I am not doing a lot of individual football prospect stories this year, I just do not seem to have the time, but when I come across a Montana prospect I most likely will. That is the case with Helena high school running back prospect Nelo Butler. Recently Rivals.com did a recruiting story on Butler that brought him to my attention.
Butler a 5-9 200 pound running back prospect was receiving a broad range of recruiting interest from numerous schools including both the Bobcats and the grizzly football programs before he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during a Helena High’s July camp.
Last season Butler rushed for 1,047 yards last season averaging 95.2 yards a game. He also averaged about 10 yards a game in receiving yards.
