The Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns men’s basketball team added their second signee of the offseason by getting Blake Butler out of the transfer portal. Butler was ranked the 17th-best junior college prospect in the nation according to jucorecruiting.com.
At the JUCO level, Butler averaged 20.3 points per game in 2022 for East Mississippi Community College. He scored at least 20 points or more in 12 games including a career-high 45 versus Northwest Mississippi Community College back in November.
“Blake is a talented guard with size, length and experience,” said head coach Bob Marlin. “He scores, defends, rebounds and is efficient in all areas. We look forward to him joining our team next month.”
Butler was named to the First Team All-Region 23 Team after leading the Lions to a 21-6 record overall last season. The 6’5″ guard was an NJCAA All-American Honorable Mention and participated in the NJCAA Men’s Coaches Association All-Star Game. Butler also was a First Team All-Region 23 selection as a freshman after averaging 14.5 points and 4.9 rebounds per game.
