Rivals 150 overall. Hearing this kid is going blue. Hip Hop Hooray.
alternate headline: man does job
6'-1" PG out of Columbus
Can he play corner?
If true, this is a solid pickup for the basketball team. Burke is a good ball handler and can provide scoring from the point guard position if Morris doesn't find his shot this year. You can't cheat away from Burke like teams have been doing with Morris. He is a top 150 type player who may move higher depending on his play this year. I don't believe he was the top option on his team last year so if he thrives in the feature role, he could rise in the rankings.
Scout has him as the #22 PG, 3-star. 5'11 155 lbs.
Some other google-searches made it sound like he was at one time committed to Penn St.?
"Spider" sound very very similar to "Sparty"
Coincidence? I'm starting to think not...
He's a good basketball player and MICHIGAN FANS should rejoice that we just got a high quality point guard.
He played on the same high school team as Jared Sullinger and was overshadowed a bit (his team was one of the top hs teams in the country and was on ESPN a bunch). May I ask where you got this info? None of the sites are reporting it, and the consensus seemed to be that we would finish second to Cinci, who has been recruiting him for a lot longer.
EDIT: Nevermind, just saw this on Rivals. Go Blue!
Many have compared him to Talor Battle, which I will gladly take.
Did he fly to Europe to commit in person?
Obviously great to have a top 150 guy after all of the swings and misses, but it seems strange that they focused on him in the same class as Brundidge. Beilein seems to like tall guards, but this is two on the shorter end in the same class.
That being said, if he's a play maker who can create on his own, sign him up and adjust to his abilities.
for a certain arachnid.
This is really awesome to hear! My brother and sister went to Northland and sadly their football program hasn't been great as of last but some good names are leaving there and going to good schools to play ball and it's awesome to hear UM is getting one of their players! I'm excited to see him in Ann Arbor! Go Vikes!
