South Bend, IN – IU South Bend Head Men's Basketball Coach Scott Cooper announced the addition of prep standout Danté Butler on Sunday evening. Butler is the third commit for Cooper, who is in his first season with the Titans.
Butler is finishing up his high school career at Indianapolis Horizon Christian School in Indianapolis, Indiana. This year under Head Coach Trey Oetjen, Danté has helped lead the Lions to an 18-8 record in the regular season, and led the team to a 2013 Indiana Christian School State Championship.
In his senior season, Butler is currently averaging 17.9 points, 9.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists, and 2.0 steals per game while shooting 57% from the field, and 44% from three point range.
"Danté is a good get for our program. He has good size for a combo guard, and has an outstanding feel for the game," said IU South Bend Head Coach Scott Cooper. "He has a very high motor, is a great rebounder for a guard, and can score in a lot of different ways. He comes from an outstanding program at HCS where he has been coached very well. He was a late bloomer in high school, and we think his best days are ahead of him. Danté is also a great kid off the court, and a solid student in the classroom. We are expecting him to be a very good player for us in the future."
