Bobcat & Griz FB Recruit: Nelo Butler

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.

I have heard that both the Montana State Bobcat and Montana Grizzly football staffs are recruiting Zach Keiser of Coeur D’Alene high school in Idaho. Keiser is 5–9, 185 pound athlete who primarily being recruited as a running back prospect, but is also getting some looks at the line backer spot.

Griz FB recruiting: A couple quick ones

I am breaking from my normal pattern of doing individual post for each Football recruit to do a two for one post. I do not have enough information on either to really write enough about each in a post so I am going to combine.

The athletes that appear to be getting recruiting interest from the Montana Grizzly football staff are Dawson Graham from California and Shaq Jenkins from California.

Dawson Graham is a 6-3 260 pound Offensive guard prospect from Foothill high school in Pleasanton, California. I do not have a lot of information on Graham, and usually it is tough to find any info on O line men this early in the recruiting season, but an interesting note is that he is also a pretty good pitcher on the Foothills baseball team. I do not know if he is good enough to get a collegiate interest but he is good enough to get some accolades.

He currently is getting recruiting interest from Boise State, Cal Poly, Montana, Oregon State, and UC Davis, but I do not believe he has any offers as of yet.

Bobcat & Griz FB recruit: Troy Castle


I have heard that both the Bobcat and Griz football staffs are recruiting Troy Castle from Gig Harbor high school in the Gig Harbor, Washington. Castle is a 5-11 wide receiver and defensive back prospect, but is mainly being recruited by the two schools as a wide receiver.

I do not have any of Castles stats for 2009 but he was the only player last season named first team All Narrows League on both offence (slot back) and defense (defensive back). Previous to 2009 he played quarterback and lead Gig Harbor to a Narrows League Championship, as a sophomore.

Castle is an all around athlete and also plays varsity basketball and runs sprints for the track team.

Castle has been timed at 4.6 in the 40 yard dash, and has runs a 11.75 in the 100 meters, 23.4 in the 200 meters, and 51.8 in the 400 meters.

Bobcat & Griz FB recruit: Tyler Rutt

I have heard that both the Bobcat and grizzly football coaching staffs are recruiting Tyler Rutt from Hamilton high school in Chandler Arizona. Rutt is a 6-0 195 pound outside linebacker but because of his height may end up playing the safety position in college. Hamilton high school went undefeated in 2009 and won it’s second strait 5A championship.

For his junior year Rutt had 48 unassisted tackles, 64 assisted tackles 5 sacks, 6 interceptions and 4 fumble recoveries. For his efforts Rutt earned second-team all-region and honorable mention all-state honors.

Rutt runs a 4.67 40 yard dash and has a 28 inch vertical. In the weight room he has a maximum 265 pound bench and a maximum 350 pound squat

Here is an evaluation from last fall.

Griz FB Recruit: Joseph Farmer

The Griz football coaching staff is recruiting Joe Farmer of Mount Si high school in North Bend, Washington. Farmer is a 6-5, 230 pound Tight End prospect , but also plays on the defensive line for Mount Si.

Farmer was named Second team all KingCo 3A/2A this past season and recently was named the Tight End MVP of the Rivals.com Ultimate 100 camp (which features athletes from most of the west coast states). I do not have his complete stats but I believe through his first 9 games of the season he had managed 170 yards on11 receptions and 4 touch downs.

Farmer is a multi-sport athlete for Mount Si having played on the varsity basketball team as well as being Mount Si top javelin , long jump and triple jump player on the track team.

Scott Eklund of Dawgman.com had the following evaluation of Farmer at the end of this past season.
