Commitment – Undecided

Name/Location/Date/Time of film for evaluation – Junior Szn Highlights – Hudl – 11/12/2020 – 7m 05sec

Physical Attributes –  Jaden is tall, long levered, with a lean body.  A very twitchy, athletic player.  SHows good balance and body control, can open hips, good initial burst and acceleration and good play speed, shows long speed on film but do not think he is an elite sprinter.  He is a  fluid athlete that can do a lot of things on both sides of the ball.  He will get bigger, stronger and faster in due time as he matures. 

Position Specific Skills – For the sake of opinion I will evaluate skills at the Safety position.  Jaden shows good feet, short area quickness and good balance and body control.  He can open and flip hips well for a long levered athlete.  The catch up speed is there vs that competition but can’t gauge his long speed.  He is a long strider.  Jaden is also a very instinctive, high effort player that is productive on both sides of the ball.  He can tackle although cut tackles at times and shows willingness to be physical.    

Overall –  Jaden is a bit unique in that he is so tall and long and is very fluid.  He also can play multiple positions.  He is a two way productive football player that is very instinctive.  As he grows into his body he will get better as a player.  I see him as a Safety first at the next level with a possibility of him being a possession WR.  Jaden is a really good football player that has a chance to be a multi year starter.  Must work on his long speed.
