Dylan Wynn is back from Oregon State and the three-star defensive end from Concord (Calif.) De La Salle could be closing in on a decision.
Wynn, a fierce 6-foot-3, 234-pound recruit, said when De La Salle teammate Blake Renaud, who also visited Oregon State, returns home Thursday night or Friday from a trip to Boise State that the two will sit down and talk about their futures. It's no secret the duo would like to play together in college.
"(Renaud) liked it a lot," Wynn said of the Oregon State trip. "It all depends on what he wants in a school. We tend not to talk too much about football. We talk more about shows and Family Guy when we're just hanging out. He did like Oregon State though.

"When he comes back I'm going to sit down with him and we're probably going to have a decision coming up."
This was Wynn's second trip to Corvallis and it allowed him a better opportunity to understand what life would be like on a daily basis rather than just from a football perspective. Wynn liked what he saw and has said he'd prefer to have a decision made before the start of his senior season.
"It was fun," Wynn said. "It was nice because I got to check out things I didn't get to see on the first trip. It's helping me narrow down exactly where I want to go.
"I got to see more of what my day-to-day life would be. On my first trip I watched football practice, I checked out mostly the football aspects of the school and then on my second trip I checked out my student life and where that would put me and how each one of my days would go and what my typical day would be like if I went to that school.
"I got to know (the coaching staff) on a more personal level so I joke around with them and they joke around with me. It puts you more on a less professional level and more on a what's up level and it made things a lot more relaxed."
Oklahoma State is also listed with high interest by Wynn, rated No. 27 at strong-side defensive end and No. 37 in the California state rankings by Rivals.com, and Cal Poly, Colorado State, Fresno State, Kansas State, Ohio, San Diego State and Washington State have also offered.
But Wynn has made it no secret that he and Renaud would prefer to play in college together and Ohio is the only program other than Oregon State to have offered both. The Beavers seem like the more realistic option at this point.
