Darius Butler Can Get Much, Much Higher Than You
With the NFL combine this weekend, 21-year-old future millionaires are gathering in Indianapolis, doing everything they can to get the right kind of attention. Darius Butler, a cornerback from Coral Springs who attended UConn, is impressing scouts with his superhuman ability to get high. Jump that is.
Not only does Butler say he can run the 40-yard dash in under 4.3 seconds; in interviews, he's telling people his vertical jump is "about 44, maybe 45" inches.
He's a confident young man.
It might have seemed like hype if not for this video evidence surfacing on YouTube. Here the five-foot-ten Butler gets high on the ten-foot rim at UConn.
