ESPN No. 24 ranked high school senior small forward Christian David will remain at Butler despite head coach Chris Holtmann’s departure to Ohio State earlier this month.


New Bulldogs’ coach LaVall Jordan has convinced David to keep his commitment to the school.


The 6-7 forward averaged 11.9 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 6.1 assists this year for Vermont Academy (Saxtons River, VT).


Last season as a junior, David averaged 13 points and 6 rebounds for VA, leading the school to its first ever NEPSAC AA Championship.


His Vermont Academy coach Alex Popp said the Bulldogs are getting a focused and serious student athlete in David.


“Christian is a class act on and off the court,” Popp told the IndyStar. “Simple dude. It’s basketball, books, friends/family. And that’s really it.”


David, a Canada native who has a massive 6-10 wingspan, is also a gifted and versatile athlete.


“He is very skilled, athletic and long. Not too many of those guys exist,” Popp said to SportsWar. “The cherry on top is his passion for the game. He is a major gym rat.”


North Pole Hoops scout Elias Sbiet loves David’s complete game.


“He’s so well-rounded. He’s the full package,” Sbiet told Pittsburgh Sports Now. “His basketball IQ is exceptional and he’s got multiple skill sets at different positions.”


With David now back in the fold, Butler coach Jordan has now secured most of the school’s 2017 recruits with the exception of No. 86 Sr Kyle Young.
