Butler is back from LSU

The LSU staff entertained two of the top prospects from the Peach State over the weekend and on his first unofficial visit of the year, standout receiver Brice Butler was very impressed with what he saw.

"My trip was real nice," said Butler. "LSU is a real good place to be. I really enjoyed myself and had a good time."

 On his trip, Butler got a chance to see all of the facilities that LSU players have at their disposal but he also got a good chance to see what it was like to be a Tiger away from the field.

 "I got to watch a scrimmage and then hang out with the players," said Butler. "I mostly got to know Early Doucet and some of the other guys. We hung out at their apartment and talked about stuff. They basically just answered all my questions about LSU."

 Butler said that he enjoyed the scrimmage and that he would be a good fit in the offense.

 "I could see myself playing with these guys," said Butler. "Their bodies are bigger, but I think I could hang with them. There quarterback can put the ball anywhere and they have four or five running backs, so they'll be able to open up the pass for their receivers to make plays."

 Les Miles sat down with the Georgia product for about 20 minutes but rather than just talk about football he reiterated the importance of education.

 "We talked a little about the depth chart and how I would have a good opportunity to come in and play wide receiver," said Butler. "We mostly talked about earning a degree and how that was his number one priority."

 Butler said the most important thing he found out about LSU on his visit, was how dedicated to academics the school is.

 "Their educational facility is off the charts," said Butler. "You cannot fail at all. Unless you just don't care about your grades, they are going to make sure you earn your degree."

 So how does this trip affect LSU's status on Butler's list?

 "Well, I don't really have a top five right now, but I had a group of 10 schools that I liked," said Butler. "LSU moves way up there, now. This was my first unofficial visit, so I can't really compare it, but it was great and moved LSU high up there."
