Under The Radar Recruit: Quarterback Jaylen Pettway

Jaylen Pettway at Ed White

High School: Ed White (Jax)

Position: Quarterback

Size: 6’3 225 LBS

Player Summary:

The 6’3 225 lbs quarterback out of Jacksonville, Florida’s Ed White high school is a diamond in the rough. Transferring in from Terry Parker high school; also, in Jacksonville. Pettway offers a unique blend of size, pocket presence, and accuracy. When evaluating Pettway, we noticed that he could throw an accurate pass while being off platform. He’s able to throw while the pocket is collapsing. This trait shows a willingness to make the throw regardless of the situation.

Again, at 6’3 his height puts him in the sweet spot for a quarterback. He’s tall enough to see over the line to make solid decisions. He’s strong enough to get the ball down field, but accurate enough to have touch on the ball. He can fit the ball into tight windows even on the run.

Ultimately, the Ed White offense has one of the better quarterbacks in the area. Pettway’s talent plus the skilled receivers the Ed White offense has, this could be a special season. Pettway has a few offers on the table, but more should be on the way as the year goes on.

Again, Pettway is 6’3 and accurate at each level of the field.
