According to photo Burris and Pleasant Grove Athletics posted on social media, the four-star defensive end's "Top 3" is Texas, Oklahoma and Texas A&M.
"I wanna thank God for putting me in the position i am in," Burris said on Twitter. "I also wanna thank my family and coaching staff for sticking with me. Last but not least I wanna thank all the universities that gave me an opportunity and believed in me. One step closer.
