"My coach called me in the office and told me Wisconsin offered," Mayden told BadgerNation. "I was shocked because I've never talked to Wisconsin. I really don't know much about them, but I've watched them a few times on TV and like how they play."
The 6-0, 190-pound Mayden was not the only person at his school to land a Badgers offer, as fellow teammates - sophomore wide receiver Devin Duvernay and junior running back Devine Ozgibo – also received Wisconsin offers. Would he be in favor in competing with his teammates in college?
"I would like to play with my teammates at the next level," said Mayden.
Mayden had 25 tackles, two interceptions, four forced fumbles and four pass breakups.
