Devin Butler is a four-star recruit from Gonzaga High School in Washington D.C.
Butler will play cornerback at Notre Dame, though he saw time as a receiver in high school. Butler is an instinctive player with great closing speed and lots of range.
He is speedy and can track down receivers or runners across the field. Butler provides solid, smart and aware coverage while displaying the ability to make open field tackles against the run.
He reads quarterbacks well and gets a jump on the ball, and once he gets a jump on the ball, he has the ability to elevate and the hands to bring the ball in.
