One of the top football recruits in the country for the 2024 class has committed to Colorado.
On Tuesday, Aaron Butler, a four-star athlete from Calabasas (Calif.) High School announced his verbal pledge to the Buffs.
Considered an elite prospect at cornerback and receiver, Butler is likely to play on offense at CU. He is rated as the No. 95 overall prospect in the country for the 2024 class by the 247Sports.com composite rankings, which also has him ranked No. 12 in the state of California.
Butler verbally committed to USC on Jan. 29, 2022, but de-committed on Jan. 11. The highly-regarded Butler has 32 scholarship offers, including from Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Michigan, Notre Dame, Oklahoma and 10 teams in the Pac-12.
As a junior last year, Butler caught 38 passes for 830 yards and 13 touchdowns, averaging 21.8 yards per reception. He also rushed the ball twice for 60 yards and two touchdowns. On defense, he had 15 tackles and one interception.
Butler’s father, Robb, played with current CU head coach Deion Sanders with the Baltimore Ravens in 2005.
