DePaul was given some good news Thursday afternoon, as 2017 forward Jaylen Butz tweeted he was committing to the school.

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.
