from Lakewood, Ohio (St. Edward) on Tuesday according to his twitter account.

Butler was a former Pittsburgh commit but decommitted on July 3 after not visiting the campus. He decided to decommit before taking many visits to other schools.

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.

Clemson defensive back coach Mike Reed has already made an impression with Butler. "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.

He also thinks that Clemson has a "dominating defense" and that Clemson starting cornerback Mackenzie Alexander is a "monster."

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

His top five schools are now Clemson, Michigan, Arizona State, Minnesota and Rutgers. He told us that he plans to take an official visit to TigerTown at some point in the recruiting process.
