Butler has visited Salt Lake City before, but never been on campus at Utah. He has a trip pending in April and is excited to see the academic and athletic facilities.
"Utah has a great criminal justice program and that's important to me. I haven't made a trip out their yet, but I have been looking at them online and will be coming out for the spring game."

"I've had a lot of schools in contact like Auburn, Arizona, and Kansas State, but Utah is the best school for me."

"I'll probably play receiver, but may corner. I'm also going to be on special teams returning kicks and punts."
