Darius Thompson will take an official visit to Butler this weekend, according to his coach at Blackman (TN) High School.

“Butler has done a good job of recruiting Darius,” coach Barry Wortman said. “There’s a good comfort level with them as well as Murray State and Middle Tennessee State.”

Thompson, a 6-foot-3 guard, averaged 12.8 points and 6.0 assists last season for Blackman.

“Darius has a high, high basketball IQ,” Wortman said. “A very good feel for the game. Sneaky athletic. He shoots the ball well from 3, can get out on the point, can play off the ball.”
