Class of 2020, 4-Star PG Recruit Myles Tate Commits to Butler

The Butler Bulldogs have another big addition to their Class of 2020 recruiting class, as point guard Myles Tate announced his commitment.

Hailing from Roebuck, South Carolina, the Dorman High School product also received offers from Clemson, Ole Miss, Pittsburgh, Virginia Tech, and South Carolina among others.

At 6’0″, 170 pounds, Tate has been praised for his leadership, tenacity, and overall intangibles on the court. However, he’s also a reliable shot-maker who can create for others as a floor general:

He led his team in scoring with 17 ppg to along with 5.4 apg and 2.3 spg this past season.

247.com ranks Tate as a 4-star recruit and a bubble Top 100 recruit, meaning along with fellow commits Chuck Harris and Myles Wilmoth, Butler already has one of its best ranked recruiting classes in program history:

While his soon-to-be teammate, Harris, also plays point guard. Harris also has the ability to play off-guard, meaning the two can still safely co-exist in a potential Bulldogs’ backcourt.

Tate’s stock was clearing on the upswing, so this is another big addition to an already talented haul for head coach LaVall Jordan and his coaching staff–regardless of how it eventually plays out.
