Georgia WR Butler high on LSU's priority list

LSU seems to always find a way to replenish its receiving corps and right now they are hoping that Georgia native Brice Butler (6-3, 185, 4.45) will be the next one to don the purple and gold.

Last season, Butler shared catches with another top receiver and still managed 35 receptions for 680 yards and nine touchdowns.


So far, the Norcross product has received 15 offers from schools like LSU, Louisville, Arizona State, Oregon State, California, Fresno State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech, Florida State, Mississippi State and Auburn.


"I don't have a favorite right now because I haven't been able to visit any schools yet," said Butler. "I know a lot about all the schools right now so there are no schools I want to know more about."


Butler will find out more about LSU next weekend when he makes the drive down to Baton Rouge.


"I talked with coach (Bradley Dale) Peveto two nights ago and we just talked about what I'm going to do when I come into town," said Butler. "I'm pretty excited. I'm coming in next Friday to take an unofficial visit and my friend (Justin Tuggle) and his dad (Jessie Tuggle) are coming to. We're going to check out the campus and get to watch a practice."

Butler said he is coming on the trip partly because of the good relationship he has built with Peveto.


"He is very exciting to talk to," said Butler. "He talks so highly of LSU that it gets me excited about it, too. I like LSU because of the fact that I can go there and play. I know they just lost some good receivers. They are a good team and they are known for having good quarterbacks and good coaches."


Butler also said that LSU has been recruiting hardest of all the other schools.


"I think LSU has the perfect offense for me," said Butler. "They throw the ball a lot, and I know if I go there I'll be in an offense where I can thrive."


Note** Butler has a 3.0 GPA and is taking the SAT this Saturday.
