Hey Bobo - Here's an answer at receiver

This caught my eye this morning. Brice Butler was a star at Norcross but chose to go across country to play for Pete Carrol and the USC Trojans. Apparently, he did not fit into Kiffin's system, only catching 9 passes this season. The article says he is planning to transfer to an FCS school so he can play immediately, but how hard would it be to convince him to come home to Georgia, sit out a season and then play for the Bulldogs?

Jarvis Jones was a member of the same recruiting class at USC and decided to come home after things did not work out in LA. Butler could come on campus as a walk-on this fall and not count towards scholarship limits until next season. I know Mike Bobo is tied up with Crowell and Drew right now, but I think this would be a phone call worth making.

Here's a look back at Butler's highlights from his high school career and his freshman season at USC:

I thought kids could leave USC and play immed b/c of the sanctions.

Last year it was juniors and seniors, but this year it is only seniors. The idea being that they can transfer without sitting out because they will not have a chance to play in a bowl game.

He surprised me this year. We will need him to step up even more with Williams most likely gone next season. Amanda Vanderpool
