A standout performer on both sides of the ball, 6-3, 210-pound junior linebacker/wide receiver Kris Frost helped Butler (Matthews, N.C.) to a Class 4AA state championship last season. Primarily an offensive player before 2009, Frost did very well with his opportunity on defense
“Playing on both sides of the ball, pushing the offense and defense is something I take pride in,” said Frost. “It was kind of a change to play defense, but it turned out to be a pretty good change. I got some catches at wide receiver and did a few things on the other side of the ball. As the season progressed, I did more and more. I really helped the team on both sides of the ball.”
Frost is getting some looks as a defensive end and some looks as a strong safety (some schools, like Michigan, have said receiver as well) on the next level, but at Butler he mans the strong-side outside linebacker spot in the Bulldogs 3-4 set.

“As a leader of the Butler High School football team, I do worry about my teammates and us as a whole and how much we’re progressing. We do not plan on being second best this year or just being pretty good. We want to be better than last year,” Frost said. “We feel like we can accomplish it.”
Recruiting has also gone well for Frost, who has enjoyed the unofficial visits he has made so far.
“I have about 11, maybe 12 offers,” Frost said. “I’m really considering every school. I never want to bypass a school or leave it out to dry. You never know what’s going to happen in the long run. I’m going to give every school my upmost attention and go on as many visits as I can. And it’s fun to do so.
“I’ve gone to Chapel Hill for a game during the season. I went to a junior day at Chapel Hill and one other visit. I’ve been on a visit to Virginia Tech. I went to two games...
