Gilbert (Ariz.) Hillcrest Prep four-star small forward Jordan Burks has requested a release from his National Letter of Intent with Ole Miss, he tells On3.

The news comes after the Rebels hired Chris Beard as their new head coach earlier this month.

Burks is the No. 163 overall prospect and No. 33 small forward in the 2023 cycle, according to the On3 Industry Ranking. He is also the No. 16 player in Florida and a three-star recruit.

On3 rates Burks higher than other recruiting services, according to the Industry Comparison. Per On3’s 2023 basketball rankings, he is a four-star recruit, the No. 110 overall prospect, No. 25 small forward and No. 10 player in Florida.

The 6-foot-9, 180-pound small forward originally chose the Rebels over offers from Mississippi State, Missouri, Texas Tech, and others.

Jordan Burks On3 Scouting Summary

“Jordan Burks has a basketball player’s frame; long arms, broad shoulders, he has a projectable frame that will take well to a college strength program. Burka has a smooth jump shot. He needs to clean up the mechanics and his balance points, but the release is consistent and he is confident off the bounce and the catch.

“Burks is a fluid athlete with some pop. He needs to tighten the handle and learn his reads. Finding his spots on the floor and working toward those would help grow his game. There is so much natural talent here with tools and upside.” — Jamie Shaw, On3 national recruiting analyst
