He prefers to get downhill and attack the basket, but showed a formidable jumper along the perimeter. Butler has an advanced physical frame and should emerge as one of the top players in his South Carolina class sooner than later.
#30- 5’10 ’21 Charlie Miller- The all-purpose guard was very effective at getting to his spots and making intelligent plays on both ends of the floor.

#71- 6’2 ’20 Darius Hough- The strong-bodied wing prospect showed the ability to effortlessly get downhill and attack the basket, where he’s able to finish above the rim and through any amount of contact.
