Dawgs to offer Butler

Two days ago, Brice Butler was racking up offer upon offer from seemingly everyone but Georgia. That was two days ago.

Butler got a phone call today from Georgia wide receiver coach John Eason letting him know to pay attention to the mail – an offer from Georgia was on the way.

"I talked to Coach Eason," Butler said. "He told me to expect an offer in the mail from Georgia soon."

The Bulldogs are just another in a long line of schools offering a scholarship to Butler. Florida State, Nevada, Louisville, UCLA, LSU, San Diego State, Oregon State, Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech, Washington State, California, Arizona St, Michigan State and Auburn have now all offered along with the Bulldogs.

Georgia is already off to a good start in recruiting receivers as highly-rated A.J. Green has verbally committed to the Bulldogs, and Tavarres King is very high on Georgia. Butler and Cedar Grove's Josh Jarboe are two other high-profile targets the Bulldogs are after. Its possible Georgia could sign all four, but that seems a long way away.

The amount of mail to Butler lately has been overwhelming, he admits. There are too many schools for Butler to name a favorite at this time, he said.

"I don't really have a favorite, and I'm not leaning towards anybody right now. I'm just going to sit back and continue doing what I'm doing right now," said the wide receiver.

Butler said he still expects to get an offer from Southern Cal in the coming days. But, the Norcross native said, Florida State, a school who recently offered him, was a favorite of his growing up.
