The Tabor Academy (Mass.) 6-7, 215-pound senior forward, who had signed with St. Bonaventure and was released from his letter-of-intent, committed to Providence late Wednesday night.
``I wennt there this past weekend on a visit and liked what they had to offer," Burch said. "In terms of playing time and everything else. I felt comfortable with the situation."
Burch was also considering Villanova, but did not end up taking a visit to Philadelphia.
``This gives me a chance to come right in and play," Burch added. "If Ryan Gomes stays, I can learn from one of the best players and go up against him every day and if he leaves, I'll get an even better chance to play."
