The Butler Bulldogs are looking to add shooting to their roster, and they got off to a quick start with that in the 2017 class. On Tuesday night Chris Holtmann offered Cooper Neese a scholarship and the wing quickly accepted.
At around 6-foot-4, Neese has the size and ability to play multiple spots in the backcourt. He is a decent athlete, and is someone who has some ability to create his own shot. Still what he does best is shoot the basketball from deep.
Over the summer with the Indy Hoosiers, Neese was a key piece on one of the best 16 and under teams in the nation. Neese provided an ability to stretch the defense, and asserted himself as one of the best shooters in the Midwest.
This is the first commitment for Butler in the class. Look for the Bulldogs to continue to try and add wings with the ability to make shots in this class as long as some help on the low block as this is an important class for Holtmann and his staff.
