As a Recruit
Jayden Wayne emerged early on in his high school career as one of the best players in Washington. He started as a freshman at Lincoln Way and was named an Adidas All-American and was even invited to play in the All-American Bowl. Lincoln football coach Masaki Matsumoto said he knew early on that Wayne was special. “He’s been great with us this whole time,” Matsumoto said. “He’s a quiet kid with a good head on his shoulders. He also has a 4.0-grade point average.” Wayne plans on majoring in business. His hobbies are working out, spending time with his family, cooking and playing video games. His parents are Courtney and Donald Wayne Jr. His siblings are Daeshawn Wayne, Keiyon Wayne and Neiyonne Wayne. Daeshawn Wayne played football at Georgetown.
