Burke averaged team highs in points (17.6 per game) and steals (2.1 per game) for the Colonials last season. He also averaged 5.8 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game for Robert Morris, which went 16-17 and finished in sixth in the Northeastern conference.
Nebraska could certainly use Burke, as the program aims to build on a 22-11 season. The Huskers will look different next year, though, with James Palmer, Isaac Copeland and Isaiah Roby all having declared for the 2018 NBA Draft. No member of the trio has hired an agent, meaning Palmer, Copeland and Roby can return to school after going through the combine, but the possibility for turnover at Nebraska is high.
Nebraska’s incoming recruiting class is thin, with just two incoming players in 3-star small forward Karrington Davis and 3-star center Brady Heiman. It is currently ranked No. 14 in the Big Ten, according to 247Sports.
Burke’s addition would be a big get for Nebraska, as he’d provide another weapon in an offense that might very likely be adjusting to a new identity.
