Wynn anxious to silence doubters

Jawaun Wynn thinks he has a good idea why he has not yet received offers from schools in the FBS ranks.
At 6-foot-3 and 185-pounds he runs the 40-yard dash in 4.45 seconds and carries an impressive 3.5 grade point average. His vertical leap of 36 inches is indicative of his ability to make plays downfield against smaller, less gifted defensive backs.
The only stain on his record thus far? A junior campaign in which he caught just eight passes for 105 yards and one touchdown.
Wynn isn't worried, though. He knows those numbers have slowed the recruiting process for him, but he's also confident that he will be able to silence any doubters in the coming months, both at camps and in his senior season at Piscataway, N.J.
"That's the only thing stopping me right now," Wynn said of his production as a junior. "Basically I just need to get some good film out there. Last year I started behind some seniors so that's a big reason why it was like that."
One of the seniors from last year that he was behind was Jeremy Crayton, who signed with James Madison in February after spurning offers from two FBS schools.
Wynn is still being heavily recruited by several schools.
"The latest trip I took was Pittsburgh. That was on Friday (June) 12. I was at Syracuse before that.
"Pitt went really good. I sent them some film and they said I'm definitely somebody they could use. I'm gonna give them a call Thursday to see what they say. I had been to the school for their junior day and it was real nice.
"My next three camps are UConn, Boston College and Rutgers. If I do pretty decent at the camps then (offers) should be coming my way later on or midseason."
Wynn said he is open to playing other positions but his primary position is wide receiver. Are those five schools -- Pitt, Syracuse, UConn, BC and Rutgers -- his favorites?
"Yeah, they're the ones I'm visiting right now, and I'm visited them because they've taken an interest in me and I have an interest in them. They came to my school and got my transcript."
