ProspectsNation.com Grade: 4 star plus
Committed College: UCLA
5/17/14 – West Coast Inv. (Rancho Cucamonga, Calif.) – Brandon Clay
Burke was playing the point guard here today out of necessity. That’s not the position that we project her playing longterm though she did a solid there. Though she is a left-hand essay on my life so far dominant ball handler, Burke shoots her jump shots with her right hand.
7/25/13 – Ballin in the Ballroom (Las Vegas, Nev.) – Chris Hansen
When Burke is on, she is really freaking good. She blocked a would be driver’s shot hard, almost punched it. She’s starting to get her lefty runner dialed in and with her length and athleticism it’s hard to keep her from getting that shot off any time she wants it because it’s before the help steps up.
5/19/13 – West Coast Premier Inv. (Rancho Cucamonga, Calif.) – Brandon Clay
Burke came back from the USA Trials to play here. The left-handed wing is a top level athlete at the small forward position. Her ability to off side rebound is impressive from the wing. She runs the floor consistently.
5/18/13 essay writing on teacher my role model – U16 National Team Trials (Colorado Springs, Colo.) – Keil Moore
Burke is an intriguing prospect for schools to start taking a strong look at. She shows flashes of a potential cornerstone type recruit and her athletic ability and size isn’t something you can find in every gym you walk in to. She has a bunch of things she will have to keep improving and polishing but she is certainly a name to watch moving forward.
12/20/12 – Nike TOC (Phoenix, Ariz.) – Brandon Clay
She has filled out some since July came to a close. Made a 15 foot pull-up jumper off of the left handed dribble. Rebounded it well on both ends. She has a good athlete and smooth.
7-31-12 @ Nike Nationals (North Augusta, SC) – Keil Moore
essay cheap labor Burke has a wiry build. We can see her playing some three and some four in college. Handles the ball well enough to occasionally take over playmaking responsibilities for a team. She’s the best when she has the ball 16′ and in and a tough cover for most players.
7/7/12 – End of Trail (Portland, Ore.) – Chris Hansen
Think Jonquel Jones (2012-Clemson) in build and possibly potential game if she continues to gain confidence and develop her perimeter jumper. She uses to length to rebound and score on put backs but has legit wing skills. She has good footwork around the basket. Even though she shoots a set shot she has a nice, high release point and she converted several three-point shots.
5/19/12 – West Coast Inv. (Los Angeles, Calif.) – Brandon Clay free chemistry homework help
Burke has the size and perimeter skills to emerge as one of the Golden State’s top prospects in the class of 2015. The versatile forward showed off her ball handling as she played the point guard spot for a stretch. Burke also showed that she can score the basketball from the wing by creating lanes off the dribble drive. Her length and activity make her a threat at the defensive end of the floor as well.
