TE Burke heading to the Big Ten

By Corey Dowlar

It didn't take long for 6-foot-6, 210-pound tight end Matt Burke (West Palm Beach, Fla./Cardinal Newman) to make a decision on the heels of his official visit to Purdue over the weekend.

Burke will be a Boilermaker.

"Purdue was the right fit for my family and I," he said. "We loved the visit and were blown away by everything there."

Burke also took official visits to Boise State, Harvard and San Diego State. His other offers included Dartmouth, FIU, Georgia State, Marshall, Massachusetts, Middle Tennessee, Princeton, Western Michigan and Yale.

Burke is Purdue's first commitment from a tight end for the Class of 2013 but the third verbal from the state of Florida.
