USU Receivers Face Legal Problems

Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sp

Two USU receivers were arrested this week and charged in separate cases.

Utah State suffered two heavy blows this week as receivers Ronald Butler and JoJo Natson were separately arrested and charged with illegal activities. For Butler, the arrest came on a traffic stop which then lead to a DUI charge. For Natson, the charge was theft; he supposedly diverted university money intended for another athlete to his own funds.

The team has not made any statements as of yet, waiting, I believe, to see whether they are found guilty of the accusations. This could potentially signal a devastating blow to the Aggies' air attack for the coming season, should they miss playing time this year.

The Aggies lost plenty of wide receiver talent and Butler and Natson were to be counted on to be key contributors.

Natson is a very versatile player who returns kicks and takes part in the running game for Utah State at times. In 2013 he caught 58 balls for 385 yards and had a combined seven touchdowns. Butler caught 24 receptions for 346 yards and three touchdowns.

If either miss any significant of time it will hurt Utah State's chances for this upcoming season.
