July 9, 2022
Miami got more good news on Saturday! Edge rusher Jayden Wayne (Bradenton, FL - IMG Academy) announced his verbal commitment to Miami.
At 6’-5”/245, Jayden is rated 98, ranked the #5 Edge and the #30 overall prospect in the 2023 recruiting class. The Tacoma Washington native chose Miami over Alabama, Georgia, Oregon and LSU among his 42 scholarship offers.
Jayden is Miami’s second 5-star commitment to the Canes' 2023 recruiting class. He is Miami’s 13th verbal commitment to the Canes’ class that now ranks #8 in the country.
In 2021, Jayden registered 44 tackles and 9 sacks, in addition to 18 catches for 269 yards and 5 touchdowns as a wide receiver.
Jayden is a very good multi-sport athlete (football and basketball) and played at an elite level on both sides of the ball as a rush end and wide receiver. Now that he will focus on football, he has the frame to add both bulk and strength at the college level. Jayden has excellent burst and lateral movement, combined with a high motor. His agility and quickness separates himself from the pack. He has all the skill sets needed to develop into a high round NFL rush end.
Welcome to the U, Jayden! Welcome to our family!
