Robert Morris G Dachon Burke to join Cornhuskers as transfer
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Robert Morris guard Dachon Burke is transferring to Nebraska, where he’ll have two seasons of eligibility after sitting out 2018-19.
Nebraska coach Tim Miles on Monday announced the addition of Burke, who picked the Cornhuskers over St. John’s, Pittsburgh and Marquette.
Burke was a second-team All-Northeast Conference pick as a sophomore last season. He averaged a team-best 17.6 points and an NEC-leading 2.1 steals. Burke had a pair of double-doubles and 11 20-point efforts, including a career-high 29 points against LIU Brooklyn.
Burke grew up and played in New Jersey, first for Orange High and then Coastal Academy prep school.
