Butler adds another in 2012

The Butler Bulldogs pulled in their third commitment in the 2012 class with Chris Harrison-Docks.

The Butler Bulldogs have made it to back-to-back final fours, and they are beginning to see the benefits on the recruiting trail. Butler picked up their third commitment of the 2012 class on Wednesday when Chris Harrison-Docks pulled the trigger and issued his verbal commitment.

"We talked about it last night and he gave me a call and said he did it," said Ted Docks, Harrison-Docks father.

Docks continued, "I think Butler just epitomizes Chris and what we have instilled in him. They get it done. You don't have to have glitz and glamour, you just have to win games and do it the right way."

Harrison-Docks chose Butler over offers from San Diego State, Utah, New Mexico, Western Michigan, and Duquesne. Also he had interest from Stanford, Virginia, and Boston College.

In the end it was the way Butler does things that stuck out to Harrison-Docks and his family.

"I think they really believe in the student athlete, and that is very important to us," said Docks. "Butler plays in Hinkle Fieldhouse which is historic, and they get great athletes and great students, and they win. That epitomizes NCAA basketball and what the college experience should be about."

In the end, Harrison-Docks just felt that Butler was the perfect place for him to continue to develop as a player and as a person.

"Chris just said Butler is him," said Docks. "As a kid he is just a winner and he competes at the highest level, so I think that epitomizes him and Butler."

Harrison-Docks now joins Kellen Dunham and Devontae Morgan in the Bulldogs 2012 class.
