Butts backs off Rutgers pledge
LeRoy Butts is back on the market. Butts, who is transferring to Delray Beach (Fla.) Elev-8 Prep for his senior season, backed off his pledge to Rutgers on Monday. "I want to see what other schools I can get," Butts told Scout.com when asked about the decommitment. "I just want to look at other schools that's all," he added. "Basically I have a good relationship with Eddie [Jordan]. I talked to him yesterday about it. He said regardless if I come to Rutgers he'll still love me and he still wants me and I'd always have a place at Rutgers." Prior to committing to Rutgers, Butts had considered Cincinnati, Miami, DePaul, WVU, Tennessee and Georgetown. As a junior at Upper Marlboro (Md.) Clinton Christian, Butts, a three-star power forward, said he averaged 15 points and 12 rebounds a game.
