Butler Has Two Favorites

The incredibly athletic wing from Long Beach Poly, Reggie Butler, favors an east coast school and one local school...

Reggie Butler, 6-5 SF Long Beach (Calif.) Poly, told us over the weekend that two schools have emerged from the pack in his recruitment.

"Right now, I'm leaning to Maryland -- they're showing a lot of interest," said Butler. "But Marcedes (Poly teammate and UCLA football commit Marcedes Lewis) is pushing me to UCLA and they're my number two choice right now."

Butler also mentioned UMass, New Mexico, Oregon, USC and Washington St. as schools that are showing him a lot of interest.

An outstanding athlete and good spot-up shooter with three-point range, Butler needs to work on his ball-handling skills and defense. With improvement in those areas, he has a chance to play at the high major level.
