Wynn Commits To Colorado

Colorado offered SoCal quarterback Jordan Wynn by phone Friday. He didn't hesitate to tell them he wants to play football in Boulder. Inside, a Q&A with the quarterback from Oceanside, Calif.

Jordan Wynn led Oceanside High to a state championship in 2007. He went 166-for-283 for 2,589 yards and 21 touchdowns with eight picks during his junior year, and earned All-State, All-San Diego County, All-CIF San Diego Section and All-Avocado League honors.

On Saturday, BSN spoke with Wynn from his home in southern California about his recent commitment to Colorado.

BSN: What made you want to commit to Colorado?
Jordan Wynn
: I took an unofficial visit out there about two months ago and I fell in love with it right away. The coaches made me feel really welcome – both me and my dad. It was a great experience. Ever since then, it was just a matter of time before I was going there. I was just waiting for the offer. It's just a great fit for me.

BSN: When did they actually offer you?
: (Friday) night. And I committed right away.

BSN: Did Coach Hawkins call you, or Coach Helfrich?
: I actually called Coach Helfrich. And he let me know they were offering. I let him know I was committing. Then I called Coach Hawkins and told him, then I called Coach Riddle, who is my area recruiter, and told him. They were all fired up.

BSN: What did they say to you when you told them?
: Just that they were really excited. When they came out to my school about three weeks ago, it was a weird situation because it was raining. So I had to throw in our gym. My basketball coach at our school, he actually stopped basketball practice to let me throw in our gym.

The coaches loved that because it showed I'm well respected at our school.

BSN: Tell me a little bit about your game.
: I'm very accurate. I make really quick decisions. I only got sacked four times last year – part of that was because our offensive line was great, but part of it was I get through my progressions and reads really quickly and put the ball where it has to be.

BSN: What kind of offense to you guys run?
: We run a spread. Four wide (receivers) every play. I threw about 25 times a game last year on average. It's a great offense. It's a lot of fun.

BSN: Who else has offered you?
: Colorado State, Iowa State, Utah, San Diego State and New Mexico all had offered me. Louisville, Wake Forest and Purdue were really close. But I was waiting for Colorado.

BSN: When will you take an official to Colorado?
: We're probably coming out for the Texas game (in September).
