Admittedly, Butler was a fish out of water when it came to the recruiting process. This past year was his first in the Development Academy and he surely made the most of it. Ranked No. 146 on the Top 150 list, he is a hard-working defender notable for his toughness and fitness.    

Butler brings a competitive mentality from playing other sports and isn’t afraid to mix things up – something we can expect him to do next season in the Ivy League.

In other boys’ commitments:

Ben Bakke (Minnesota Thunder Academy) has verbally committed to Creighton for the 2013 season.

A versatile player, Bakke is excited about joining the College Cup program from a season ago.
“Creighton has an amazing soccer tradition and their coaches are tops in the country,” he said. “I'm excited to be in their program and was equally impressed with Creighton's high academic standards and beautiful campus.”
