No 3. Treylon Burks solidified his position in Arkansas football lore

When it’s all said and done, the Razorbacks’ stud wideout may be considered one of the best players to ever wear a Razorback uniform.

Despite being bothered by injury/injuries during the game, Burks played at an elite level, just as he has in multiple games this season.

Against Missouri, Burks did a little bit of everything, racking up 7 receptions for 129 yards and a touchdown.

We saw him take a handoff from KJ Jefferson and then optioned the ball to a trailing “Rocket” Sanders and scored the touchdown.

We’ve seen Burks throw the ball a few times this season and a run the ball on end-arounds.

It could be argued that he’s one of the most talented and skilled players we’ve seen at the wide receiver position and maybe the best overall player in Razorbacks history.

Burks has an incredibly difficult decision coming up in the bowl game: will he play or will he sit out in preparation for the 2022 NFL Draft?
