It wasn't an easy decision, but three-star point guard Trey Burke has been able to come up with his college decision. The Columbus (OH) Northland star took some recent unofficial visits, and after returning home and thinking things over with his family he decided his future was best served in the Big Ten.
After a very strong showing during the month of July, Burke saw his stock soar in the eyes of college coaches. With that more and more schools started showing up at his games, and for Burke it was a school that tracked him closely in July that ended up being his choice.
"Trey Burke committed to Michigan today," said Burke's father Benji Burke.
Ultimately the decision came down to Cincinnati and Michigan. The Bearcats did a good job of selling the program to Burke, but in the end he decided he wanted to be a Wolverine.
"For Trey, he just grew up a Big Ten kid, and he just felt it was a better fit at the end of the day," said the elder Burke. "It was tough. We developed a real tight relationship with Mick Cronin and George Jackson at Cincinnati, so it was real tough decision, but he just thought it was a better fit."
With the commitment to the Wolverines, Burke becomes the second commitment for them. He joins fellow guard Carlton Brundidge as a commitment.
Burke is currently rated as the No. 136 player in the nation overall and the No. 27 point guard.
