A big development in Ohio DB Tony Butler's recruitment

Lakewood (Ohio) St. Edwards defensive back Tony Butler had a big development in his recruitment today.

Nebraska target Tony Butler, a defensive back from Ohio, is set to announce his decision on January 20. 

It appears one less school might be losing a little ground. Butler, who was thought to be deciding between Nebraska, Arizona State and West Virginia, will now longer be visiting Arizona State this weekend. Butler has already visited Nebraska and West Virginia. 


"All three schools are being considered at this point," said Butler on Thursday night. 

Nebraska defensive back coach Brian Stewart was in Butler's home on Thursdsay night, hitting up the senior recruit on the very first day out of the dead period. 

"The women of the house love his approach on how he's going to take care of me. They are sold on him," said Butler. "It went well." 

The Ohio prep visited Nebraska back in December, during the Huskers' bowl practices. 

"The visit was great and I really learned a lot," Butler said at the time. "I was very impressed with everything at Nebraska. Coming in, I didn't know much, but things have changed for now after seeing Nebraska."

"Nebraska is definitely a program I can see myself at, and there might be a few other recruits."
