Andrew Smith, a 6-foot-9 center out of Indianapolis (Ind.) Covenant Christian, committed to Butler. "This is the place where Andrew feels like is best for him," Curt Smith, Andrew's father said. "They see winning in life as the goal, not just winning on the wood."
This May, Smith dotted the radar while playing with Indiana Premier.
"They got serious about recruiting Andrew after they met with them in May," Smith said. "Brad Stevens told him he was their kind of player but needed to see him play live. Butler invited Andrew's high school team in May, they watched him at camp and he played great basketball. I think Matthew Graves or Brad was at every one of Andrew's games in July."
