The scholarship offers just keep rolling in for Celina, Texas safety D'Anton Lynn.
The 6-foot-1, 177-pounder, rated as the nation's No. 28 overall safety prospect, has already added a large group of scholarship offers. Some of those include Arkansas, Illinois, Iowa, Louisville, Nebraska, Penn State, Southern Cal, Texas Tech, UCLA, and others. However, a few days ago, Lynn found out about another school to enter the mix.
"I found out that Florida was offering a few days ago," Lynn said. "They text messaged me last week and wanted me to come to their Friday Night Lights camp. Then a few days ago, I talked with them and they had evaluated my film. They were telling me that they were putting the offer in the mail."

Lynn recently named a top five of Arkansas, Louisville, Penn State, Texas Tech and USC in no specific order.
"Out of those five schools, I felt the most comfortable with those coaching staffs," Lynn said. "When I took the unofficial visits, I really liked the players and everything about the schools.
With his new offer, the three-star prospect says that two other schools are also under consideration.
"The only schools that I plan on really looking at that aren't in my top five are Florida and Nebraska," Lynn said. "With Florida's offer, it's definitely a school that I want to look at. I'm going to Florida on July 3 and I might drive down and make a visit then. Then I'm also planning to go down for the camp.
"Nebraska has been recruiting me for a long time. I told them I was going to visit a long time ago in late July and I still plan on doing that. I want to try to do it around July 27 since there are other recruits going that day. I've kept in touch with D.J. Woods and that's the day he plans to go down."
Originally, Lynn says that he wanted to have his commitment made before his football season. With the new offer and more visits coming up, he says that it may be pushed back just a bit.
"I want to narrow things down sometime in early August," he said. "I was hoping to make my decision before football season. I still want to make my decision as quick as I can, but I don't want to rush anything."
When it comes down to making a decision, Lynn says it really comes down to the people on campus and the environment there.
"Just the school I feel most comfortable with," Lynn said. "The students, the football players, the coaches, the whole environment will be looked at. I don't really look as much at depth chart or location. The main thing is really the coaching staff."
