    Missed last season with a dislocated shoulder but he would help to fill a massive hole on this Butler roster.

    "A 6-foot-11 redshirt junior from Fayetteville, North Carolina, Bates is one of the best defensive players in the country. He's led the ACC in blocked shots each of the past two seasons, blocking 2.9 per game in just 18.4 minutes in 2019-20 and then blocking 2.7 per game last season. Bates also set NC State's single-season record for field goal percentage last season, making 64.1% of his shots." - ESPN.

    This would be a big get...pun intended.

    Manny Bates was number one in block percentage *in all of college basketball* as a as a freshman. He led the ACC in block % as a sophomore. He’s a great rebounder and extremely efficient offensively.

    He’d be the most impactful transfer since Rotnei. By a lot.

    IL, OSU, gtown, auburn, Houston, Iowa state all allegedly have mutual interest too. This is huge getting him onto campus.

    100% agree. 6-11 rim protector would be a game changer. Never has butler had that. And he would have 3 years of eligibility including the COVID year and I’m assuming a medical redshirt for last year, if I’m not mistaken. LFG!

    This would make us an NCAA tournament roster immediately.

    If they close on Bates this weekend, I think it should completely change hopes/expectations for next season.

    Would Bates be the third true BE quality big we have had since joining the conference (joining Chrabascz and Wideman)? Would be monumental.

    If Butler were to land Ali, Phinisee, Bates + something else - wouldn't Matta be close to winning the portal this year (non-blue blood category)?

    Immediately eligible regardless of whether he graduates. And yeah he should have at least 2 years remaining. Maybe 3? He’s played 2 seasons and then one minute this year. With Covid year not counting, and then if this year was a redshirt year, I think he may be eligible for 3. But it’s at least two for sure.

    Recent interest by OSU but Thad got him to BU first! Hopefully hits it off with they guys as well as Connor and Phinisee. This could be the most important couple of recruiting days in program history.

    Wow...Yes please indeed. Mike Pegues will definitely know what to do with that. Imagine him and Wilmoth, two mobile bigs playing side by side in stretches - That's some nice rim protection and rebounding right there.
