Although Mishawaka, Indiana point guard Markus Burton signed with Notre Dame long before Micah Shrewsberry was named the new coach, there wasn’t any wavering in his commitment.
Burton had a huge senior season for Penn High School averaging 30.2 points, 4.6 assists, 5.5 rebounds, and 3.3 steals per game. He led PHS to a 28-2 overall record, 11-0 in conference.
That effort was enough for Burton to be recognized as the states best basketball player, today being named Indiana’s Mr. Basketball.
The 5-foot, 10-inch and 170 pound floor general is rated as the 18th best point guard and 147th overall player in the country according to the 247Sports composite. Burton was the only signee for the Irish in the 2023 recruiting cycle.
