Kaden Smith has fantastic upside. He has a large frame, hands/concentration and the ability to block. Smith is very versatile and can beat the defense in a number of ways. Linebackers can’t stay with him and defensive backs aren’t big enough to challenge him for the ball.
Smith can line up all over the field from traditional tight end to wide receiver or h-back. He was led the team in catches (40), yards (640) and touchdowns (8) after his sophomore season.
”I am very versatile,” Smith said. “I can block, beat safties with my size and beat the linebackers off the line.”
Smith had a strong junior season with 35 catches for 540 yards. Texas is in need of a pass catching tight end and Smith has made several trips to Austin.
”Charlie Strong is bringing Texas in a great direction,” Smith said.
