Meyer Pays Georgia Wide Receiver a Visit

Coach Meyer has made it very clear that he wants to have the fastest team in America. Adding a player like Brice Butler would only further the cause. At 6'2 ½, 190lbs and 4.4 speed, the Norcross (Ga.) wide receiver would be a welcome addition to the spread offense of the Florida Gators.

Butler had this to say on the Gators: "I really like Coach Meyer and Coach Gonzalez they seem like real cool guys, Meyer was at my school Wednesday." Butler holds offers from Arizona State, Florida, Florida State, Georgia and many more. He has been to two junior days so far and spoke about both:

Penn State: "They have a great team and are a real family; Joe Paterno is a great Coach."

Florida St: "I had a good time at Florida State. Most people think that because my dad played defensive back in Tallahassee that they have the edge, but they are equal with the rest."

Former Florida State and Atlanta Falcons defensive back Bobby Butler has given his son some fatherly advice when it comes to recruiting. "When we went to my junior day visits, my dad was telling me to pay close attention to the players that the coaches give the most love to. That's how you tell which players they really want." So which coaches have been giving Butler the most love? "To be honest with you, all of them have shown me a ton of interest."

Butler hauled in 35 catches for 680 yards and nine touchdowns last season while sharing catches with former Norcross Blue Devil (Darius Hanks, 07' Crimson Tide signee). He also excels in the classroom where he carries a 3.0 GPA. Florida will look to take as many as four wide receivers in this year's class. Some other names on the board to keep an eye on: Julio Jones, Harry Adams, AJ Jenkins
