State 4AA champion Butler has six rising seniors who are likely to have offers from major programs before the May evaluation period for recruiters concludes.
“All six will have big-time BCS offers,” said coach Mike Newsome this afternoon.
A quick look at the six:
*Christian LeMay, QB: A national talent of the first order. “I don’t even count his offers anymore,” Newsome said. “He can get one from any school he’s interested in, from Alabama on down.”
*Kris Frost, LB: Another player expected to be recruited on a national scale, he’s received his first written offer, from North Carolina. But he also has a few verbals, including one from Michigan. “He’s always been a Michigan fan; wearing Michigan shorts and T-shirts to practice ever since he started here,” Newsome said. “Any school that wants to beat them will have to work real hard.”
*Mark Bridges, DB: Newsome believes that Cincinnati will soon offer, with more to come.
*Jawuan Edwards, RB: Powerful at 6-foot and 220 pounds, and fast for his size.
*Deion Walker, Ath: Great speed and athleticism. Can play DB or RB.
*Colin Parsons, DL: Already 6-3 and 235 pounds, and could get bigger.
All of which simply means that Butler will be tough again next fall.
