Mayden Talks TCU Offer

Sachse, TX 2016 cornerback Jared Mayden is adding offers on a daily basis.

chse, TX 2016 cornerback Jared Mayden has seen his recruitment take off in the last week, adding four schools to his ever-growing offer list.

Mayden had a breakout season as a sophomore, collecting 25 tackles, two interception, four forced fumbles and four pass break ups.

The 6-foot, 190-pounder added offers from Wisconsin, San Diego State, Oklahoma and TCU last week. He already held offers from Baylor, Texas A&M and Texas.

Mayden made visits to TCU (Friday) and Oklahoma (Saturday) this past weekend. Accompanying him on his trip to Ft. Worth were his mom and little brother.

"I thought it was great," he said. "The coaches stayed there on a Friday to meet my mom and my little brother. And on the tour they had my jersey number out."

Mayden said the highlight of his visit was the one-on-one time he got with new cornerbacks coach Kenny Perry. According to Mayden, the two hit it off immediately.

"When me and Coach Perry were sharing knowledge and got up and did a little mini one-on-one session in his office," Mayden recalled the favorite part of his visit.

The rising corner also had a chance to talk with Head Coach Gary Patterson. In fact, Mayden was made aware of the TCU offer thanks to his mom seeing her son's name in Patterson's office.

Mayden enjoyed meeting the defensive minded coach.

"My name was the only name on the board for 2016 cornerbacks. And my mom asked what does that mean and he said it means I have an offer," Mayden said. "He seems like a legit man and coach. He's a defensive minded coach. He also helps coach secondary so that's definitely a plus."

Although he doesn't know a lot about TCU's program, he does have a little familiarity with the team since his cousin played for the Frogs the last two seasons.

"I knew a little bit because my cousin Keivon Gamble went there so I knew a little bit but not a lot," Mayden said.

Mayden has plans to get back to TCU's campus this summer so he can participate in a Frogs' one day camp.

"I'm going to be back for camp in the summer to work with the coach's hand on," he finished.
