Butler Visits Fleming

As Andrew Fleming starts his Junior season he is looking to add his first Big East offer

After Brad Stevens departed Butler, there was a time when Andrew Fleming wasn't sure where his relationship with the Bulldogs was going to go. Stevens had personally shown interest in Fleming, but there were gaps in communication with the coaching staff.

However, over the past month all of that has changed as Butler increased communication with Fleming and has begun to pursue Fleming hard once again.

Fleming has offers from Florida, Vanderbilt, Memphis, Auburn, Nebraska, and Morehead State. He also has received interest from Butler, UCLA, Texas, Notre Dame, and a few others.

This week Fleming received a visit from Coach Terry Johnson, who has become the main recruiter of Fleming for the Bulldogs.

"We got to sit down and talk a little bit", Fleming said. "He just watched me individually work out. He likes my game and will let me know what's going on (with an offer) after he talks to his head coach (Brandon Miller). He's great. Awesome guy!"

Fleming has a lot of interest in Butler, but there are other schools fighting for his attention.

"Obviously Butler, then Rick Byrd (Belmont) visited last Thursday," Fleming said. "Vanderbilt, Texas, Clemson, Notre Dame, and Memphis, Josh Pastner, will probably come this month."

It will be a busy month of coaching visits as he gets set to resume his high school career.

The 6-foot 4, 165 pound guard from Ensworth (TN) High School helped lead his team to a record of 23-8 during his sophomore season and a Division II-AA State Championship. Now Fleming looks to continue that success this year during his high school season after a successful AAU season with the St. Louis Eagles.

Butler currently has has offers out to two Class of 2015 shooting guards in Aaron Jordan (IL), Malcolm Evans (NJ).
