There are 88 days until the Red Raiders kick off the 2021 season. Every day, we will be highlighting a different Red Raider based on their jersey numbers. Today, we will be taking a look at tight-end Jed Castles.
A 6’7” Tight End from Rider High School in Wichita Falls. Castles is one of 12 members of the Texas Tech 2021 recruiting class. He was also one of the five early enrollees to go through spring practice with the Red Raiders. Castles joins a talented tight-end group, and the competition for snaps will be worth following. This especially because the last time Sonny Cumbie was dialing up the offense on the West Texas plains, the tight end position was a focal point of the offense. Will Coach Cumbie find his next Jace Amaro in Jed Castles?
Castles was a 2-sport athlete in high school, and while he had to pass on his Senior basketball season, Castles recently displayed that he has plenty of bounce to bring to the football field.
