Wynn: 'I loved it!'

Alabama hasn't yet offered one of the best offensive linemen in the Sunshine State, but things became much clearer on the path to the plateau for the four-star while on campus Saturday.

Isaiah Wynn had been looking forward to his Saturday visit to Alabama for some time.

Between talks with Mario Cristobal and his good friend and fellow class of 2014 prospect Vincent Jackson Jr., an offer seemed imminent from the defending champs entering the day.

"They didn't offer, they said they want me to come to the camp for center," he said.

Still, the short-term letdown didn't outweigh the positives from the day for Wynn, who was excited that Jackson did snag his offer from Nick Saban and company.

"Aw man, I loved it!" said the Saint Petersburg (Fla.) Lakewood standout of the trip. "Would have automatically moved to my top leader if I got the offer today, hands down."

Wynn was able to tour the campus, check out the football facilities as well as sit down with the coaching staff before and after watching Saturday's spring football scrimmage.

Each element made a mark, but none as big as the staff and the four-star's comfort in Tuscaloosa.

"It was just their coaching staff and how comfortable I felt around the campus," said the 6-foot-3, 270 pounder. "And their academic building was amazing. I have not seen an academic building like theirs."

Back on the football side of things, the center position was the main topic between both Cristobal and Saban in regards to Wynn.

"He (Cristobal) mainly just kept saying that he is glad I came up and we talked a little offensive line stuff," he said.

"(Saban) just talked about me playing center," he added with a laugh.

Wynn hadn't yet previously heard that the Crimson Tide coveted him at center, but the news isn't something that will slow his stride for the offer.

"I've been practicing it this spring," he admitted. "Long-snapper, too."

FOX Sports NEXT/Scout.com currently ranks Wynn as the No. 34 offensive tackle prospect nationally.
