Mayden Has TCU in Top 3

The TCU Horned Frogs have made the final three for Sachse CB, Jared Mayden. Ohio State and Oregon are the other two finalists and a decision should be made by the end of the summer.

Here are a few quotes from discussion with Jared Mayden Sunday afternoon. Mayden recently named a final three of TCU, Oregon and Ohio State. Mayden is ranked as the #3 CB in the nation by Scout.com and the #40 prospect over all. Here's what he had to say.

On his experience today -

"It was good but I didn't stay the whole time because I had to go to a Team USA event and watch my little brother play. While I was there, I got to see quite a few recruits actually. I went down there with Robert Washington, he's a running back in 2016, so we got to look around at some stuff for a while."

On his choice to put TCU in his final 3 -

"I've been to TCU quite a few times and the decision (to name a top 3) just kind of made sense to me with the time frame that I feel like committing in so it kind of made sense to release a top 3 around this time. And, to be able to do it at a Team USA event, with an organization that has done so much for me and my family, I definitely wanted to do something there."

On a time frame for his decision -

"Hopefully, if I get invited to the opening, I'll commit there."

On what he likes about TCU -

"I like the way the coaching style is at TCU and how they're aggressive. Because of some of the things they do, some of the basic stuff, is some of the things we do at my high school so it wouldn't be too much change; it would just be me adapting to the way Coach Patterson does things."

On Courtney Lark's commitment today and if he pays attention to which other recruits are committing in 2016.

"I saw that today and yeah, it matters. You want to know that the class you're coming in with is going to be good when you get there so that we can maintain that level of success, or even upgrade it to something else even better."
