Tiger Football Land First 2013 Commitment
JEFFERSON CITY -- Tiger football received its first commitment for the 2013 recruiting class Saturday from someone close to home. Jefferson City High school linebaker Joe Burkett gave his verbal pledge after attending Missouri's junior day on Saturday.
Burkett, who is a 6'3", 200 pound weakside linebacker, is also one of the states best pole vaulters. With his jump of 15-feet,3-inches, Burkett finished fourth at the state meet last spring. Remember, the commitment Burkett made to the football team today is a verbal, non-binding commitment.
