2016 Western Michigan football recruiting: Broncos offer DB Tony Butler

See what the three-star prospect has to say about his offer from the Broncos.

Student Sports

Fresh off signing a very solid class of 2015 prospects earlier this month, the Western Michigan coaching staff have wasted no time hitting the recruiting trail hard searching for another talented bunch of future Broncos. Days before they will play host to a rather large group of recruits on campus for Junior Day, P.J. Fleck, and his assistants have dealt out quite a few scholarship offers to some of the most talented recruits in the Midwest region.

Earlier today one of the recruits the Broncos offered was class of 2016 defensive back Tony Butler of Ohio power house Lakewood St. Edward.

"Coach Simon told me to call him. I also talked to the head coach (P.J. Fleck). They said they loved my film, and want me to be a part of WMU. They think I can make an impact as soon as possible." The three-star cornerback told Hustle Belt soon after hearing from the staff.

The 6'2 195 pound standout now holds 10 offers. One of the more sought after athletes in Ohio, WMU joins the likes of Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Purdue, Bowling Green, Miami and Toledo on his growing scholarship list.

While a lot of players are heading to Western Michigan this weekend, Butler won't be one of them. After recently checking out what the Miami RedHawks, and the Ohio State Buckeyes have to offer, Tony will hit up the Penn State campus later this month on the 28th.
