Recruiting Buzz: Quick Smits Update

Butler offered Zionsville (IN) High School Derrik Smits earlier this month and became his first offer. Now Smits is gathering more information about other schools by taking unofficial visits.

Class of 2015 center Derrik Smits has been busy for the past few weeks.

Once the June 15th deadline hit, Smits has been actively receiving interest from a number schools across the country.

The 6-foot 10 center has been receiving interest lately from "Indiana, Loyola (IL), Tennessee, Boston College, IUPUI, Ball State, and a few others," Smits said.

Smits has started to play extremely well on the AAU circuit, which has resulted in the increased interest and his first offer from Butler earlier this month.

The Zionsville team recently visited Purdue for their team camp last week.

Now Smits is hitting the road for a few more unofficial visits this summer including Xavier tomorrow.

"I'm visiting Tennessee this week," Smits said. "(I'm) planning visits to IU and Ball State soon."
