Lehigh lands Cardinal Newman WR/DB Ryan Burke 

By Jason Lieser

Cardinal Newman senior Ryan Burke, a wide receiver and defensive back, has committed to play for Lehigh.

Burke (6-2, 187) considered several other schools, including Princeton, but decided on Lehigh after his official visit earlier this month.

Lehigh does not offer athletic scholarships, but Burke will be admitted as a qualifying football prospect, his father, David Burke, said.

Burke caught 18 passes for 263 yards and two touchdowns this season.
