Jarius Wynn Plans To Reschedule Trip To USC

South Carolina has developed a recruiting pipeline to Georgia Military College in recent years, and the Gamecocks are looking to grab another top prospect out of GMC this year in defensive end Jarius Wynn. The 6'5, 270 pound Wynn is widely considered to be one of the top overall prospects in the JUCO ranks this year, and he has drawn scholarship offers from some of the top programs in the SEC.

"I have offers from Florida, Auburn, South Carolina, Mississippi State, and a lot of little schools."

Wynn, who is being recruited by Coach Ron Cooper for the Gamecocks, was scheduled to make a visit to Columbia this past weekend to take in the Wofford game, but due to car troubles, he was not able to make the trip.

"I didn't get to go, because I had to get my car straightened out."

The Scout.com 3-star rated prospect is planning on rescheduling his visit to South Carolina for later in the year.

"I‘m planning on visiting South Carolina later in the season, but I don't have any dates yet."

Wynn claims no favorites at this time, but he does have a timeframe for when he would like to make a decision.

"I'm going to make some visits first, then I'm going to decide after that."

One factor working in South Carolina's favor is the friendship that Wynn has developed with current Gamecocks and former GMC teammates, Jasper and Casper Brinkley.

"I played with Jasper and Casper Brinkley (at GMC). I knew them before they came here too, we're friends. They say they like South Carolina a lot. They say it's different and better than GMC."

Wynn, who will be a December graduate from GMC, described how his junior college season is going thus far.

"It's going good. I've got four or five sacks, and I don't know how many tackles I've got."

The talented pass rusher described his strengths as a player, as well as the areas that he would still like to improve in.

"My strength is rushing in. I feel like going hard at all times, I do whatever it takes. I definitely want to improve my game too. I can get better at everything."

With the physical frame that Wynn possesses, he could potentially play either defensive end or defensive tackle in the coming years, but he did not hesitate to respond when asked which position he prefers.

"I like defensive end better."

Wynn is a monster physical specimen, as he runs a 4.8 forty yard dash, claims a 32 inch vertical, and recently bench pressed 225 pounds 24 times. His combination of strength and explosiveness set him apart, and the former Lincoln Country High School star is sure to make one lucky program very happy in the coming months. He will enroll in his school of choice in January, and as is typically the case with JUCO players, he will have three years to play his two remaining seasons of eligibility.
