Graduate transfer Dachon Burke won’t be playing for Fred Hoiberg and the Huskers next season. The 6-foot-4 guard has reportedly found a new home.
Burke came to Nebraska in 2018 after spending two years at Robert Morris University where he averaged 17.6 points per game his sophomore campaign. The talented guard sat out the 2018-19 season with the Huskers, per NCAA rules.
Burke was a productive scorer for Nebraska this last season, averaging 12.2 points per game to go along with 3.4 rebounds and 1.4 steals per contest. But things didn’t end well for the 6-foot-4 guard near the end of last season as he was suspended indefinitely for breaking curfew rules.
Looking for another opportunity, Burke has decided to leave Nebraska. The graduate transfer will spend his final year of collegiate eligibility at South Alabama, per college basketball insider Jeff Goodman:

This will be Dachon Burke’s third school he will have played for throughout his collegiate career.
As for the Huskers, Hoiberg is bringing in a couple transfer players of his own this off-season. After finishing dead last in the Big Ten this past season, Nebraska is hoping the transfer strategy pays off.
With Hoiberg at the helm, fans like the trajectory of where Nebraska’s hoops program is heading.
