On Thursday November 11, at 7 pm inside of Northland high school in Columbus Ohio point guard Trey Burke will let everyone know that he is a Michigan Wolverine.
"I already have the hat picked out and I am ready to go."
He picked Michigan after really struggling with where to go to college. Cincinnati was second. It came down to where he felt was best for him.
"I chose Michigan because it was the best oppourtunity for me. Three weeks after
my visit it was a hard decision to make, but I felt like at Michigan I could come
and make an immediate impact as a freshmen. It is the Big Ten, close to home,
and it's the college lifestyle.
The decision he made was his own, but his parents helped along the way with the
advice that they gave to him.
"My parents were big on the degree I could leave Michigan with, besides that my
sister is 40 minutes from there -- she is in school at the University of Toledo."
When Trey comes up in the spring of 2011 he expects to hit the ground running.
"I want to be a leader on the team, someone that is going to take control on the
Burke will add skill and swagger to this Michigan squad but it is his skill that the
coaches at Michigan enjoy watching.
"I am a pass-first guard. I can score but I try and get my teammates involved. I
can go to the basket and score as well as create for others."
He clearly likes the direction Michigan is going in and what he and another
classmate will add to the team next year.
"Michigan is going to be okay, and with me and Carlton coming that will help. We
have some players. Jon Horford has a lot of potential as well as Tim Hardaway
Jr. Our goal is to go to the tournament and then the Final Four. We will be
tough to deal with. As far as the coaching staff I am really cool with all of
them -- Coach Beilein, Coach Alexander, Coach Jordan and Coach Meyers. I can't wait
to get there."
Trey had a conversation with Coach Beilein last night.
"Coach Beilien and I talked for a few minutes. He wanted to know how everything
was going with me, and I said just fine. I wanted to know how practice was coming
with the guys and he said that was going good."
As far as his high school season is concerned he said, "We have a real good chance to win it all this year."
