USC Wide Receiver Brice Butler Visited Charlie Weis And Kansas Over The Weekend

USC Wide Receiver Brice Butler visited Lawrence over the weekend per Ryan Abraham of USCFootball.com. Actually, here is a photo of Butler shooting hoops inside Allen Fieldhouse (courtesy of Gehrig Dieter).

Butler, a junior, has already graduated, so would be able to transfer to Kansas and play immediately next season for the Jayhawks.

The 6'4" 195 lb wide out hails from Norcross, Georgia and will leave Los Angeles with 41 career receptions for 554 yards and three touchdowns. His best season was his 2009 redshirt freshman season in which he made 20 catches for 292 yards and two touchdowns. He was named to the ESPN.com Pac-10 All-Freshman team for his efforts.

Butler comes from an athletic family as his father Bobby was an All-American defensive back at Florida State before enjoying a career with the Atlanta Falcons from 1981-1982. His brother Brenton played college basketball at Fordham.

Coming out of high school in 2008, Butler was the 79th ranked player nationally and ranked as the 13th best wide receiver in his class. He would go on to play in the prestigious Army All-American Game. He would choose USC over offers from the likes of Florida State, Georgia, Notre Dame, and Penn State.

For a team that is short on talent, Butler would bring a veteran presence to the Jayhawks and likely would be in line to compete for a starting spot. Though he'd only play one year, he'd help bridge the gap until new head coach Charlie Weis could bring in more guys to mold towards his own playing style.
