Ohio native Jake Butt considering Michigan 

September, 12, 2011
Jake Butt doesn't hide the fact that he's a huge Ohio State fan. The junior linebacker at Pickerington North grew up just 30 minutes from Ohio Stadium and plans to attend a few games this year after already going to the Buckeyes' season-opening win.

That doesn't mean one of Ohio's top Class of 2013 prospects is already a Buckeye lean, though. In fact, Butt (6-foot-6, 225 pounds) spent this past weekend in Ann Arbor visiting Michigan for its game against Notre Dame.

It was the first night game in Michigan Stadium history and is already the early favorite for game of the rear for 2011. All 114,804 fans -- a record for any college football game ever -- left the Big House speechless after the back-and-forth final quarter, Butt included.
