Bulldogs add a Golden touch to incoming recruiting class

INDIANAPOLIS — Forward Bryce Golden, who averaged 15 points and eight rebounds during his senior season at Saint James School in Hagerstown, Maryland, will play college basketball at Butler.

The 6-foot-9 Golden joins 6-7 forward Markeese Hastings of Wyoming, Michigan, as the second recruit in the Bulldogs’ fall recruiting class. Hastings signed his national letter-of-intent in November.

Golden, who grew up in Winchester, Virginia, helped lead Saint James to its first conference crown in 15 years.

Butler coach LaVall Jordan announced the signing Thursday.
