Class of 2013
Hometown: Milwaukee, WI
Twitter: @DeeBurton6
AAU: Terry Porter Elite
Ranking: ESPN #36
Committed: Marquette

- Burton is a Zach Randolph/Antoine Walker combo-lookalike.  He is a 6'5 left-handed thoroughbred with long arms and huge hands which allow him to grip the rock like a tennis ball.  He is strong as an ox and highly versatile as an explosive combo-forward.  First and foremost, he is a big-time rebounder who has the capability of grabbing a board high above the rim and in one motion busting out with the dribble to start the break.  Offensively, he handles the rock and can play the point-forward position if needed.  He attacks off the bounce and looks to create or finish at the rim on the top floor over defenders.  He can also shoot the ball from 3-point land and the mid-range.  Defensively, he can guard either forward position and he is a good shot blocker from the 4 and a great shot-blocker from the 3.  Big time player with a big time motor & high basketball IQ.
