Wynn Gearing Up For South Carolina Visit

The South Carolina football program has fared well in recent years when recruiting players out of the talent-rich Georgia Military program. Players like Jasper and Casper Brinkley, Brandon Isaac, and Joel Reaves all began their college careers at GMC before donning the South Carolina garnet and black.

The Gamecock coaches are now looking to continue that pipeline with a fresh crop of GMC talent this year, highlighted by 4-star defensive end Jarius Wynn.

Wynn, who measures in at an impressive 6'4 and 270 pounds, is currently enjoying a stellar sophomore campaign at GMC, where he helped lead his team a 9-2 regular season record.

"(Our season) is going good. We finished up 9-2, and we've got a bowl game on December 2. We don't know who we're playing yet, but it's going to be in Brunswick, Georgia. I don't know my stats, but I've had a pretty good year."

On the recruiting trail, Wynn continues to maintain a top five list of schools, with all of his finalists residing in the powerful SEC.

"(The recruiting process) is going good. I'm still focusing on my five schools that I've been looking at - Georgia, Florida, Auburn, South Carolina, and Tennessee."

Wynn has one visit under his belt, and he is now gearing up for an official visit to Columbia this weekend.

"I went to Tennessee a while back when they played Alabama, and I'm going to South Carolina this week."

The 4-star Peach State prospect, who will be visiting South Carolina with GMC teammates Corvey Irvin and Vince Vance, stated that he is looking forward to seeing what the Gamecocks have to offer, because the Brinkley brothers, who are his friends and former teammates, have spoken well about the USC program.

"I just want to hear what they've got to tell me, and check out the school. I'm good friends with (Jasper and Casper Brinkley), and they say they like South Carolina a lot."

Wynn, who is being recruited by Coach Ron Cooper for the Gamecocks, believes that he could make an early impact if he were to attend South Carolina.

"They said if I work hard, I could come in and start."

The versatile Wynn, who could play either defensive end or defensive tackle on the college level, is on track to be a December graduate, and he stated that he will begin to narrow things down after he takes his official visits.

"I don't have a timeframe now. I'm just going to take the visits, then I'll start narrowing it down."

With five SEC teams still in the running for his services, Wynn will look for a few key factors to help him make a final decision on his college destination.

"Academics, playing time, how the coaches are, and how the players like the team."
