DePaul was given some good news Thursday afternoon, as 2017 forward Jaylen Butz tweeted he was committing to the school.
I would like to thank all the coaches that took the time out to recruit me but I will be committing to DePaul University. ⚪️ pic.twitter.com/sRup8UCvOD— Jaylen Butz (@Jraww_11) October 6, 2016
Butz, from Fort Wayne, Indiana, had offers from UIC, Toledo, and Ball State, among others.
In a way, it’s interesting that Butz used a photo of DePaul’s new arena in his tweet. We’ve wondered about the new arena’s impact on recruiting. Is this the first tangible sign of it making a difference?
Butz doesn’t have a ton of highlight videos, but below is a video of him dunking.
DePaul still has two scholarships left for next year, so they aren’t done yet.
