Jaden was primarily used as a boundary receiver during his sophomore and junior seasons at Raymore-Peculiar, but he was often lined up in the slot and other WR positions in his high school spread offense. Whether it be by scheme or by preference, Jaden did not take any snaps at inline TE in his Hudl clips. Jaden possesses a long frame and impressive straight-line speed that allow him to overpower the corners or safeties that he is lined up on. In Georgia’s offense, expect Jaden to be used all over the field with less focus on him lining up with his hand in the dirt.
Raymore-Peculiar’s offense uses Jaden a considerable amount in deep post routes, go routes, and redzone jump balls. He has capable hands and impressive ball tracking ability that make him a true homerun threat. This will be another nightmare in terms of mismatches for opposing defensive coordinators. Simply put, Jaden is too big for corners/safeties and too fast for linebackers.
Without directly comparing Reddell to Brock Bowers, Jaden will be continuing the trend of having extremely versatile TE’s in Georgia’s modern offenses. Being positioned at the end of the line in an under-center power set will be a major change from what he has done at the high school level. I am not saying that it won’t happen, but he will likely have to add some weight and blocking skill to be able to push SEC edge defenders off the line. Jaden is also not a fully developed route runner and could struggle with separation when playing against defenders with similar speed.
Aside from those minor adjustments, Jaden is another great pickup by TE Coach Todd Hartley. He will have a remarkably high ceiling at Georgia and has all the tools to be a dynamic playmaker at the next level.

Both players have particularly good speed for their size and big play potential. Another note, Orson Charles played under Mike Bobo at Georgia from 2009 to 2011.
