Anderson-Butts made his verbal commitment to James Franklin’s 2018 recruiting class on July 25, but didn’t join his high school teammate Micah Parsons by officially signing on the early signing day in December. It’s been reported this was because of “school issues.”
Iowa Western Community College's Twitter account says that WR/DB Shaquon Anderson-Butts, who had verbally committed to Penn State, has submitted a letter of intent to play with the Reivers. School-related issues had prevented him from signing with the Nittany Lions in December.

He is currently listed as an “Athlete” on 247 Sports, but all signs point to him taking on a role as a defensive back or wide receiver when he gets to IWCC.
Anderson-Butts certainly played a role in getting his five-star teammate to come to Happy Valley, and he was quite sure that Parsons would be joining James Franklin and Co. He didn’t join his teammate at Penn State, though.
