Butler has not necessarily completed basketball recruiting for the 2016 class.
The Bulldogs, who have a scholarship available, are again looking at 6-2 guard Eron Gordon of Cathedral High School. Coach Chris Holtmann also made a recent visit to Westerville (Ohio) South to evaluate 6-7 wing Andre Wesson.
Both players are uncommitted seniors. Neither has a formal offer from Butler. The Bulldogs could stand pat, sign a 2016 high school senior or add a college transfer.
Gordon averaged about 19 points a game for Cathedral (17-6).
His season ended Tuesday in Cathedral’s 58-54 sectional loss to North Central, the school where he began. Holtmann and assistant Michael Lewis were there to watch him and North Central’s Kris Wilkes, who is ranked 12th by Rivals in the 2017 class.
Gordon was inside Hinkle Fieldhouse on Wednesday to watch Butler’s 85-78 victory over Seton Hall.
He has at various times been pursued by Arizona State, Auburn, Memphis, LSU and Seton Hall, as well as Indiana, Purdue and Butler. He is ranked 107th by Rivals in the 2016 class.
Wesson is the older brother of Kaleb Wesson, who has made an oral commitment to Ohio State. The brothers’ father, Keith, played for the Buckeyes in the mid-1980s. Ohio State has one scholarship available.
Andre Wesson was Ohio Capital Conference player of the year, averaging 17.5 points. Westerville South (21-4) was ranked 10th in Ohio’s final Associated Press Division I poll. The Wesson brothers helped Westerville South to a 27-2 record and state championship game appearance a year ago.
Andre Wesson has reported offers from Xavier, Richmond, George Mason, Illinois State, Akron and Toledo.
