Syracuse Gets their Wide Receiver in Devin Butler

Devin Butler has committed to Syracuse during an official visit.

Syracuse already has one prospect who will play wide receiver for them in Sean Riley, but they wanted to add at least one more playmaker to the position. They did so over the weekend by snagging 6-foot-3 Devin Butler during his official visit. 

"I felt the love," Butler said. "All the coaches showed me so much love. It's a great campus. The players and people were the type I wanted to be around. It's family out there."

Butler is a former Maryland commit who reopened his recruitment amidst their coaching change. Scout has him listed as a safety prospect, but the three-star talent is coming into Syracuse as a wide receiver. With his size and speed as a track star, it is easy to see why the Orange feel he is a perfect fit for the Dino Babers' offense. 

The Frederick Douglass High standout also wants to run track in college, something the Syracuse coaches no doubt worked out with him before he pulled the trigger. 

Butler gives Syracuse another offensive threat along with Riley, but has more size and a longer frame. He will play on the outside while Riley will play in the slot while also spending time in the backfield. With the addition of those two players, Syracuse is getting faster and more dynamic on the offensive side of the ball.
