Likely Clemson offer shows interest increasing in Butler junior LB/WR Kris Frost

Butler wide receiver linebacker Kris Frost could be the next in a long line of Bulldogs players to become a huge recruiting target. I covered the Bulldogs’ game at East Mecklenburg Friday and learned the unsurprising news that Butler junior QB Christian LeMay would be offered by Clemson—who had a coach in the stands—and the more surprising info that WR/LB Kris Frost, also a junior, might also soon get a bid from the Tigers.

“Kris is an amazing player and he just keeps getting better,” Butler coach Mike Newsome said after watching Frost scoop up a fumbled pitch and take it in for a TD. “He’s going to be one of those five-star, national-recruit guys. The thing with him is, he’s got a motor that doesn’t quit.”

Frost, who is approaching 6-foot-3 and has topped 200 pounds, would like to play offense in college, and has said he likes Michigan; has since he was a kid. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him wind up at LB, though; he is strong and quick and already filling out; he could play at 225 or 230 with no loss of speed in college.

While no one has offered him yet, Clemson had a coach in the stands Friday, and the guy told Newsome that an offer for Frost might be coming soon.
