Terrence Butler Jr Is a talented wing who played for Bishop McNamara high school in Forestville, Maryland. Standing a solid 6-7, 210 lbs, he brings an all-round versatile game that will make players around him better. He works hard and plays with a great basketball IQ. He will team with players like last years’ talented freshman TJ Bickerstaff and Senior Coletrane Washington to make a serious run at the CAA conference title. I talked with him about his commitment to the dragons.
LJ: How long was Drexel recruiting you? What coach was recruiting you?
Terrence: Drexel has been recruiting me for over a year. The head coach Zach Spiker recruited me, but the entire staff had seen me play at their camp.
LJ: Why did you choose the dragons? What makes them stand out?
Terrence: I chose the Dragons because it’s close to home and they have a great engineering program. Also, I felt a connection with the entire coaching staff
LJ: What were your averages last season?
Terrence: 17.8 ppg and 7 reb. I was Team captain and awarded MVP
LJ: What does Drexel like about you?
Terrence: Drexel likes how versatile I am. I have length and am a skilled perimeter player. I’m able to make plays, guard multiple positions, and knock down the three. I can handle the ball in transition off the rebound and have enough size to play inside when needed.
LJ: What players have you gotten acquainted with on this team?
Terrence: I’ve been talking with transfer Sam Green who also went to Bishop McNamara. I’m eager to get to know the current players and how we interact together.
LJ: What is the strength of your game on the court? How can you impact this program?
Terrence: The strength of my game is getting to the rim and finishing. I think I can be a leader on and off the court. I can expand the floor and I create mismatches because many players my size are either not quick enough to guard me on the wing or not strong enough to defend me in the paint.
LJ: What other teams were recruiting you hard?
Terrence: Mount St. Mary’s, Brown, Towson, JMU, and Columbia. others were actively calling like Temple, Maryland, George Mason, Princeton, Vermont and a few others
LJ: What does Terrence Butler jr bring to Drexel?
Terrence: A strong work ethic and a person that Coach Spiker can plug in anywhere on the floor in any situation.
