Are you entertained yet? The ‘Noles have picked up their fifth commit of the last six days on Saturday afternoon. FSU’s prospect camp continues to produce commits, as all five commits attended this past weekend’s Mike Martin Jr. camp. Spencer Butt made it eight commits for the 2023 class and the fifth commit of the week. Butt also makes it five 2023 commits in the top-100 of perfect game’s national rankings.

I am ecstatic to say I have officially committed to Florida State University. First and foremost, I’d like to thank the lord for giving me the opportunity to fulfill my dreams of playing division 1 college baseball. Secondly, I’d like to thank my parents @teh818 and @ironmanbutt for supporting me throughout this process. Lastly I would like to thank @elitesquadbaseball and specifically @smorrison1227 for doing all they can to put me in the right position to succeed. I am now looking forward to bring @nolebaseball their first national championship. Go seminoles!❤️
Spencer is a SS and RHP out of American Heritage HS and Davie, FL. The Florida-native recently played for team USA on the 15U national team, his second stint with team USA after playing on the 12U team in 2017. The SS is 5’9 and 140 pounds while hitting from both sides of the plate. Butt is still just 14 years old. The Davie-native is the 79th rated player in the nation and number 18 in Florida.
Despite his small frame, Butt has been up to 89 MPH off the mound and sits 85-86 MPH. With four years of high school ball and lots of time to grow, the velocity has a very high ceiling. In the field, Spencer is a dynamic player up the middle. The SS has an advanced approach from both sides of the plate and consistenly puts the bat on the ball. Spencer projects as a top of the order bat down the road and has the arm strength to stick at SS down the road. Power will come in the bat as he grows and puts on muscle.
Butt was impressed with Mike Martin Jr.’s prospect camp. The switch-hitter said, “The camp experience was phenomenal. Getting to see all the facilities and especially meeting the staff was a success in my eyes.” The thing that blew Spencer away was the coaching staff and their intent to win a National Championship. He said, “The coaching staff definitely sealed the deal for me. They are a hard-nosed staff that is dead set on winning a national champion for the program. I would 150% go to war for this staff.”
FSU now has six of the top 33 players from Florida in the 2023 class. This staff continues to prove they’re going to recruit at the highest level.
