Here is his ESPN Recruiting Profile

This is one of those players you just can%u2019t help but like because he is so savvy and productive. If Badet were faster he would be much more highly coveted. With that being said, he is ultra-quick, very sudden and an ideal candidate in the slot. Is lean and slight with adequate height%u2014very wiry. Drives defenders off the line with excellent initial quickness and does a nice job of getting DB’s turned around. He has terrific foot quickness and change-of-direction skills. He can stick his foot in the ground and cut laterally with little-to-no wasted motion, which should make him a dangerous route-runner in time. Changes directions smoothly, explodes out of cuts and can run crisp short-to-intermediate routes. Reads defenses well and locates seams working against zone coverage. Is very aware of coverage and spacing. Is very effective of quick screens/bubbles and quick hitters that allow for him to transition quickly in the open field. Shows quick, soft hands. Has excellent body control and can make the tough catch in traffic. Times jumps well to compete for jump balls even though he has marginal size. Isn’t afraid to go over the middle and flashes the ability to hold onto the ball after taking a big hit. However, it is very clear that Badet is quicker than fast. He is explosive with short area burst, but lacks a second gear in the open field and would struggle to win many footraces vs elite personnel in our opinion. This is a competitive and smart player with many redeeming qualities. We like his upside and his strengths can be accentuated when in the slot.

And his Highlight-Reel (Make sure you watch his catch at the 0:20 mark)
