The Butler Bulldogs will be one player short when they begin the regular season today versus Elon (Southern) in the EA Sports Maui Invitational. Freshman guard Chris Harrison-Docks announced Friday that he is quitting the team and transferring. Harrison-Docks will finish out the semester at Butler and then transfer. With him leaving before the first regular season game, he keeps his four years of eligibility.
Head coach Brad Stevens responded by commenting, “Certainly, I’m disappointed, but I want to thank him for his effort the last couple of months and wish him nothing but the best from the entire Butler basketball program.”
Chris Harrison-Docks is a 5-11 guard out of Okemos, Michigan and he only played a little bit in Butler’s two exhibition games. In those two games in total he scored two points in only five minutes of game action.
On Friday, Harrison-Docks said “I believe that another school would better compliment me both personally and academically.” He also went on to say, “I want to thank everyone who has supported me during my time here at Butler and may find disappointment in my decision. I wish my teammates and coaches the best of luck.”
The Butler Bulldogs will kick off the regular season today at 2:00 pm versus Elon in the EA Sports Maui Invitational.
