Nevada junior running back James Butler

Nevada running back James Butler announced via his Twitter on Tuesday that he will transfer from the University of Nevada to the University of Iowa for his final season of college football.

News 4 reached out to the former News 4 intern who said he will be eligible to play immediately this fall.

The senior was named to the preseason All-Mountain West first team by Athlon Sports and is coming off of back-to-back 1,000-yard rushing seasons.

He leaves Nevada eighth on the all-time rushing list. He was the only Nevada player last season to earn conference player of the week honors.
