One of the best recruits in the country, Jaden Reddellended his recruiting early today announcing his intention to play for Georgia in college via twitter post. The commitment to Georgia – while not surprising – came sooner than expected as Reddell was due to make official visits to both Alabama And Tennessee before announcing his decision.
Reddell is the latest addition to a Georgian recruiting class that was already ranked among the best in the country before his appointment. He joins his four-star compatriot Colton Heinrich as Smart Kirbysecond tight commitment of the class of 2024.
WHAT THE BULLDOGS GET…
Reddell’s physical and athletic gifts make him one of the best tight ends in the 2024 class and it could be argued that he is the best overall when it comes to upside as a receiving threat. The Missouri native has seen incredible growth between his second season and his junior season, which has taken him from a regional rookie to one of the most sought-after players in the country, regardless of position – apparently from day to day.
Although Reddell is coveted for his abilities as a receiver and is more of a hybrid at that position right now, he has the frame to become a true line tight end once fully developed in a college weight program. That physical advantage combined with his will as a blocker makes Reddell the complete package, and even as talented as he is today, he only scratches the surface of the player he will eventually be in Georgia and beyond. of the.
WHY THIS IS GREAT FOR GEORGIA…
Georgia loves its little bits and any time you can get out of the region to grab one of the best in the country, that’s a win in itself. This commitment gives Georgia a firm grip on the nation’s top class in 2024 and could be further proof that the “Dylan Raiola The effect” is real.
The addition of Reddell and Heinrich to an already loaded Georgia tight end room should leave the position in good hands for years to come. It’s also another sign that Georgia is fast becoming the modern-day “Tight End U” with a Bulldog tight end selected in five consecutive NFL Drafts.
This was a masterful recruiting by Kirby Smart and his staff, as they were able to convince Reddell to stop recruiting ahead of scheduled official visits to Alabama and Tennessee. While Georgia was seen by many as the leader in his commitment, the longer this recruitment went on, the more contested he would become. Alabama and Tennessee are unlikely to go away quietly, but I expect Reddell to honor his promise and sign with Georgia in December.
