Blogs > Burney's Bytes

Burney's Bytes will focus primarily on the local preps sports scene, but will also touch on some college and pro athletics, mostly in regards to athletes who hail and have played high school sports in Oakland County. My goal for the blog is to be conversational and anecdotal, a more relaxed and free formal take on high school athletics than you see in regular game day coverage.

The Heat Is On

Southfield offensive lineman Chukes Okorafor (6-foot-5, 295 pounds) could be the hottest football recruit in the state right now…..he's catching fire.
The current Western Michigan-commit has seen several additional big-time scholarship offers in the past couple weeks, including the likes of Florida and Arkansas of the elite SEC.
Rumor is that Maryland and a number of other BCS schools are also on the verge of offering this fast-rising talent in the trenches.
Okorafor can do so much and has an upside that is literally through the roof. He can line up at guard or tackle. He's good in run and pass coverage and is an incredibly hard-working and coachable. Oh yeah, this kid is a WORLD BEATER in the classroom as well, intending on studying medicine at the next level, along with PANCAKE 101.
Bottom line: wherever Chukes ends up playing on Saturdays next year, that team, university and its fans will be VERY LUCKY!!
