Clemson made the top four schools for 3-star 2016 defensive back Tony Butler from Lakewood, Ohio (St. Edward HS) on Friday afternoon according to his twitter account.

His top four schools are now Clemson, Rutgers, Michigan and Arizona State.

TigerNet spoke with Butler on Tuesday and he was very happy with the Clemson offer. "It's a huge offer and words can't describe how happy I am," said Butler.

He said that Clemson defensive back coach Mike Reed has already made a big impression. "The coaching staff is pretty cool, Coach Reed was very honest with me and just told me that he feel like I'm the real deal and I can make a impact early. But I'm going to have to want it and want to get better everyday. He didn't promise me anything."

The 3-star recruit said that Clemson is recruiting him as a cornerback.

As a junior, Butler had 27 tackles, 10 pass break ups, three interceptions and a forced fumble.

He told us that he plans to take an official visit to TigerTown at some point in the recruiting process.
