It’s October, which means Ohio State is trying to steal a Kentucky football commit. It’s a tradition unlike any other.
Saturday night Toledo Whitmer three-star defensive tackle Cavon Butler took an unofficial visit to Ohio State. He left Columbus with a scholarship offer.
On August 9, Butler was the first interior defensive lineman to commit to the Cats 2019 class. Recruited by Vince Marrow, Butler will officially visit Kentucky later this fall. He also has official visits planned at Michigan State and now Ohio State. He’ll be in attendance when the Buckeyes play Michigan at the shoe.
“I’m just going to finish out the semester strong and worry about finishing my high school season and having fun, then have my decision close to signing day,” Butler told 247 Sports.
Vince Marrow’s been down this road before. He’s won some big battles vs. Ohio State near signing day, like Chris Oats, but he hasn’t won them all. Time will tell if Marrow can hold onto a commitment from the nation’s No. 57 defensive tackle who is from the Big Dog’s old stomping grounds.
