Bruins Watching Butler

Dec. 5 -- UCLA is keeping an eye on the Etiwanda (Calif.) 2016 four-star cornerback Treyjohn Butler...

Etiwanda (Calif.) 2016 cornerback Treyjohn Butler (5-11.5, 190) has five offers and after a strong junior year, that number could be growing.

“I have offers from Arizona State, Cal, Washington, Washington State and Northwestern,” said Butler.

The four-star thinks a couple more schools could be joining the mix too.

“I think possibly UCLA and possibly USC could be next closest, and Arizona and Notre Dame,” said Butler.

Butler visited Cal unofficially for the Big Game against Stanford and was at the UCLA-Arizona game earlier in the month.

“Both of those were great times,” said Butler. “At UCLA, I had a chance to talk with Coach Meat (Demetrice Martin) and watch them in action and saw their secondary play lights out. They were coming every play and when you see it translate from the coach to the player, it gets you fired up.”

With two teammates committed to Pac-12 schools and plenty of talent at Etiwanda, its been a frequent stop for colleges.

“A lot more schools are coming by this fall and checking us out,” said Butler.

And his two teammates, linebacker Khaylan Thomas, an Arizona State commit and Washington tight end commit Michael Neal, are recruiting him too.

“Every time I walk by Khaylan, he throws the forks up and every time I see Michael, he’s like ‘bro, you need to be at Washington,” said Butler. “They’re both working on me.”

With a lot of time until he’ll sign, Butler won’t rush his recruitment.

“I want to go through the process, take some time and make the right decision,” said Butler.
