Reminds Us Of

Jaylen Waddle Miami Dolphins

A dynamic slot receiver with legit foot speed that’s a big play waiting to happen. Cut his teeth at the New Orleans heavyweight that is Edna Karr finishing his prep career off with over 6,000 yards of total offense to his credit and 20 return touchdowns. Made a splash as a senior when he housed three kickoffs against rival John Curtis in a game that was televised by ESPN2. Under 5-foot-10, but at times plays bigger than his size would suggest. Muscular build allows him to power his way through most would-be tacklers in the open field, at least on Friday nights. Quick feet might be the best aspect of his game at this stage as he can shake and lose defensive backs with sharp cuts. Will need to keep progressing as a route runner, but already seems to have mastered how to sell a double-move. Should provide immediate special teams value for a College Football Contender given how elusive he is with the ball in his hands. Seems destined to eventually emerge as an impact inside receiver on Saturdays. Ability to create in space on jet sweeps/quick screens could help him avoid a redshirt. Track times (10.77 in the 100-meter dash) will have him on the radar of NFL scouts one day.

H.S. Athletic Background

Two-sport athlete in football and track. Ran a 10.77 100 and a 7.03 indoor 60 as a junior. Broke the 11.00-second 100-meter threshold at least five times, including a 10.97 that placed sixth at the May 2021 Louisiana 4A state track and field finals. Ran an 11.23 100 and a 22.77 200 as a sophomore.

2021: Nola.com All-Metro Offensive Player of The Year (large enrollment). Turned heads in Eden Karr’s season opener when he returned three kickoffs for touchdowns against nearby John Curtis. Ended up finishing the season with five special teams scores to his credit. Also caught 74 passes for 926 yards and 14 touchdowns. A big reason why the Cougars went 11-1 and made it to Lousiana’s 4A semifinals.

2020: Helped Edna Karr to a Louisiana 4A state runner-up finish as a junior.

2019: As a sophomore, helped Edna Karr to its fourth consecutive Louisiana 4A state championship.
