OTTAWA, Kan. – The Ottawa University men's basketball program is pleased to announce the signing of Kris Butts for the 2017-18 season. Butts is from Lee's Summit, Mo. and is a transfer from Graceland University. He attended Blue Springs South High School.
At Graceland University, Butts earned two letters on the basketball court. He appeared in 24 games for the Yellowjackets. While at Blue Springs South High School, Butts lettered in basketball and football for the Jaguars.
"Kris is a talented combo guard," said OU head men's basketball coach Aaron Siebenthall. "He brings skill and experience to our program. He can really score the ball but knows when to get his teammates involved and he can really guard the ball. We are very happy Kris has decided to transfer to Ottawa."
Butts is the son of Stephanie Shane and plans to major in computer science and information technology.
