A new offer would shake things up for Wynter

Henry County defensive lineman Jahmal Wynter has had a strong senior season thus far. The performance by the 6’2”-263 Wynter has led to strong interest from several out of state schools as well as interest from two in-state schools.


Jahmal recently completed visits to two of those schools. The visit to Oregon State was the first official visit for Jahmal. Oregon State is recruiting Wynter as a defensive tackle. Most of the schools recruiting Wynter see him as either a defensive end or defensive tackle. “The visit was good and I got to talk to all of the coaches.” Oregon State is now one of Jahmal’s leaders.   

The unofficial visit for Jahmal was to Georgia Tech for their Thursday night game with Clemson. Wynter had previously visited Tech and had a chance to tour the campus at that time. “This trip I took a look at the athletic facilities.” The tour included the weight room, where he talked to the strength and conditioning coaches, as well as the locker room. “We also got a look at the players walk before the game.”

Georgia Tech cornerback Coach Joe Speed hosted Jahmal on the visit. Coach Speed is recruiting Jahmal to play the “three technique”. Jahmal also met with defensive line Coach Mike Pelton. “We talked about how my season was going.”

In addition to those two visits, Jahmal also has three other visits in mind. “I plan to go to Georgia Southern, Western Kentucky, and Eastern Kentucky.” The visits to Southern and Eastern Kentucky will be official visits. “I plan to make my decision following the official visits.”

As things stand now, Oregon State and Georgia Southern are the two schools recruiting Jahmal the hardest. What would an offer from Georgia Tech mean to Jahmal? “It would discombobulate things.”    

Jahmal has three simple things that he’s looking for when making his decision. He’s looking for a small town feel, a school with a football tradition, and a school that will prepare him for life after football. Distance will not be an issue in making his college choice. “I’ve talked it over with my family and they are on board with my choices.”
