He is a prospect who has been elite in camp showings pulling down accolades and awards, showing great coverage abilities, instincts, and the savvy that it takes to play on the island on the next level. Throughout the course of the spring he has also added some nice muscle to his frame and showed while playing safety that he is not a liability against the run and can make the tough tackles when called on. A well-rounded skill set as a prospect.

Butler was a first-team all-district selection at cornerback as a junior, when he recorded 23 tackles, one fumble recovery, and five pass breakups for West Mesquite. Butler earned Defensive Back MVP honors at the Jan. 2014 Next Level Athlete Showcase in Dallas.
