Denzel Burke Scottsdale Arizona Athlete and Ohio State Cornerback

Denzel Burke Scottsdale Arizona Athlete and Ohio State Cornerback


Denzel Burke committed to Ohio State last week in what adds another top corner back to the class of 2021. The Scottsdale Arizona Saguaro product is considered the 8th best athlete in the class nationally and the 3 best player in the state for that year. He was recruited for Ohio State by Kerry Coombs and Corey Dennis. Arizona, Auburn, Arizona State, and Colorado were also pursuing his college commitment. Ohio State was the odd Big Ten school in a list of Pac-12 programs but pulled out the win.

Burke is a 4.7 40 yard runner with a great wing span who could add some build at the next level. Has very good ball skills and could play either side of the ball, although Ohio State is bringing him in as a defensive back. He currently weights 190 lbs. and is 6” tall. He had 313 yards on 12 receptions last year in addition to 2 picks after sitting out half the season due to a school transfer.

He joins quarterback Jack Miller as recent recruits from Scottsdale Arizona going to Columbus.Burk comes from the powerhouse program of Saguaro High School which has produced Georgia prospect Kelee Ringo and Washington to Arizona NFL star Byron Murphy.

Coombs was the main recruiter who has been in contact with Burke ever since he came back to Ohio State after a short time in the NFL. Head Coach Ryan Day was also involved in getting Burke to become a Buckeye next year.

Burke was unable to make a visit to Ohio, similar to many other recent recruits, but felt comfortable with the coaching staff and wanted to be a part of the outstanding 2021 class.
