Oregon is the lone West Coast program left standing in the recruitment of one of the very best tight ends in the 2024 class.

Jaden Reddell, a top-60 recruit from Peculiar (Mo.) Raymore-Peculiar, revealed his Top 5 on Wednesday. He has the Ducks alongside Notre Dame, Tennessee, Georgia, and Alabama.

With official visits scheduled to each of his three SEC finalists, most expect Reddell to wind up in the Southeastern Conference. Notre Dame is making a strong push as well, with the team’s offensive coordinator reportedly in Missouri this week to visit. The Ducks have significant competition to try and pry Reddell away.

A 6-foot-4, 233-pound playmaker, Reddell ranks as the No. 4 tight end in the country and the No. 58 overall recruit in the Class of 2024 by the industry-generated 247 Composite. He’s also the No. 3 prospect from the state of Missouri.

Reddell looks like a hybrid tight end at the collegiate level. In-line work could be in play, but he has done very little of that to this point in his high school career. Instead, Raymore-Peculiar has let him do what he does best: make plays in the pass game.

Reddell has mostly been a receiver in high school. His ability to split out or line up in the slot could prove a major advantage as he continues to fill out his frame. As a sophomore, Reddell produced 21 receptions for 549 yards and 7 touchdowns. As a junior, he made a leap, recording 49 catches for 1,002 yards and 12 touchdowns.

The Ducks are working on a top-10 class this cycle, with 11 known verbal pledges already, including two from tight ends and two more from 4-star receivers.
