Louisville commit, OF Dennis Butler III (Simeon, 2024), continues to look like one of the more athletic outfielders in the 2024 class. The 5-foot-7, 165-pound, changes the game on the field with his speed (6.75 laser-timed 60) and his left-handed swing profiles at the top of an order moving forward. Butler stays compact and inside the baseball and creates impressive bat strength for his age and size. Butler consistently lined backspin line-drives into the left-center field gap during his round of BP. The dynamic sophomore is also a natural in the outfield, covering a lot of ground with a quick first step and precise routes.
