Everybody knows, or at least they should at this point, that Butler has been a haven for shooters. What they might not realize is that Brad Stevens on occasion has dipped into Florida for recruits. This year will be no different.
Khyle Marshall, a 6-foot-7 forward out of Pembroke Pines (Fla.) Flanagan, is a done deal for Butler after visiting Old Dominion and UAB.
“Once we really evaluated everything, that was the best move for him,” Flanagan coach Jeam Perriee told Scout.com. “From a playing standpoint and from a perennial power, that was the best move for him.”
Marshall averaged a robust 26 points and 12.5 rebounds as a junior.
“Khyle is multi-dimensional. At that level he’ll play 2, 3 four positions. He’s a multi-dimensional forward that will be able to play everywhere.
“I don’t want to take too much credit, but I taught him to be a basketball player and not just trying to learn to play one position. Real basketball players get the job done from whatever position they play from. It was hard to get him to understand it at first, but the more positions you play the more valuable you are.”
