Jared Mayden Quick Hitter

Head coach Charlie Strong and company have been quick to identify some of the top talent in the class of 2016. One such player is 6-foot-, 190-pound corner Jared Mayden from Sachse (TX)

Jared Mayden has been a major priority of head coach Charlie Strong and defensive backs coach Chris Vaughn since they arrived in Austin. The four-star corner had a chance to visit earlier today and work out for the coaching staff.

"I arrived in Austin at about 7:50 with my mom and my little brother," Jared Mayden said. "As soon as I walked into registration coach [Chris] Vaughn was right at the door. They were telling me how excited they were to work with me. Coach is an overall cool dude with a lot of knowledge about the game. Charlie Strong is really putting Texas together nice."

Mayden has had the eye of Texas on him since Charlie Strong and company arrived. He will be one of the most heavily recruited players regardless of position for Texas in the 2016 class.
