"A true freshman from Chandler High School, Jared mainly focused on running the 800m in high school. However, I believe he has great potential over the longer distance races. He possesses the natural speed and the willingness to work at the longer distances that could make him a solid contributor to cross country and a high caliber mile in the competitive Pac-10."
