On the field Redding looks to have the size, strength, speed combination needed to play for a BCS team. It would seem however, that Redding would likely redshirt his freshman year to develop his skills, allowing him to become a major contributor down the road. While he lacks that next level speed, his lower body stability will allow him to break tackles and be tough to bring down. He is a patient blocker who allows his offensive line to work with him. Redding is a between the tackle power running back. He has good upper and lower body balance which will allow him to move the pile and be a durable back, capable of playing in the Big Ten. He needs to learn how to run routes, and be a factor coming out of the backfield in the passing game.
