Junior Season Highlights
The Knights reached postseason play with Shawn Burgess-Becker doing damage on both sides of the ball. He compiled 518 receiving yards and five touchdowns, adding 72 tackles and five interceptions on defense.
Burgess-Becker is a natural fit at cornerback, where he displays enough toughness and closing speed to compete at the highest level of college football. He gets airborne and attacks the pass, showing off excellent hands in traffic.
His straight-line speed is extraordinary, making him a legitimate threat to score anytime he gains possession. He is an effective big-play receiver but remains unpolished as a route-runner and displays better instincts on defense.
He is viewed as a strong Miami lean, and the local squad has shown him plenty of love throughout his recruitment process. Burgess-Becker recently received offers from Auburn, Notre Dame, North Carolina and Mississippi State.
