    Never seen that name either, but a google search shows that we are apparently in his top 3. LOL. Also Clemson and Ole Miss. 6'2 PG from Georgia. Here's a Rivals article where he discusses his top 3, but I'm not a subscriber. https://usf.rivals.com/barrier_noentry.asp?sid=1074&script=/content.asp&cid=1768575

    Anyone got anything on this??

    Baldwin is a Rivals 150 (124th overall) and has offers from both Clemson and Ole Miss. We haven't offered him (supposedly), but we are in his top three.

    Interesting...very interesting...I'm not saying he's going to be our 2016 PG, but there's a lot going on here. It might mean a lot that we (ButlerHoops) know nothing about his recruitment.

    To me he's more of a 2 guard than a 1, but he's definitely a guy that can create on his own, which is needed in the Big East. He is listed on the list of targets on ESPN's recruiting bible that came out today, so it is possible that Butler is waiting to see where things might go with Walker or Goodin possibly before extending him a formal offer.

    Baldwin's a lefty according to Twitter. I want to learn more about this kid.

    How big of a deal is it that we're in his top three without having offered him?

    247 sports reflects no offers for Baldwin and Verbal Com shows only Clemson. Ranked at 102 by 247. Doesn't make sense that he only has offers from Clemson and maybe Ole Miss.

    Is it possible that he has an offer from Butler but it hasn't been publicized? Would definitely be atypical, I admit.

    Ditto for Howard Washington. 247 shows we made an offer to Washington. Both Washington and Baldwin may not be into publicizing their offers and how many like others do.

    I hope that's the case. I think it shows humility. Definitely a positive in my mind.

    Woods' newest article says Butler has offered Baldwin.

    Is this one of the three offers you referred to the other day or the fourth?

    This kid is definitely a breath of fresh air and absolutely fits the personality of a Butler kid. This article from last December mentioned six schools he had offers from none of which are listed by VC or 247 who reflect zero to three offers. I would not be surprised that he has a Butler offer.

    Quick release and good elevation on his jump shot and can finish with either hand. Wish we were in the driver's seat.

    Dude... Yes please. Size. Quickness. Outside shot. Can drive. Mid-range game/pull-up.

    Please get this kid.

    Very difficult to assess someone from "their" highlight videos, but this kid looks pretty damn good. Can score (even creating his own shot) and pass and penetrate. Not sure of his D, but he sure has size. And best of all, he doesn't have a whole lot of unbeatable offers. Like I said, hard to tell from highlight videos, but this may be someone we should go after a little harder. We really need a 1 in this class, and there are several out there. Some of the more often mentioned 1's may be a little of a stretch.
