Entering his senior year, Aaron Burbridge has had a bit of an up-and-down career as a Spartan wide out. He was there for the poor quarterbacking season of Andrew Maxwell in 2012 which ended with a Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl victory and he’s been present during the emergence of Connor Cook.

Burbridge hasn’t been absent, however, in recent years as he’s only taken a step back from his freshman season production.

With many big names departing over the past couple of years at wide receiver such as Keith Mumphery, Tony Lippett and Bennie Fowler, it’s time for another guy to come out of the shadows and step up for the Spartans.

Last year, Lippett came in and became the most sure-handed pass-catcher in the Big Ten and this season, no one really knows who is going to step up at the position.

Although Burbridge is already a well-known guy, but he has yet to emerge onto everyone’s radar in terms of production and stardom at MSU. During his first three years in East Lansing, he has recorded 80 catches for 916 yards and three scores.

I’m confident he will approach all of those numbers, besides maybe receptions, this season alone.
