Recruiting Roundup: Butler, Monmouth, USC, Harvard, Auburn, SMU Land Pledges; Justin Smith Down to 2
By JACOB POLACHECK & ADAM ZAGORIA
Christian David, the 6-foot-5 shooting guard from Vermont Academy, committed to Butler on Saturday night, giving coach Chris Holtmann a huge building block heading forward.
Ranked the No. 23 shooting guard in the Class of 2017 by 247Sports.com, he also considered Pitt and Creighton.
“Christian has a high upside because of his versatility on both ends of the floor,” Vermont Academy coach Alex Popp said. “He is an athletic guard who is very skilled. He has great basketball IQ. Above all, he is a winner. He played on the Vermont Academy team that won NEPSAC AA last year.”
David announced his pick on Twitter. He becomes the second Vermont Academy senior this week to pick a school, after 6-7 power forward Marcus Santos-Silva committed to VCU on Wednesday.
He is Butler’s fourth commit, following point guard Jerald Butler, shooting guard Cooper Neese and power forward Kyle Young.
