Burge, a junior from Bloomington, Ill., chose the Illini after meeting with coach Mike Small recently.

Other schools showing interest were: Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan, Auburn and Vanderbilt, among others.

“Coach Small is a great coach, and they have a lot of resources over there, and I just feel really comfortable with the whole situation,” Burge said in an e-mail to Golfweek.

Burge placed third in the Illinois Class 2A State Tournament this past fall, finishing two strokes back. He also finished second in 2008.
