Brian Butch announced at his press conference from Appleton West High School that he will stay in-state and play for the Badgers.
Butch made his final decision last night, calling coaches at North Carolina, Marquette and Kansas to inform them of his announcement.
Butch cited his comfort level with the Badger coaching staff and players as the No. 1 reason behind his decision.
"I just felt it was the best place for me to go, as a player, person and academically," Butch said.
