Butler Makes the Call

The College of Sequoias (Calif.) safety, Stormey Butler, is headed to play in the Big 12...

After overcoming a major health scare as a teenager, College of Sequoias (Calif.) safety Stormey Butler now has his college future clearly placed in front of him.

Butler signed with UConn in 2006, but health issues forced him to miss much of school, and he ended up a non-qualifier.

Six years later, Butler, who is originally from Florida, is in California playing at COS, and he'll be heading to the Midlands to play his college football.

"Stormey just committed to play at Texas Tech," said COS defensive backs coach Fred Zepeda. "Coach John Lovett was recruiting him."

Zepeda raved about Butler, especially coming back from the health problems earlier in his career.

"He is a little older because of the problems he had with his leg that caused him to miss school," said Zepeda. "But he got back on track and now he's going to play for us this year, before going to Texas Tech in January. He'll be a three-for-two guy."

The 5-11, 188-pounder, was the fourth player for COS to land a BCS offer.

Brandon is in his eighth year with Scout.com and FOXSportsNext, currently as a National Recruiting Analyst and West Regional Manager. Prior to joining the Scout Recruiting Team, he was a team recruiting writer.  He's been covering recruiting for the Scout Network since 2003.
