Jumper Has Skills the New Washington Staff Might Not Know

Caden Jumper is a University of Washington tight end, projected as a bruiser when blocking the edge and as a capable receiver when releasing into the flat.

Departed coach Jimmy Lake compared Jumper favorably to former Husky Will Dissly, now with the Seahawks. Making that connection was almost an automatic.

“This is one of the tougher guys I’ve seen on film,” Lake said when discussing Jumper’s signing in 2020. “What you guys should think about is Will Dissly. That’s Caden Jumper.”

While all of that sounds well and good, there’s a new UW coaching staff in charge in Montlake, one deemed much more innovative offensively, and Jumper could present it with an interesting option.

Less than a month until spring practice, we’re offering intel and observations gathered on the UW football personnel in a series of stories on every scholarship player from No. 0 to 99. We’ll review each Husky’s previous starting experience, if applicable, and determine what comes next under new coach Kalen DeBoer.
