2020 Recruiting Class Breakdown: Butler


Phil Wade
Indiana Executive Director

We continue recapping the 2020 high school recruiting classes for each D1 school in Indiana by looking at Butler. 

Total Recruits: 7

In-State Recruits: 3

Top 50 Players (IN): 3

 

Coach Dave Schrage landed three top 50 players from Indiana in his 2020 recruiting class. LHP Cole Graverson (Hamilton Southeastern HS) is a 6-feet, 180 pound southpaw with a mid-80's fastball and feel for his offspeed. Graverson helped lead HSE to the 4A state championship this past season. SS Keenan Taylor (Guerin Catholic HS) is a strong right-handed hitter with bat speed and the ability to drive the gaps. Taylor is an athletic defender with enough speed and arm strength to stay on the left side of the diamond once he lands on campus. Gabe Phipps (Yorktown HS) is a projectable 6-foot-3, 210 pound right-handed pitcher with a fastball into the mid-80's.
