2018 guard Jared Butler has been one of the biggest surprises during the first two live evaluation periods. The talented 6’3 guard has proven himself as a high-level scorer with great vision.
Butler is turning heads on the EYBL circuit, with great performances against elite competition. Jared’s shotmaking ability was on full display against Southern Stampede, where he showed NBA range and beautiful mechanics off the catch and the dribble. He also demonstrated tremendous vision in the halfcourt, finding teammates for easy buckets off dribble penetration. Butler also flashed good strength and body control when finishing at the rim, where he was able to contort his body for good looks at the rim or convert through contact. For the weekend he averaged 16.8 points, 5.3 assists, 3 rebounds and 2 steals per game while shooting 50% from the field. While Jared may not have been a huge name on the national scene prior to the last 2 weeks, it is near certain that he will be on the radar of college programs across the country moving forward.
