Recruiting Buzz: July Evaluation Update

The final July evaluation period is upon us and teams are out on the road evaluation and making their presence known for the final time before summer camp starts for most teams. Butler is no exception as they prepare to head to Australia.

Fleming Hearing from Two in the SEC the Hardest

Playing for the St. Louis Eagles in the Peach Jam and then heading to Orlando for the AAU Super Showcase, Andrew Fleming has gotten his name and game in coaches' minds.

Butler had been recruiting Fleming fairly hard under the watch of Brad Stevens, now the Bulldogs seem to be slowing it down with the 2015 rising guard. Coach Johnson has been handing his recruitment for some time.

"Butler hasn't hit me up in two weeks. I think they are playing hard to get for some reason," Fleming said.

While Butler hasn't been picking up the contact with Fleming, he still holds offers from the likes of Memphis, Auburn, Florida, Vanderbilt, and Nebraska. The 6-foot 5 shooting guard from Nashville (TN) Ensworth High School says there are a couple schools coming at him the hardest.

"Vanderbilt has really picked up their recruiting," Fleming explained. "They would die for me to stay home and play for them and be the show. Florida is also bringing the heat too. They are recruiting me the hardest."

While the Nashville native says those two are recruiting him the hardest, he doesn't name any favorites yet.

Martin and Bluiett Impress in Vegas

It's a big weekend out in Las Vegas with three or four AAU tournaments going on including the Super64 and Fab48.

Trevon Bluiett and Kelan Martin have teamed up on the Indiana Elite squad and put on quite the performance. Martin's recruitment has taken off since playing well in Indianapolis a few weeks ago and the Kentucky forward could be picking up a few more offers in the coming weeks.

Martin told our Evan Daniels that Texas Tech, Butler, St. Louis, Providence and Xavier are recruiting him the hardest.

Bluiett has been quite impressive as well. The 2014 wing has dominated a couple games thus far with his jumper and ability to get to the rim.

Butler continues to track these two 2014 forwards as the fall approaches. Despite the coaching change, Butler continues to be in fairly good position with each.
