CBS Sports' Dane Brugler notes that Michigan State senior WR Aaron Burbridge's solid performance this season could earn him a "mid-round draft choice," like former Spartan's WR Tony Lippett.
Last weekend the Spartan's wideout hauled in eight receptions for 156 yards and three touchdowns in Michigan State's 35-21 win over Air Force. On the season, the 6-foot-1 209-pound Burbridge leads the team with 20 receptions for 374 yards and four touchdowns. Brugler adds that Burbridge "has looked like a fish in water with his size, body control and concentration." Sep 23 - 3:38 PM

Michigan State senior WR Aaron Burbridge caught eight passes for 156 yards and three touchdowns in the school's 35-21 win over Air Force.

It was a monster performance from Burbridge, who hauled in a spectacular toe tapping touchdown grab from Connor Cook. The two have great chemistry and Burbridge seems to have stepped in for Tony Lippett as Cook's top option. He can win in contested situations, and Cook is willing to test tight coverage. Burbridge has gone over 100 yards in each game this season.

ESPN's Brian Bennett thinks Michigan State senior WR Aaron Burbridge is set to become the Spartans' top aerial target in 2015.

Tony Lippett was one of two 1,000-yard receivers in the Big Ten last year. He and Keith Mumphery are both now in the NFL, giving Burbridge a great chance to ascend to "go-to receiver" status. "Perhaps Burbridge can fill it as the new No. 1 receiver," Bennett wrote. "He’ll need to take a major step forward after registering just 29 catches for 358 yards in ’14, but he is skilled and has Connor Cook throwing him the ball."

Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio is still looking for the "new face" of the Spartans' receiver group after no one failed to separate themselves in the team's first game.

Dantonio said Tuesday that he will give true freshman Aaron Burbridge a shot to stand out after he missed a large portion of preseason camp while recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery. Sophomore Tony Lippett made the most glaring mistakes Friday, a drop that turned into an interception and a lost fumble. Junior Bennie Fowler is the most veteran member of the group, but the position has gone through a face lift compared to last season.

Michigan State freshman WR Aaron Burbridge has missed a handful of practices due to an undisclosed injury.

Burbridge's eligibility was in question this offseason due to academics, but the freshman completed the appropriate summer school courses and reported to the team. Spartans head coach Mark Dantonio would not comment further on the injury, saying "I think it sets a precedent on how we're going to address other people and I just don't want to do that." Michigan State is very thin and young at receiver, so any time Burbridge misses sets him further behind.

Michigan State freshman WR Aaron Burbridge will likely be eligible for the 2012 season after completing summer school classes.

Burbridge was the state of Michigan's top high school prospect and is expected to report to Spartans camp on Friday. After losing B.J. Cunningham and Keshawn Martin to the NFL, Burbridge and other underclassmen will battle for immediate playing time.
