At 5-7 and 155 pounds, Cleveland Glenville athlete Shane Wynn would appear to be a niche prospect who fits only a few offensive schemes in the country, but his offer list tells a different story. The electric talent has raked in offers from some of the biggest college programs in the game.
Among the schools that have offered are Illinois, Miami, North Carolina, Ohio State, Tennessee, USC, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Michigan State and Michigan. In the past, Wynn has listed favorites and a top group of schools, but at this point no one leads for his services.
"Really no one is the team to beat right now," Wynn said. "I kind of have interest in Oregon, but they haven't offered yet."
Glenville has a long tradition of sending their best players to Ohio State. Wynn made his only unofficial visit this fall to Columbus, but does not consider the Buckeyes, or any other team, his favorite at this time.
"I went down to Ohio State when they played Miami U," Wynn reported. "I'm always going to love them, but no one is at the top of my list right now."
Wynn has continued to see his offer list grow this fall, so for now he is focused on his senior season at Glenville and will address his recruitment in the coming months. Official visits will be taken, but he has not scheduled any at this time and plans to play his recruitment all the way out through the winter.
"I plan to take all five of them, but I don't know when I'm going to take them," Wynn said. "Most likely I will decide on Signing Day. It's about academics, who's willing to help and really a good school period."
Wynn also has no definite plans for future unofficial, game day visits, though he will likely see another game or two during the college football season.
Cleveland Glenville is off to a 7-0 start and is ranked as the nation's No. 17 high school team by RivalsHigh.com. Wynn has contributed to the Tarblooder's perfect record by returning three kickoffs for touchdowns, one punt for a touchdown and scoring three times on offense while playing slot receiver and running back.
