Early Tuesday morning, Kobe Burse announced on Twitter that he has committed to Miami University.  The RedHawks landed the 6-foot-1 196 pound wide receiver from Muskegon, Michigan as their eighth commit for its 2016 class.  Burse may become Miami's second wide receiver commit for 2016 to go along with Stori Emerson.

Kobe Burse caught up with Hustle Belt to explain why he believed Miami was the right place for him.

"I really like [Miami's] campus and the coaches are the best.  I can see myself there."

Kobe Burse played his football at Mona Shores High School, who has now produced three MAC recruits.  Burse joins Darece Roberson and Hunter Broersma, who both committed to Western Michigan earlier this year.

Burse could be a very underrated prospect for the RedHawks as he has been shadowed by Hunter Broersma at Mona Shores.  The RedHawks will really look to Burse and Emerson in the future to help with the aerial attack.  Miami's pass offense ranked second in the MAC, but with the departure of quarterback Andrew Hendrix and leading receiver David Frazier are both big hits to the RedHawks' passing attack.  Burse's versatility also allowed him to play some free safety at Mona Shores, which may also be implemented into the RedHawks' defense.

Burse's main goal at Miami is to help bring home the championship.  Here are some of Burse's highlights from his junior year, courtesy of Hudl, that could help the RedHawks bring home some hardware.
