Wide receiver Brice Butler, who announced after the 2010 season that he planned to transfer, has had a change of heart and will remain a member of the USC football team.
"We are pleased with Brice's decision to continue his development as a student-athlete at USC," said Trojan head coach Lane Kiffin.
Butler, who will be a junior this fall, has 29 career receptions with 3 touchdowns. The native of Norcross, Ga., caught 9 passes with a TD in 2010 after grabbing 20 passes with 2 scores in his 2009 redshirt freshman year.
He did not participate in 2011 spring practice, but remained in school at USC.
