Butler landed the second member of the 2017 recruiting class on Friday as the aptly named Jerald Butler committed to the Bulldogs.
Butler is Butler’s second commitment in the class, joining Cooper Neese. A 6-foot-5 shooting guard from Florida, Butler is ranked 145th in the class in 247 Sports’ composite ranking.
The Bulldogs hope to use Butler in a role similar to what Roosevelt Jones played from them. From Corey Evans’ scouting report at HoopSeen.com: “The strong and thick bodied forward is more in your play making variety. He is an unbelievable passer of the ball and someone that can be used at various spots on the playing floor. While he does need to shoot it more consistently, he does hit when given the time and spacing where his motor is never in question.”
