Lincolnton (Ga.) Lincoln County is one of the most successful and storied programs in the history of Georgia high school football, producing many state championships and college recruits in the last 30 years. The top prospect for the Red Devils in the class of 2005 is defensive end Jarrius Wynn.
“I’ve been getting a lot of letters,” Wynn said. “Some of the schools mailing me are Michigan, Oklahoma, Florida, Georgia, Ball State and Tennessee. Auburn called me a couple of weeks ago and they are the only one so far.”
The 6-foot-3, 235-pound Wynn is quick off the ball and has a nice 4.65-second 40-yard dash time.
“I would say that Auburn is probably recruiting me the hardest, but I get a lot of mail from Tennessee and Georgia too,” Wynn said. “I’ve gotten some handwritten letters from Clemson. Florida, Georgia and South Carolina all came by and watched me practice and talked to my coach this spring.”
Wynn boats a 285-pound bench press and 405-pound squat. He has a nice frame that would allow him to add weight in college.
“I went to Georgia’s spring game and I got to talk to coach (Brian) Van Gorder,” Wynn said. “I liked my visit and I really like coach Van Gorder. He is a cool guy and a real good coach. The best word I could use to describe him is intense.”
He plans to attend camp at Georgia and Auburn this summer. He was invited to the NIKE camp in Atlanta, but due to travel issues was unable to make it.
