Former Okemos standout Chris Harrison-Docks is entering his freshman season at Butler, and is reportedly in the mix for playing time at one of the team’s guard spots. From David Woods of the Indianapolis Star:
Chrishawn Hopkins was dismissed from the team Sept. 12, leaving a scramble for the backcourt spot opposite Clarke. Stevens said Hopkins “wasn’t necessarily going to be” a starter anyway. Ultimately, the job is open for Dunham, the Indiana high school scoring champion from Pendleton Heights, though senior Chase Stigall, a starter for the 2010 NCAA runners-up, could open the season in the lineup.
They could also use one of three point guards: sophomore Jackson Aldridge, who was benched at the end of last season; sophomore walk-on Alex Barlow, who averaged 20 minutes in three games of the College Basketball Invitational, or freshman Chris Harrison-Docks.
Harrison-Docks is a point guard by trade, and that’s also probably the position where he’ll see the most minutes down the road in college, but he is also a great shooter, so he could certainly help Butler at that off-guard spot vacated by Hopkins in a pinch.
