One of the better point guards in the Midwest is now back on the market. Columbus (Ohio) point guard Trey Burke made an early commitment to the Penn State Nittany Lions, but now he is back open to suitors.
It has been a big spring so far for Burke. The now 6-foot-1 and 170-pound point guard has led his All-Ohio Red team to a big spring. He has been impressive all spring long on the Nike EYBL circuit.
Now Burke has decided to re-open his recruitment according to his father Benji. "Trey opened up his recruitment."
The No 117 ranked player in the Rivals150 and number 26 point guard is open to new suitors, but at the same time will give Penn State a great shot to land him.
"Trey wanted to go through the process during his last summer of playing on the circuit," said Burke. "He really likes Penn State and Coach (Ed) DeChellis and Coach Lewis (Preston)."
Burke continued, "Penn State is still high on his list. He wanted to experience the recruiting process fully and then make a final decision."
Before making his commitment to Penn State, Burke was being heavily recruited by Butler, Dayton, Cincinnati, Akron, James Madison, and Ohio University. Also schools such as Purdue, Baylor, Notre Dame, and West Virginia were also involved.
Burke maintains that his son is open to all suitors, and that the family is looking for the best situation before making a final decision.
