Butler lands third commitment in Class of 2016


It didn’t take long for Henry Baddley to bite on his offer from Butler, as the 6-foot-6 wing announced on Thursday that he has committed to play for the Bulldogs.

“I am very blessed and excited to announce that I have just officially committed to Butler University,” Baddley tweeted.

Baddley plays for St. Vincent’s-St. Mary’s in Ohio — the same high school that LeBron James attended — and that’s not where his connection to the Cavaliers’ superstar ends, as Baddley is a member of King James Elite on the Nike EYBL circuit.

Baddley is not ranked by Rivals, but he is recognized for his athleticism. He’s now the third commitment that Chris Holtmann has landed in the Class of 2016, joining four-star big man Joey Brunk and three-star point guard Howard Washington.
