Taj Butts Scouting Report
Taj Butts is a Sports Illustrated All American candidate and unanimous top ten player in Missouri. Excellent quickness and superb directional changing speed that's good at making people miss. He reads his blocks well and can stop on a dime as shown in the video below at the 00:33 mark where he patiently waits for the hole to open before making the opposing safeties look ridiculous. Possesses a couple nasty moves that make him hard to track down in the open field. Helped lead De Smet to a Missouri Class 6 state championship in '19-20 and is currently looking to repeat as they're one win away from the state championship game again. (DT Yates)
