Butler selects Tennessee
By Bill Hodge
Touted Top 100 center/forward Jackie Butler of McComb, Miss/Laurinburg Institute, NC/Massanutten MA, Va., has signed with the Tennessee Vols. Butler had chosen Mississippi State in Class 2003, but did not qualify. He was selected for the McDonald's All-Star Game last year. The Vols recently signed forward Damion Harris of Greenville-Wade Hampton, SC.
Joe Crawford, a Top 100 guard from Detroit-Renaissance, Mich., who decommitted from Michigan, will delay a decision between the Wolverines and Kentucky until the spring signing period.
Top 100 forward Davis Nwankwo of College Park-Georgetown Prep, Md., is considering Arizona, Stanford, Virginia, Georgia Tech and Miami-Florida.
