Butler Recruiting: Class of 2015 Guard Sean McDermott commits to Bulldogs

Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

Butler adds another to their 2015 class, with the commitment of guard Sean McDermott.

Sean McDermott, a junior guard who plays for Pendleton Heights High School in Indiana, has verbally committed to Butler. Butler offered McDermott a scholarship while he was on an unofficial at the school on May 13th, and 247Sports reported that his interest in the university was "warm" compared to his other offers from Illinois State, Indiana State, New Orleans and UNC Greensboro.

Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star had the news first on Friday evening.

"Obviously it's an honor," McDermott told the IndyStar about the offer from Butler. "Growing up in Indiana it's a big deal because Butler has been such a good basketball team..."

He is not ranked in the nation by 247Sports or other major recruiting sites, but he put up some impressive stats in his junior season, averaging 14.6 points, 3.6 rebounds and a shooting percent above 30 from the three-point line. These numbers are not even his best possible as reportedly the commit was hospitalized for several days during the season. Which most likely affected his play.

Sean McDermott said on Twitter, "Happy to say I'm committing to Butler University to play basketball."

McDermott is the second commit in the 2015 class for the Butler Bulldogs, as the school welcomed Nate Fowler earlier this week.
