Player Profile - Jalen Mayden

Recruiting Notes: 

Mayden discusses schools like Mississippi State, Louisville, Houston, North Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee and more.

Evaluation Notes: 

Mayden -- a left-handed thrower -- is a quarterback who does not make a lot of mistakes with the football, despite the fact that he played at a high level of competition at a young age. His two older brothers are both D1 recruits and he got a head start on getting ready for the next level training wise, but he has already outgrown both of his older brothers. He grew and matured within his offense in 2015, using a wealth of weapons underneath as he was getting comfortable within the offensive scheme and he started working the field more vertically with each week. He can pull the ball down and run as his stats suggest, but he is more of pass first quarterback who will make his reads and progressions in the pocket. In 2016, he showed maturity and accuracy breaking in a new set of receivers and and new offensive line his team didn't lose a game in the regular season and he was very responsible with the football.
