Jaden Payoute
Wide Receiver
LC Bird High School, Chesterfield, VA
6-1, 189

247: 4-star, No. 106 recruit nationally, No. 4 ATH, No. 2 player in VA
Rivals: 4-star, No. 237 recruit nationally, No. 38 WR, No. 6 player in VA
ESPN: 4-star, No. 196 recruit nationally, No. 18 ATH, No. 5 player in VA

Other Power 5 offers: 4 (Note: It was reported that a few schools such as Ohio State and Penn State offered Payoute late in the process, and I believe it.  However, those offers aren’t reported on any of the recruiting sites, so I can’t include them in my number in his scouting report, or any P5 offer comparison article.)

How does one do a scouting report on a wide receiver who doesn’t actually play wide receiver?  Today we’re going to talk about Jaden Payoute, who has the highest ceiling of Tech’s 2019 wide receiver recruits.  However, he was a quarterback in high school, and at this stage he likely isn’t as advanced in the intricacies of playing wide receiver as guys like Jacoby Pinckney and Elijah Bowick, other 2019 signees.

That doesn’t
