Tar Heels halt recruitment of Keith Butler

North Carolina has decided to no longer recruit Keith Butler, reports IC's Zeke Martins, citing sources close to the program.

Butler, a 7-0 center from Philadelphia (PA) Celestial, had officially visited Chapel Hill a week ago.

He visited Miami this past weekend, and is also considering Temple, Illinois and Cincinnati.

Butler has received a qualifying score on the SAT, but has some work to do in the classroom to make up for missing a good portion of school a few years back when his father died.
