Butler arrived in Lexington as a three-star prospect in 2019. He held offers from Ohio State, Alabama and Michigan State, among others, but chose the Wildcats instead. As a true freshman, he made just one total tackle as a true freshman and held onto his redshirt as he did not play more than the four-game limit.
He will now head to the MAC and Toledo to play for a Rockets program coming off a 6-6 2019 season that included a 38-14 week one loss to the Wildcats.
