Jimmy Butler NYTimes article
« on: October 28, 2022, 07:14:50 PM »
https://www.nytimes.com/2022/10/27/sports/basketball/nba-jimmy-butler-miami-heat.html

After the season, Butler was weighing several Division I offers, including one from Kentucky. Fulce, who had already committed to Marquette, called Buzz Williams, the team’s new coach, and urged him to sign Butler.

“If you don’t take Jimmy, I’m not coming,” Fulce recalled telling Williams.

A week later, Butler and Fulce made their way to a McDonald’s near campus so that they could use the restaurant’s fax machine. Butler fed his national letter of intent to attend Marquette into the machine.

“He really didn’t know what was coming next,” Fulce said.

So it would appear that it was Fulce, and not Buzz, who "recruited" Jimmy to Marquette.

The article was interesting, but it seems like it just ended. It seemed to be begging for at least a few paragraphs about how while injuries ruined Fulce's career, Jimmy flourished.
