DE Matthew Butler of Garner, NC will see two of his favorites go head to head this Saturday when he visits USC for the Texas A&M game. But this will be an unofficial visit, not official. Butler will visit with his mom and other members of his family.
Butler had originally planned to make an official visit to USC and may still do that down the road. He said if this visit goes well enough and he feels good enough about things there won’t be a need for an official visit. If not, he may return for an official visit.
Texas A&M has recently emerged as a major player with Butler. Defensive coordinator John Chavis checked on him last spring and has remained in regular contact. If Butler decides not to return to USC for an official visit, he could use that for a trip to College Station.
Butler has taken official visits to Duke and Penn State and he said he will take two other officials to Tennessee and NC State as planned. He said he talked with USC recruiter Lance Thompson Sunday primarily about plans for his visit this weekend.
