The 2019 football season will be one to remember for rising sophomore receiver, Jaden Greathouse, as he played a large role in helping the Westlake Chaparrals win their first state championship since 1996. In addition, Greathouse has enjoyed a fast start to 2020 as he has received offers from Baylor, Oklahoma and Texas.
Greathouse was tabbed as a MaxPreps Freshman All-American and was named the District 25-6A Co-Offensive Newcomer of the Year.
Freshman Season Statistics (Via MaxPreps):
Receiving: 47 receptions, 715 receiving yards and 10 receiving TDs.
Greathouse has great hands and excels at using his body as leverage to make difficult catches in traffic. In addition, Jaden was exceptional at moving the chains during his freshman season as he averaged just over 15 yards per reception.
Greathouse already possesses the ideal size for a receiver as he entered his freshman season standing at 6’3″ and weighing 200 pounds. In addition to football, Jaden also showcases his combination of size and speed on the Chaparrals basketball team.
Needs to Prove:
In my opinion, Jaden was a member of the most dominant receiving core in the state of Texas for the 2019 season. However, three of Westlake’s top four receivers have since graduated, with the other receiver being Greathouse himself. For the 2020 season, I would like to see Greathouse prove to the state of Texas that he can be a one-man wrecking crew.
What I See:
Greathouse has been a receiver that is just fun to watch. He will nickel and dime his opponent with 10 yard out routes before burning you deep on a fly route. Jaden is in the Longhorns backyard already, as he attends a high school that is less than 10 miles away from the University of Texas, however it will be up to head coach Tom Herman and his staff to reel him in. Greathouse has shown that he has a lot of potential, however he still has three seasons to prove his dominance before reaching the next level.
