on June 3rd, Texas A&M on June 17th, and Missouri on June 24th, which is now listed as his final visit to date.

As a prospect, Marvin Burks Jr. displays eye-popping athleticism in coverage which is aided by his time at wide receiver. he exhibits a solid combination of speed and strength in his downhill pursuit as a box defender, with great lateral ability and quickness once he sees his target while finishing his tackles at a high rate.

Texas A&M is in need of some good news on the recruiting front, and snagging a blue-chip prospect like Marvin Burks Jr. could possibly create some momentum in the process.
