Buttell played three seasons at UIC (2007-10), competing in 88 games and garnering 60 starts. In 2009-10, Buttell ranked fifth in the Horizon League with 7.5 rebounds per game, while producing five double-doubles, including four in the final five games of the season.
As a junior (2008-09), Buttell played in 26 games, and turned in four double-digit rebounding efforts. He averaged 7.8 rebounds over the final 12 contests. In his first season as a Flame (2007-08), Buttell started 15 of the 33 games in which he played in.
Buttell began his college career at Texas Tech (2005-06), playing one season under legendary head coach Bob Knight and current UIC assistant coach Stew Robinson. He played in 19 games as a true freshman before transferring to UIC.
A native of Colleyville, Texas, Buttell earned his Bachelor's Degree in Communications at UIC in 2009 and a Master's in education instructional leadership in 2010, earning the graduate degree with a spotless 4.0 grade-point-average.
