Keyshawn Embery (Oklahoma City/Oklahoma Run PWP) was offered by Butler on Sunday. Embery, a 6-foot-3, 175-pound point guard in the class of 2018, announced the offer on his Twitter account.

The Bulldogs were one of three teams who offered the three-star point guard on Sunday, joining Arizona State of the Pac-12 and Texas A&M of the SEC in that regard.

Embery ranks as the second-best player in the state of Oklahoma in the class of 2018. Only Boise State commit and combo guard Trey’von Hopkins of nearby Carl Albert High School ranks higher than the Midwest City point guard in the Sooner State. Embery is listed as the No. 43 point guard in the country in 2018 and ranks 248th overall among all recruits.

To this point in time, Keyshawn has racked up offers from 10 schools in total. The Cincinnati Bearcats got in on the OKC point guard on Monday to make it an even 10, as Butler finds themselves in the pack along with Purdue, Houston, Nebraska, Tulsa, Fordham and fellow Big East rep Creighton.

Butler now finds themselves pursuing a litany of guards in 2018 with zero commits to this point. Embery is among a field consisting of Miller Kopp, Will Richardson, Eric Hunter Jr., Tim Finke, Robert Phinisee, Ayo Dosunmu, Elijah Weaver and Duane Washington Jr. to this point in time.
