In his third year as a full-time starter, he is the Gators' active leader in career tackles with 134. He has also 19 12 tackles for loss and 6 12 sacks in 35 career games.

A mathematics major and economics minor, Burkley is a three-time Doane and Alden Scholar, carrying a grade-point average of 3.94.
