One Arkansas quarterback stock is on the rise after an outstanding performance at the Elite 11 camp this week.

Greenbrier's Neal Burcham finished in a three way tie for MVP of the Camp and picked up another offer Friday evening from an in state school, Arkansas State.

"I got the offer yesterday," Burcham told AStateNation.com. "I'm very excited about it."

Burcham is currently holding offers from Arkansas State and Central Arkansas. The talented signal caller will take his first ever trip to the Jonesboro campus this coming Monday.

"I spoke to Coach (Hugh)Freeze this morning," Burcham said. "I will be going up there Monday to check things out."

While Burcham hasn't been on the campus, he has been talking to Coach Freeze a few times in the last couple of weeks.

"I know that they have a great offense that throws the ball a lot," Burcham said. "I really like Coach Freeze from just talking to him on the phone."

Burcham, a 6-foot-3, 180-pound signal caller, is being told that more offers are most likely on the way.

"Thats what everyone is telling me," Burcham said. "My goal is to continue to throw the ball, continue to work hard everyday and let everything else work out on its own."

Is there a chance that Burcham pulls the trigger on his visit to Jonesboro on Monday?

"There is always that chance," Burcham said. "My plans are to wait things out and make my decision after my senior season. I want to concentrate on having a great senior year."

Burcham will take an open mind into his visit Monday.

"If Arkansas State is the best fit for me and my family, it would be a great option for me," Burcham said. "We will just have to wait and see."
