Jared Wiley at home as Texas commit
Texas wanted a pair of tight ends in the 2019 class after signing just Malcolm Epps at the position in 2018. The Longhorns identified Jared Wiley, a 6-6, 225-pound quarterback at Temple, as the perfect compliment to four-star Brayden Liebrock (Ariz.). Wiley showed potential at tight end as a junior. He’ll move back to quarterback as a senior to lead his program. It’s that type of selflessness that endears him to teammates and to the Texas staff.
At what age did you fall in love with football?
Sixth grade, because I loved the contact within each play.
What made Texas your choice?
Every visit I was part of felt more comfortable.
What are your goals as a senior?
Win a state championship and be the best player, on and off the field, I can be for my community.

Academics, to set me up for the future.
What word would you use to describe Tom Herman?
Where do you see yourself playing at Texas?
Utility. Anywhere Texas needs me to play, I’ll play.
What artist would you most like to see live?
Favorite athlete of all-time?
Favorite sport to watch other than football?
