Default Brice Butler/Michael Floyd Youtube Video

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bOGgtGNqFVE

Short vid compares USC Commit Brice Butler to ND commit Michael Floyd.

After watching this, it seems not only that Butler is a considerably better prospect than Floyd, but that Floyd is SLOW AS HELL.


P.S. The video says Butler runs a 4.37, which I don't necessarily think is true, but he's definitely fast enough and has good enough hands to start at USC by at least his sophomore year.

Devier Posey > either of them.

Although I really like Butler. Floyd reminds me of Mike Williams a bit. He has those long loping strides, but has great size.

Everybody that is 6'4 is compared to Mike Wililams nowadays. But the truth is, Williams was a special breed of physical. He would absolutely run cornerbacks over.

USC has a 6'4 230 WR in David Ausberry. He too was being compared to Mike Williams in the summer workouts. But he really can't break tackles and box out defenders like Williams could. Most 6'4 230 receivers can't either. The jury is definitely still out on Floyd.

Wow shockingly Axl picks the ND commit over the SC commit... FWIW, I like Floyd a lot, he just needs some wheels.

By the way Axl, was it you that said Duval Kamara would be a better WR than Arrelious Benn?

Even if Floyd wasn't going to ND I would have picked him, I've been following his career since he was a sophomore and like what he has to offer. If I thought Butler was better or someone said a certain recruit was better then a ND recruit and I agreed I wouldn't even respond.

Yes, I said I think Kamara will end up being a better WR then Benn. It was after a Illinois fan here said Benn was the best freshmen receiver in the nation even before the season started. I still believe it.

But would your opinion be the same if Butler wasn't going to SC? And Benn is the best True Freshman receiver in the country.

yeah, im pretty sure he's going to play wideout. I know he plays on D too down at servite but I think wideout is his natural position.

If pete wanted to he could use him as a multi-purpose but that's not pete's style and joe's got that down.

if anyone knows more about him you can correct me if I'm wrong.

Yes, I said it before when everyone thought he was thought to be a FSU commit. Floyd was the receiver I wanted most this year.

I guess we'll see, I like what I see from Kamara and stand by my opinion.

You would take Floyd ahead of Julio Jones?????????? Surprising...

Just a quick Benn/Kamara comparison...

Kamara: 32 catches, 357 yards, 11.2 ypc, 4 TD
Benn: 49 catches, 596 yards, 12.2 ypc, 1 TD, 32 rushes, 158 yards, 4.9 ypc (Big 10 Freshman of the Year)

I'd say round 1 goes to Benn, but it should be a good battle.

I never seen Jones, ND was never in it for him so I never really paid attention to him. Floyd may not be the highest rated WR but the one I want cause hes the whole package IMO and fits ND well.

4 TD's to 1 TD, thats the most important of all the stats IMO.

Considering Kamara got his TDs against Navy (2), Duke and Purdue, I wouldn't put too much stock into that

Also consider what Kamara has to work with around him.


Comparing player's ability this early in their career is useless.

Seriously. The supporting cast he had this year was pitiful. I still like Benn more, though.


Can someone at all tell me how Butler looked considerably better in that clip? He certainly looked faster, but faster does not equal better. Floyd was able to use his quickness and size to win one-on-one battles, much like Butler used his speed.

Butler is faster and has better hands, arguably the two most important characteristics of a WR. I'd argue that Butler runs better routes also. Basically, he's more polished than Floyd, and the only thing Floyd has on him is size/strength.

And yet, Scout and Rivals rank Floyd ahead of Butler.

Any argument you try to make on hands and route running ability would imply you've seen every game that both Butler and Floyd have made over their entire HS career to make that type of comparison.

I absolutely do not see anything in that video to show that Butler has better hands or runs better routes. In the video, Butler runs faster, but Floyd is able to make huge plays because of his shiftiness.

http://rivals100.rivals.com/content.asp?cid=692630

Brice Butler is a unanimous selection among Mike Farrell, JC Shurburtt, and Jeremy Crabtree as having the best hands.

Jeremy Crabtree: "Butler is also an excellent route runner."

I may not have seen EVERY video of Brice Butler, but the Rivals experts have seen a bunch of film on him.

And Floyd may have looked good on that film, but how do you know it wasn't because of the weak competition he was playing against?

Butler is widely regarded by recruiting experts as having some of the best hands in this year's class. And you can't argue that his 40 times are faster than Floyd's 40 times. Like I said, speed and hands.
