Butler Gets Offer

Asheville (NC) star Crezdon Butler picked up his third scholarship offer on Wednesday, as the NC State Wolfpack officially entered the race for his services.

"Recruiting is going pretty good for me," Crezdon Butler told Pack Pride. "I got an offer in the mail yesterday from North Carolina State. I was excited about it, and at the same time I was surprised. They had been sending me letters, but nothing telling me an offer was coming. So when it came in the mail I was surprised, but it's exciting because NC State's a good school."

"I now have offers from UNC, North Carolina State, and Wake Forest," Butler added. "Virginia and Clemson are pretty close to offering too. They've been sending me letters saying they are going to offer, so I should get them soon."

A standout at several positions for Asheville (NC) High School, Butler flourished at quarterback as a junior. He passed for 764 yards, and added another 1,445 yards on the ground for a total of 16 touchdowns on offense.

"He is such a great kid, the only question he asked was if he could wear the No. 5," said Asheville head coach Danny Wilkins, who granted the request and found a star at the position.

On the next level, Butler won't play quarterback, as the 6'1, 175-pound athlete will likely end up at cornerback or wide receiver.

"That's what the coaches are telling me," Butler said when asked about playing the skill positions. "I kind of like playing wide receiver more, but I'm probably better as a cover corner.

"The colleges are recruiting me for both," he added. "UNC wants me as a wide receiver, and I think all the others like me at cornerback."

As for a leader, it's still too early in the process, although three ACC schools probably standout at this point.

"I like the coaches, and I like all the schools," Butler said. "Now I just need to get familiar with them. You can probably say that Virginia, UNC, and Clemson are ahead because I've been to see them already.

"But, I'm just going to play things out. I want to see who all will offer, visit the schools, and just take it from there."

Butler will be attending Scout.com's U.S. Army All-American Bowl Combine which is held next weekend on the campus of Duke University.
