Abrams Visiting C-USA School This Weekend

It's taken a while for recruiting to pick up for 2017 Butler RB Kevon Abrams (5-10, 185), but he's up to two offers now and this weekend he'll take his first official visit...


"I have offers right now from Charlotte and South Alabama," Abrams told JCFootball.com. "I'm visiting Charlotte this weekend too. I'm excited!"

As a sophomore this past season at Butler, Abrams led the way with 1,166 yards and nine touchdowns on 185 carries.

"I'm a speed back that likes to get down hill, but I also have some power," Abrams said back in September. "I run better between the tackles, but I also can do some damage outside. My offensive line opens holes for me to get through.

"I have good vision, quickness and patience at running back because patience is the key. Without those it'll be hard to succeed at that position."

This past offseason, Abrams took a hard look at what he needed to work on and he settled on a few things to focus on.

"I just worked on getting bigger stronger and faster," Abrams said. "I didn't play last season because I've got redshirted and I knew during the summer if I put the work in that I could turn people's heads.I've just been humbled and hungry and been anxious to get on the field to show the talent I have that God blessed me with."

Abrams prepped at Pensacola (Fl.) High School and he was a sought-after recruit, however, he was unable to get qualified, so he opted to take the JUCO route to help him get his academics in order and also to get on the radar with more schools.

"My high school coaches helped me get to Butler and when I heard how good of a program Butler was I was excited to be here," Abrams recalled. "Since I've been at Butler a lot has changed for me. They pushed me to work harder and get better and they are big on grades. They make sure you go to class and have your grades together. This is one of the best JUCOs to be at and I'm glad that I came here to play football and get my education."

Abrams is on pace to finish up his two-year degree in May and he will have three years to play three following the 2016 football season.
