Williamsburg, KY – Following a 21-10 seasoned that ended with their fifth straight trip to the NAIA national tournament, Head Coach Don Butcher has announced the signed of 6’3 combo guard Danny Butt. Butt spent time at two local high schools, first Pulaski Southwestern before finishing his prep career at Pulaski County High School.
“Danny is a kid we have spent a lot of time recruiting. Anytime we can sign a local kid that is the caliber of player that Danny is makes it really exciting for us,” said Butcher. “Danny will bring a lot of versatility to our team. He is a big, powerful guard who can play all three perimeter spots. He is a high IQ kid who understands how to play the game and get other people open shots. We will also rely on his ability to shoot the ball from the perimeter. Additionally, the thing we love most about Danny is that he is completely bought into being a Patriot and will be a great ambassador for our university on and off the floor.”
Butt had a standout prep career. For his career, he scored 1539 points, collected 677 rebounds, and dished out 607 assist. As a junior at Pulaski County High School, he led his team to the 47th district championship and the 12th region championship, earning a berth in the KHSAA state tournament. As a senior, he helped his team repeat as 47th district champions. Butt was selected as a three time all-district player and a two time all-region player.
“From day one the coaches treated me like family,” said Butt. “University of the Cumberlands felt like home and I’m excited to be a Patriot.”
