Butler lands power forward

Brad Stevens and his coaching staff landing a very solid frontcourt commitment on Saturday.

The Butler Bulldogs are looking to re-stock their frontcourt in the 2013 class, and right now they are off to a good start. Butler got Nolan Berry to commit early, and now they have added a second pledge in Andrew Chrabascz.

Playing over the summer for the high powered BABC program, Chrabascz was excellent. During the month of July he was forced to carry the team, and he did just that. At 6-foot-7 and 235 pounds, Chrabascz can play facing the rim or down low.

On Saturday the power forward decided to end his recruitment and pick Butler.

"I am committed to Butler," said Chrabascz via text message.

Chrabascz made his decision while visiting the school, and that sealed the deal.

"I fell in love with the place," said Chrabascz. "It's strong both academically and athletically. I love the players and the staff. Walking into Hinkle gave me goosebumps."

He continued, "I definitely couldn't be happier."

Chrabascz will now pair with Berry to give the Bulldogs a very impressive frontcourt in their move to the Atlantic 10. Berry is more of a finesse player who has a lot of skill. Chrabascz is the high motor and high energy butt kicker who will pair well alongside him.

Now Butler will look to add another player to the class, this time one who can play in the backcourt.
