INDIANAPOLIS – College basketball recruiters covet size and shooting. Butler is going after both in an unlikely location: Amarillo, Texas.
After a weekend camp for college prospects at Hinkle Fieldhouse, Butler made scholarship offers to two Amarillo players in the 2022 class: 6-11 Cade Hornecker and 6-4 Brendan Hausen. Both players announced the offers on Twitter.
Hornecker is ranked 180th nationally and Hausen 191st by 247sports. They helped the Sandies (24-4) reach the Class 5A state semifinals in Texas.
Hausen averaged 17.6 points and 3.4 assists per game, made 90 3-pointers and shot 91% on three throws.
