Andrew, a sophomore at Georgia's Alpharetta High School, visited Clemson in March for the Junior Day event.

He returned a month later for the annual Orange and White game.

"It was a really nice visit. It was just nice to see all of the players in action and tour around the school a little bit more," Butcher told CUTigers earlier this week.

The 6-foot-3, 225-pound prospect saw something new while on campus for the spring game visit.

"I got to see the academics center this time, which was a nice experience. That's real important for me," Butcher said.

He also spoke with running backs coach Tony Elliott and defensive ends coach Marion Hobby.

"They just told me to keep on working and getting bigger, and they'll be around," Butcher said.

What stood out about the spring game?

"It was nice to see all the talent that Clemson has right now. I left after the second half, the beginning of it."

Butcher added, "Sammy Watkins looks good, like always. Martavis Bryant did well also."

His final visit of the spring will be this weekend for the spring game at Tennessee.

Tennessee, West Virginia and Utah and have offered.

As a sophomore, Butcher had 55 tackles and eight sacks. Top Stories
