Offers piling up for Butler

Devin Butler has been receiving a lot of good news lately.

The 6-foot-1, 170-pound athlete from Washington (D.C.) Gonzaga now has a solid offer list and those offers continue to roll in.

On Saturday he picked up an offer from West Virginia. Later that day he learned that Northern Illinois had offered as well, and then Baylor offered today.

"I was at West Virginia on Saturday," Butler recalled. "That was the only place I've been to recently besides Boston College at the end of January.

"I'm going to Virginia on Saturday and the North Carolina the weekend after that."

The Mountaineers made a strong early impression on the D.C. standout.

"It was nice. The countryside was nice," he said. "It was serene. There aren't a lot of distractions."

Virginia has not offered but the UVa coaches told Butler they plan on offering when he visits the school this weekend.

"At this point I don't really have any favorites," he added. "I'm weighing them all on the same scale. I'll start to narrow it down later on."
