After dedicating his entire life to the game of football, all the hard work paid off for CFC100 WR Jared Wayne out of Pittsburgh, who signed with the Houston Texans as an undrafted free agent.

The Peterborough, ON native spent four years at Pittsburgh where he became one of the most lethal threats in the ACC out wide. It didn’t take long for him to make an impact in blue and gold starting four games as a true freshman finishing the year with 18 catches for 261 yards and one touchdown, including becoming the first true freshman since 2013 to register a 100 yard game against Boston College. He slowly continued to increase his workload as a sophomore starting three games, and was able to increase his totals with 21 catches for 361 yards and one major. The following year he made a big jump finishing second on the team in receptions with 47 for 658 yards and six touchdowns, which was just a glimpse of what he’d deliver in his senior year. He finally earned the full-time starting role appearing in 12 games, and rewarded the coaching staff with a breakout campaign catching 60 passes for 1063 yards and five touchdowns, which was good enough to earn Second-Team All-ACC honours. Wayne also joined elite company on campus with a mesmerizing performance against Miami in the final week of the season catching 11 passes for 205 yards and three touchdowns, which was the most yards by any receiver since Larry Fitzgerald suited up for the Panthers.

Wayne began his high school career locally at Trinity College, and would go on to complete his journey at Clearwater Academy in Florida. He finished as the fourth ranked prospect on the CFC100 Class of 2019 Rankings.
