You likely know by now that Aaron Butler, a four-star cornerback from Calabasas, California, spent nearly a year committed to the USC Trojans after pledging last January, but he reopened his recruitment this month. Butler told On3 that USC had a successful season but he needed to take a step back and reevaluate his future.
As a junior, Butler racked up 830 yards and 13 touchdowns receiving with 15 tackles, 4 pass break-ups and one interception at corner.
Butler is the No. 65 player in the country in 2024 class on the 247Sports composite.
“Schools like Alabama, Colorado, Georgia, Tennessee are up there,” he added. “These schools are doing a great job with me and making me feel like a priority. LSU is another one, and Oregon has picked it up, too. They are on me hard. Notre Dame, Michigan State and Texas A&M are three more showing me a lot of interest. … When I committed to USC early on, I didn’t have the knowledge about everything that I have now. I am looking at this decision differently.”
According to 247Sports, Butler said he plans to trim his list to 10-12 schools. Among those he is considering are Washington, Tennessee, Oregon, Georgia, Alabama, Colorado, LSU and Texas A&M.
