As this 6’3” 225 lbs. recruit prepares for his Senior season he has a solid list of schools to choose from. The Class of 2021 Tight End has a good mix of schools that could provide a multitude of opportunities at the next level. With programs in major conferences like Rutgers in the Big 10 or D1 schools in lesser publicized conferences like Ohio. Butler’s choices are diverse and give him much to consider.

            In terms of the skillset he would bring to whichever school he picks it is a valuable set of attributes. Butler showcases on film the ability to be a tremendous blocker at the tight end position. Using his good hand placement and strength to either stalemate or overpower his opponents to seal lanes in the running game. This blocking ability makes him an essential part of St. John’s rush offense and will be a valuable skill for a college program to use at the next level. Butler contributes as receiver in St. John’s offense, displaying reliable hands as an option. He is a solid safety valve for QB’s running solid routes. While doing most of his damage in the short to intermediate passing game. He does display some ability to make plays after the catch but is useful as a safety valve option in an offense.

            Butler also shows off versatility in his game as he contributes some on defense and special teams. He plays some at linebacker on St. John’s defense and makes some plays being a very good tackler. While this position may not be one, he plays down the line he can contribute in spurts if needed because of his physicality. On special team he plays on both coverage units and is very reliable on these units. This allows him to be utilized in a variety of situations making him a piece that can be invaluable to a football team.            

Butler with these physical skills and abilities is a recruit who has much promise as an immediate contributor at the college level. Now it depends on how this young tight end narrows his schools list down going forward. Then ultimately decides on where he will play, leaving these schools all hoping they will acquire his services.
