Butler WR up to four offers

After a solid freshman season, Butler WR Javess Blue (6-1, 195) has already hauled in four offers and a couple of other schools are close. JCFootball.com caught up with the talented wideout recently and he updated us on things including why he chose to join the Grizzlies once he'd finished up high school...

"Butler is the best JC program there is and I felt like if I could do well here, I could do well anywhere," Blue, a graduate of Lake Wales (Fl.) High School in told JCFootball.com. "The coaches here are great and there is so much talent, every day in practice you are facing guys who can play D-1 ball, so I knew it would help get me ready for the next level."

As a freshman in 2011, Blue saw plenty of time in the Grizzlies' receiver rotation finishing with 27 receptions for 586 yards and three touchdowns.

With outstanding quickness to go along with his 4.4 speed, Blue has the natural talents necessary to be one of the best wideouts in the country, however, he knows he still needs to work hard to perfect his craft and that is something he's been doing this offseason.

"I've been working on my route-running a lot," Blue noted. "I've been working on my footwork, getting in and out of my breaks and just being a lot crisper than I was last season. It's just a lot of fine-tuning, but you know, there is always something to work on."

On the recruiting front, Blue has four offers and two other schools are showing quite a bit of interest.

"I have offers from Southern Miss, Texas Tech, Arizona State and Louisiana Tech," Blue said. "All of them offered during spring ball and I know there are some more that have spoken to my coaches about me.

"The other two I've been talking with a lot are Mississippi State and North Texas. They both like me a lot and could offer soon, but they haven't yet, at least to my knowledge they haven't."

Blue is on pace to graduate in December and he will have three years to play two following the 2012 football season.
