With Butler connecting with Kennard, the Bulldogs have positioned themselves well for the 6-foot 4 native of Ohio.
"Butler is definitely in the top 10 on my list," Kennard said. "I talk to Coach Johnson and Stevens. Butler has a tremendous coaching staff and a great academic opportunity."
Butler is moving to the Big East next season, and that only helps with Kennard's interest.
"The move is a big move for them," Kennard said. "It provides some more competition for their program, which I like."
InsideTheDawgPound will follow up with Kennard after his visit with Butler.
