Remember Raiders of the Lost Ark and the giant rock chasing Indiana Jones? I feel like Mario is the rock and Indy is every other coach in America right now, at least every other coach in Florida. The Miami Hurricanes and Mario Cristobal got another commitment from a 5-Star as IMG Academy DE Jayden Wayne turned down offers from Alabama, Georgia, LSU and plenty of others in order to say CANES!. Cristobal has been recruiting the Washington native since 2019 while he was at Oregon so the relationship has been there for some time. In a very positive development, this is the third commit from our new thriving pipeline at IMG in Bradenton.
According to reports, Wayne is looking forward to getting his hands dirty and even mentioned his desire to learn from Hall of Famer Jason Taylor. See, he’s not just here to look exceptional hoodies and move merch! Wayne is 6-foot-5, 245 and is listed as the No. 5 edge rusher and No. 30 player in the class, according to 247Sports’ composite rankings. With the commitment, the Canes 2023 Class ranking is now #7 in the country.
How are you liking July so far? Are you sensing the Mariomentum building?
