San Diego State Commit Lamont Butler Talks About Commitment and High School Career
San Diego State has landed their first commitment in the 2020 class. On Wednesday, Lamont Butler committed to play for Coach Dutcher and the Aztecs. Butler committed to the Aztecs just a few days after taking a visit to the college.
“San Diego State just felt like home for me,” Butler said. “I was blown away on my visit up there and knew that San Diego State was the place for me to be.”
Butler is a 6’1 guard from Riverside, California. He is a standout player in the area.
“It means everything to represent the Riverside area and the IE,” Butler said. “I’m just blessed and honored to be put into this position and I want to one day be someone that others look up to.”
He attends high school at Riverside Poly in his hometown Riverside, California. Heading into his senior season there, he has high expectations set.
“My expectations for my senior year at Poly are to win a league championship and to get back to the CIF Championship game and to win!”
If Butler has the senior season that people are expecting him to than Riverside Poly has a chance at a championship.
Butler’s game has improved while he has been playing in the UAA Gauntlet with West Coast Elite.
“West Coast Elite has been great for me when preparing for the next level because of the top notch , genuine, hardworking people who are apart of the family at West Coast Elite,” Butler said. “The UAA has great talent on the circuit and just competing against this level of guys have helped me tremendously.”
Butler also held offers from Washington, Colorado, Saint Mary’s, Boise State, Weber State, San Diego and a few other schools. But San Diego State was the best fit for him.
Although Butler does have one more high school season left, he has a great chance to make an immediate impact when he arrives to San Diego State University in a little over a year.
