2022 Del Valle five-star wide receiver Caleb Burton announced on Tuesday evening that he has trimmed his list of 38 offers down to 12 programs.
Burton is one top wide receivers in the nation for the class of 2022 and his new list of schools reflects his talent accordingly.

The Longhorns have been in on Burton’s recruitment for some time now and they are the lone in-state program to make the cut for his services.
While Texas certainly holds the proximity advantage and have the nation’s top quarterback already in the boat, they will have to out muscle some of the best recruiters and programs in the country to earn Burton’s commitment.
Burton recently announced that his junior season was prematurely cut short due to an injury, so he will now be focusing on rehabbing and getting back on the field for his senior season.
Due to an injury in my first junior game of the season I will be out for the remainder of the year. I am looking forward to coming back Stronger and Better. Gods Plan✊— Caleb Burton III (@calebburtoniii) September 30, 2020
A consensus five-star prospect, Burton is ranked as the No. 10 prospect nationally and the No. 1 wide receiver in the 247Sports Composite rankings.
