USC Among Schools of Interest for 2022 WR Caleb Burton

June 23, 2020

While several Elite 2022 wide receiver prospects call Southern California home like Servite’s Tetairoa McMillan‍ and Mater Dei’s CJ Williams‍, USC’s already pursuing many of the top wide receivers across the nation. One of those targets is 4-Star Austin (TX) Del Valle HS wide out Caleb Burton‍.

When we made plans to meet up with current USC Tight End commit Lake McRee‍ in Lake Travis, we reached out to Burton III to catch one of his workouts and talk after about his USC offer and interest in the Trojans.

What we immediately learned from his father and Del Valle head coach Charles Burton, was Oregon was his dream school and hadn't shown much interest. Surprising considering Burton has 36 offers and will certainly earn more by this time next year.

But Oregon lost its OC Marcus Arroyo and WRs Coach Jovon Bouknight after the 2019 season, so the evaluation process began after new coaches were hired. As of today, Oregon still hasn't offered and we spoke to Burton three weeks ago.

Burton shared why Oregon was his dream school.

“Oregon isn't THE school, but it's a school I was hoping to get an offer from since last year,” he said.”When I was young, I just loved watching them play and it was more than just the uniforms. They had Marcus Mariota, De’Anthony Thomas and I was in love with their pass concepts and how they moved the ball. Those are a few reasons why I like Oregon."

Arroyo was Burton’s Oregon contact, but he was hired as head coach at UNLV.

Another school out West Burton has interest in USC.

“I like USC a lot,” said Burton.”I like where it's located and I like Coach Keary Colbert. He's really cool dude and I was actually supposed take a West-Coast run before CovId-19 started. We already had the flights booked and everything. The plan was to visit USC, Cal, Stanford and maybe a few more."

An offer besides Oregon Burton desires is Clemson and he's been in contact with the 2018 National Champs. Florida is another school he's interested in, but hasn't heard from, yet.

USC SCOOP shot video of Burton working out and it doesn't take long to understand why USC, Alabama, Georgia, Ohio St., Oklahoma, Stanford, Texas, ASU, Arkansas, Auburn, Baylor, Colorado, Cal, Boston College, Duke, Florida St., Georgia Tech, Iowa St., Kansas, LSU, Miami, Michigan, Nebraska, North Texas, Notre Dame, Oklahoma St., Ole Miss, Penn St., Purdue, SMU, Syracuse, Texas A&M, Texas Tech and Utah have all offered the Rising Junior.
