Butler Lands 2019 Forward John-Michael Mulloy

John-Michael Mulloy Butler

John-Michael Mulloy, the 6-foot-9 power forward from Carmel (IN) High School, announced his commitment to Butler on Wednesday via Twitter.

“It was the school for me,”  Mulloy told D1VISION on Wednesday. “[I] got a feeling that I wanted to be there as soon as I got on campus! It’s very close to home and has one of the best coaching staffs and fan bases in the US.”

Mulloy is the first commit in Butler’s 2019 class. He first received an offer from the Bulldogs last month (Aug. 28) and chose Butler over schools such as Purdue, Indiana, and Syracuse, among others.

Playing with Spiece Indy Heat on the Nike EYBL Circuit this summer, Mulloy averaged 12.4 points and 10.6 rebounds in five games. He is the first commit under new Butler head coach LaVall Jordan.

“I would like to thank my family, coaches, teachers, and friends for the support they have provided me in my life and in basketball,” said Mulloy in a statement released via Twitter. “I would also like to thank all the colleges that have pursued and talked to me these past two years. Thank you to the Carmel community for supporting me in everything I have done! But after talking with my family, I am excited to announce my commitment to Butler University!!”

Butler has not landed any commits in the 2018 class. They are currently in the running for players such as Miller Kopp, who took an official visit this past weekend (Sept. 1).

“They play hard 100 percent of the time,” said Mulloy on Butler. “That’s what I pride myself on and their team orientated play falls directly into what kind of player I am.”
