WolverineNation: Jake Butt Interview

Chantel Jennings talks to Michigan commit Jake Butt about the 37-0 win for Pickerington North (Ohio) over its crosstown rival and Butt's decision to enroll early in Ann Arbor.

PICKERINGTON, Ohio -- Pickerington North High School senior Jake Butt doesn't mind getting dirty. It's bound to happen, given that he plays both ways for the Panthers.

The 2013 Michigan commit will be a tight end for the Wolverines, but he also is playing linebacker this season -- twice the effort, twice the chance to sully his white away uniform.

"He plays hard and he's never going to let you down with his effort," Pickerington North coach Tom Phillips said. "He probably loses 10 pounds because he sweats so much, he's on the ground so much. He's drenched before he goes."
