Deante Burton (b. July 12, 1994) is a local product who was one of the top contributors on the scout team during his redshirt season in 2012. He is looking to contribute as both a wide receiver and on special teams in 2013.

Burton helped Manhattan High School to earn an 11-1 record in 2011. He was named a first-team All-Centennial League pick as a senior and captured all-state honors as a defensive back.

He had 20 receptions for 327 yards, five touchdowns and a pair of interceptions in 2011, and also added 216 rushing yards and three scores. Returned a punt 63 yards for a touchdown in the playoffs against Dodge City.

Burton totaled two punt return scores on the year and had 244 yards receiving in 2010 with three touchdowns.

A two-year starter at both wide receiver and defensive back, Burton lettered three seasons for the Indians and compiled a 30-3 record during that time. He might be, in my opinion, the steal of the 2012 recruiting class.

Don't think we landed this player just because he's a homebody who wanted to keep living in his hometown. His film tells a different story. We had to fight some people off for this kid, including Oklahoma State, UCLA and USF.
