Anyone here know if Butler has been in contact with Pierce Thomas of Brownsburg ‘21?
Not sure but I hope so. Purdue has already.
As has IU. C’mon B-burg peeps—what’s the dope?
Butler is the first to offer a local kid from Brownsburg. His film is really intriguing. He’s pretty quick, shoots well, and can finish at the rack well for his size. He’s a tremendous Track & Field athlete as well. In the eighth grade, he went undefeated in the long jump, 200, 400, and 1600 relay.
I love this offer. Thomas is going to be a gamer, and he comes from a basketball family. Both of his parents played at Illinois State.
Check out his film:
I absolutely LOVE that the staff has a full roster and went from being behind the curve to way ahead in recruiting all within one year. Let’s go DAWGS!

Holy crap this dude is some kind of athlete!!! IU is all over him already as well. Good to see LJ get in there first. Also buddies with Caleb Furst. He would be the most electrifying athlete ever to come to Butler, 6'3 and probably still growing. He broke 30+ year record for high jump as a freshman this year at over 21'
Wow. At 15... kid is a great athlete and seems to have a good feel for the game. Hope he continues to develop.
Certainly no issues targeting a select few, especially this one.
That is an AMAZING high jump!!! 21 feet... far better than Dwight Stones.
Maybe long jump?
yes long jump...wrong event
He's jumped 24' 11 1/2" which is damn impressive at the HS level! (That wins a lot of college meets also.)
In regards to Thomas I can only hope we have not tainted the process already. He should be made a a recruiting priority.
*****I'm going to preface this with normal disclaimer that it is still extremely early in recruiting process class of 2021 and recruiting is constantly fluid*****
I just noticed Brian Snow made a crystal ball pick to Butler for Thomas last week
Don't some people think Snow doesn't like Butler? Ha, any chance he's just ****ing with us here? He's got an over 90% success rate on CB's, he can probably afford to miss this one without affecting his credibility.
But if it's legit... Let's go.
Some green shoots of optimism seem to be sprouting within the program these past few days. Nice to see things to root for and, potentially, get excited about.

Not trying to be Debbie Downer here, but is it because we are the only one who's offered him?
