Robert Morris guard Dachon Burke was one of the bigger transfer targets on the market in college basketball. He is now off the board.
Burke has committed to Nebraska this afternoon, according to multiple reports. He will sit out next season and have two years of eligibility remaining.
The Athletic’s Andrew Slater broke the news.

After a solid freshman season in 2016-17 during which he averaged 7.6 points and 3.9 rebounds per game, Burke exploded as a sophomore for RMU.
He was the Colonials’ top player, averaging 17.6 points, 5.8 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game. He also averaged better than two steals per contest.
Where the 6-foot-4 Burke still struggles is with perimeter shooting and at the foul line. He shot only 33.8 percent from three-point range and 62.8 percent on free throws this past year.
Nebraska is coming off a 22-11 season under head coach Tim Miles. The Huskers bowed out of the NIT in the first round.
Despite the disappointing finish, it was Nebraska’s first 20-win season in a decade.
