Trey Burke (6’1/2011) point guard of Columbus Northland has committed to Penn State. “For one he wanted to play in the Big 10 and the style of play was huge
for him,” said Trey’s father Benji Burke. “They see him coming right in
with Taylor Battle leaving and getting minutes as a freshman.”


Trey Burke (6’1/2011) point guard of Columbus Northland has committed to Penn State.

“For one he wanted to play in the Big 10 and the style of play was huge for him,” said Trey’s father Benji Burke. “They see him coming right in with Taylor Battle leaving and getting minutes as a freshman. Trey and Taylor are very similar both being able to play the one or two. Secondly, they had all three courses of study that interested him. Finally, it is big time basketball and we wanted to pull the trigger to get it over.”

Penn State assistant coach Lewis Preston did most of the recruiting with Burke.

“After the nationals, they had a real good look him seeing his game seven or eight times against the best,” Burke mentioned.

Burke has added a new element to his game and that is size and strength.

“He has been really hitting the weight room hard and seeing results gaining nine pounds of muscle since July,” Burke’s father explained. “He lifts by himself and works out on his own. Trey also has a trainer he works with on his basketball skills.”

Ohio’s 2011s now have to two off the board in Zach Price of Lakewood St.Edward’s (Louisville) and now Burke. Look for more to be coming soon.
