Basketball writer Jeff Goodman shared the following review of Butler's play:
"He does a little bit of everything for the Mountaineers and has a terrific basketball IQ. He can score inside and out, handles the ball well and has been the main reason why the Mountaineers have been so successful this season."
Butler also earned a spot on the 10-player United States Basketball Writers Association (USBWA) all-District II team. District II includes New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Washington, D.C.
