Fowler, from Cincinnati's Moeller high school is a three-star center, the eighth best player out of the state of Ohio, and the 236th player on 247Sports' Top247 for 2015. He also had offers from Dayton and West Virginia. Chris Holtmann said the following about Fowler, "Nate has tremendous size at all of 6'10 and 250 pounds, a terrific skill level, and he is a very cerebral player. He will have an impact for us from Day One".
McDermott comes to the Bulldogs as a three-star shooting guard from Pendleton Heights High School in Pendleton Heights, Ind. a school Butler has recruited incredibly well over the past few years. Pendleton Heights' all time leading scorer is current Bulldog Kellen Dunham. Holtmann offered this up in regards to McDermott, "Sean is an outstanding shooter with great size and sneaky athleticism, we think his best days are ahead of him as he continues to improve his strength and grow into his frame."
