Another Strong Camp For Butler
Lakewood St. Edward rising junior Tony Butler has impressed the Scout recruiting team this off season at both the Raw Talent Sports and the recent Ohio State camp. Butler, 6-foot-3, 195-pounds, worked out as a cornerback at Ohio State and was promoted to the top group by assistant coach Chris Ash. He probably projects as a safety or wide receiver at the next level. "This was a different type camp because the competition was so good, but I got after it and did pretty well," Butler stated. "I hurt my groin at the end, so that stopped me. Ohio State wanted me to work out strictly as a defensive back, not wide receiver, so that's what I did." "I spoke with Coach Ash, and he told me to work on getting quicker feet to explode more, so that gives me something to work on," he added. On a recent bus tour with Raw Talent, Butler also worked for Tennessee and Michigan State. "Michigan State had seen me earlier at Raw Talent, so going to their camp really helped me with them," he explained. "They said they will be watching me closely this season, and they have me on their board." "Tennessee was my best camp and I did my best there," he continued. "I locked down some BCS wide receivers, and the coaching staff said they were impressed. I was in the top group and covered everyone they put me up against. I love to compete, so I love these camps." Being so versatile, Butler only increases his value with college coaches because he can play numerous positions. "I play all over the place at St. Edward," Butler admitted. "Ohio State wanted to see me at cornerback, while Michigan State wanted me to work out at safety. Tennessee also saw me as a cornerback, but it doesn't matter to me what position I play." Butler holds an offer from Toledo at this time. He will be ranked as one of Ohio's top 2016 prospects.
