On Thursday, the Nebraska Cornhuskers got some exciting news as they learned that Robert Morris transfer guard Dachon Burke had committed to the program. He moves to Lincoln after spending two seasons with the Colonials.

During his time at Robert Morris, Burke put up some quality numbers. He played in a total of 65 games and started 30 of them as a sophomore. Burke averaged an impressive 17.6 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 2.5 assists as a sophomore and scored double-digits in each of the team’s final 10 games of the season.
Burke is listed as 6-foot-4 and 180 pounds and is expected to add depth in the backcourt. However, he does have the capability of playing on the wing as well, though fans will likely expect to see him at the two spot in Nebraska’s lineup.
There’s little debating that this is a significant pickup for the Huskers. Not only because Burke was a quality player for the Colonials, but he should be able to step right in when players like James Palmer and Glynn Watson depart from the program. This is also another quality transfer addition for Tim Miles and his staff.
Unfortunately, due to NCAA transfer rules, Burke will miss next season. Nonetheless, he could be a player to watch heading into the 2019-’20 season for the Huskers.
