Jared Butler, a four-star prospect out of the 2018 recruiting class, has committed to the Baylor Bears. If the timing of a 2018 prospect committing to the school seems off, it is because Butler was originally committed to the Alabama Crimson Tide before changing his mind.
Butler, a 6-foot-2 point guard, is not only pegged as a four-star recruit, according to most reputable recruiting service websites, but is widely considered one of the 100 best players in the entire class.
The Baylor Bears released a statement announcing Jared Butler to the program.
On the EBYL circuit, Butler averaged around 14 points and four assists per contest. He’s considered a slightly raw prospect, but to be completely fair to him, rare is the high school player heading to the college level without some room for improvement.
Given Baylor’s point guard situation, Butler is unlikely to start, but should add much needed depth to the position for the upcoming season.
