Butler lands second Class of 2016 commitment of the day with shooting guard


Butler added its second commitment of the day and fourth overall to the Class of 2016 on Thursday with a commitment from Georgia native and guard Kamar Baldwin, sources confirmed to NBCSports.com. The 6-foot-1 Baldwin had some strong games during the month of July with the Atlanta Celtics and is regarded as the No. 133 overall prospect, according to Rivals.

A talented lefty shooting guard, Baldwin averaged 11 points, 3.9 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game during the last week of July out in Las Vegas. He also shot 47 percent from the field and 44 percent from 3-point range. Earlier in the day, Butler received a commitment from 2016 small forward Henry Baddley.

Four-star center and Indiana native Joey Brunk and three-star point guard Howard Washington round out Butler’s current four-man class and it’s a solid group that should play well together after some seasoning.
