Jordan Butler, a 7-footer and 4-star post player out of Greenville, S.C. (Christ Church Episcopal School), has announced a commitment to play in the SEC.
Butler committed to Missouri over Auburn and South Carolina, and he’s ranked the No. 15 center in the class of 2023, and No. 2 player in the state of South Carolina, according to the 247Sports Composite.
Butler is the third commit for Missouri in the 2023 class, after point guard Anthony Robinson, and power forward Trent Pierce.

During his junior season at Christ Church Episcopal, Butler averaged 14.4 points per game, 8.1 rebounds and 3.8 blocks per game.
Charlton Young, a Missouri assistant, gets credit for this commitment. Young recruited John Butler, Jordan’s brother, to Florida State when Young was an assistant coach with the Seminoles, the Columbia Daily Tribune reported. John Butler declared for the 2022 NBA Draft after his freshman season and has reportedly signed a two-way contract with the New Orleans Pelicans.
