Presbyterian College freshman shooting guard Adam Flagler is set to make a transfer decision on Sunday. Per WatchStadium.com’s Jeff Goodman, he’s considering Butler University among potential suitors:
The 6’3″, 170 pound shooting guard from Duluth, Georgia, averaged 15.9 ppg (.438 FG%), 1.3 apg, and 0.8 spg in 30.7 mpg–having made 36 starts in his lone season for the Blue Hose.
He shot an impressive .386% from 3-point range, and per the IndyStar’s David Woods, “He ranked 23rd in the NCAA in total 3s made with 108, a figure exceeded by only three players in Butler history (Darrin Fitzgerald, Rotnei Clarke, Bruce Horan).”
As a result of his exceptional play as a freshman, Flagler earned Big South Freshman of the Year honors.
He would have to sit out next season, but would still have 3 years of eligibility remaining for his next collegiate team.
The Bulldogs have All-Big East Kamar Baldwin entering his senior season and promising 4-star freshman Kamar Baldwin will be joining him soon at shooting guard next season.
Senior wing Henry Baddley will also be presumably competing for minutes at the position in 2019.
However, the Bulldogs could use another scorer for “life after Baldwin”, and the impressive 3-point shooting of Flagler would be a welcome addition at the fieldhouse–where Butler simply couldn’t get enough of it last season.
Update (7:40 EST): It looks like Flagler will make his decision on Monday.
Update (9:39 PM EST): Flagler has opted to transfer to Baylor instead.
