Analysis: Rico Butler has great feet and decent size and strength for a RB.  Has natural ability to change directions and has a good burst of speed in the open field.  Also has good hands and good ball protection but needs to work on pass blocking, and route running to be a great Division I RB.  Rico has a lot of heart and has great leadership qualities with his team.  With the right coaches and offensive scheme this kid could be a star by his Sophomore year. Although he may not have any offers yet, there is a lot of interest in this 2011 talent.
