LeMay to Frost: Butler's prime connection?

Butler High will be loaded with senior talent this season, but there is still more in the pipeline, starting with quarterback Christian LeMay and wide receiver Kris Frost. Both are rising juniors and both attended Sunday's combine and played well enough to attract more attention.

LeMay in particular impressed; he's already 6-foot-2 and 190 pounds, and could grow still more. He threw the ball well in one-on-one drills at West Charlotte High.

"LeMay may be one of the best players in the country next year," said recruiting analyst Chad Simmons. "Great release, great balance, and he's a very mature kid. He's smooth, he's not rushed, he's patient. He throws the deep ball well, the underneath ball well.

"He looks like a miniature Daunte Culpepper, very sculpted physically."

LeMay already has offers from Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest.

Frost, who had four catches as a sophomore, is 6-3 and 200 pounds, and is attracting attention as schools wait to see his performance on the field. He's due for considerably more playing time in the fall.
