After initially saying he knows where he wants to go to college, Leroy Butts is now undecided.
“My options are open,” Butts told SNY.tv Wednesday. “I’m open about my choice. I’m not announcing my commitment date, either.”
The 6-foot-8, 195-pound power forward from Arlington (Va.) Bishop O’Connell is being courted by Rutgers, Miami, Cincinnati, DePaul and West Virginia, among others.
He visited Rutgers this past weekend for the football game with Arkansas, along with numerous other young prospects, including Isaiah Briscoe.
“It was great, I had a fun time,” said Butts, the Rivals No. 114 prospect in the Class of 2015.
Asked what he’s looking for in a school, he said: “I’m looking for a great education and to win a championship.”
Asked what skillset he will bring, he said, “Scoring, rebounding, athleticism.”
