"My favorite is Florida and they have always been my favorite," Butler said. "They have a great staff and program and it's a great place to be. I went to a couple of Gator games last year but left early because they were all blowouts. I talk to Coach Strong and Coach Meyer. I would fit in really well with them and it would be real exciting to be a part of that. That's every man's dream in life, and I plan on being there for spring practice and some games this season. I like how the coaches coach, playing time, the overall program, the school and the team."
B.J. Butler is one of the top defensive players in the state and clearly favors the Gators. He is not in a rush to make a decision and isn't sure if he will do so before or after his senior season. If he attends all the events he plans on then I see him in this class. It is a long way to National Signing Day.
