RE: Recruiting 2017-18
I hope Butler is a walk-on. Why would we take a transfer that didn't do much at Navy???

This pick-up and his absence from the roster confirms that Major is not playing for Drexel any more.

Looks like an interesting pickup. Definitely seems there is potential there, and would still have three years.

He didn't do much because he was a freshman that didn't get a lot of opportunities and decided to leave after 12 games.

According to Verbal Commits, Drexel signed a 6'10" center from Finley Prep - Tadas Kararinas? Anyone know anything about him?

RE: Tadas Kararinas - Looks like it's Findlay Prep, Henderson NV, and he's from Lithuania. Don't know if there's any confirmation.

Looks like he played for the U19 and U20 Lithuania teams . and didn't play many minutes. Looks like he didn't play much at Findlay Prep either, but their roster is usually loaded with high level Div I talent. According to Verbal Commits he is part of this year's class so he would be eligible this year? Nothing on the DD site though.

RE: Recruiting 2017-18
As Spearsie mentions, he played for some Lithuanian youth teams. He was in the same European U20 tournament as Kari this summer. He played garbage time in a couple of games. Here are a couple of videos - he is #10 for Lithuania. As foreign big guys go, he is more in the mold of Goran than Elegar. He appears to have a decent mid-range shot.

Latvia - he enters at about 1:39:00 - scores at about 1:48:50

Germany - he enters at about 1:23:30, he attempts an almost 3-pt shot soon after that, then makes a shot around 1:35:10
