Alabama’s Jaylen Waddle Teams Up with GSE Worldwide

GSE Worldwide today announced that it has signed Alabama receiver Jaylen Waddle for representation in all of the former Crimson Tide receiver’s marketing and off-field partnerships heading into the 2021 NFL Draft. Waddle, along with receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown and running back Kylin Hill, combine to form GSE’s 2021 NFL rookie prospects.  They will join notable current NFL clients in the GSE family including Alvin Kamara, Jarvis Landry, Diontae Johnson and Melvin Gordon, and NFL Legends Bo Jackson, Ray Lewis, Steve Young and Warren Sapp.

Over his three-year standout career with the Crimson Tide, Jaylen Waddle finished with 106 receptions totalling 1,999 yards (18.9 YPC, 2nd all-time at Alabama) and 17 touchdowns. The game-breaking receiver also owns three of the top-five longest scoring receptions in Alabama history, was named SEC Freshman of the Year, SEC Special Teams Player of the Year and First-Team All-SEC as a sophomore, and Second-Team All-SEC as a Junior in an injury-shortened season. Waddle wrapped up his collegiate career with a gutty performance in the 2021 College Playoff National Championship game as a junior, coming back from a potential season-ending ankle injury.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Jaylen to the GSE family and for the opportunity to work with him and his family as he takes this next step toward a professional career,” said Russ Spielman of GSE Worldwide.  “Jaylen’s future is incredibly bright, no matter which NFL team is fortunate enough to draft him.”

“There’s a lot that goes into turning pro and, like in life, it’s important to surround yourself with the right people – I’m confident with GSE as my partner,” added Jaylen Waddle. “We share the same passion and drive for success on and off the field, and I’m excited to be working with them.”

Jaylen is a proud Houston, TX native and graduate of Episcopal High School in Bellaire, TX, where as a senior he played in the U.S. Army All-American Game. He ended his high school career ranked as one of the top-10 players in Texas in the 2018 recruiting class before joining Alabama, where he enjoyed a standout college career.
