Gwyn up to 11 offers

Charlotte, North Carolina offensive lineman Jovaughn Gwyn has seen his recruitment gain some momentum this spring. The Harding University recruit now plans to visit some of the schools that have offered and some others that haven’t.

Gwyn currently has 11 offers. He also starting to gain interest from other schools. Schools in the Carolinas are standing out to Gwyn at this time. “North Carolina State, Duke, Wake Forest, and South Carolina stand out to me the most maybe because I have visited them.”

Georgia Tech is one of the schools that Jovaughn is looking forward to visiting. “I really want to visit them.” Jovaughn had scheduled a two day visit to Tech but his coach was sick and couldn’t make the trip.

The offer from Tech raised his interest in the school. “They are recruiting me hard and I’ve heard that the academics there are great.” Jovaughn is interested in the fact that Tech is a STEM school. He plans to major in mechanical or electrical engineering.

The offense run by Harding is similar to Tech’s. That is a plus in Gwyn’s eyes. Harding runs a Wing-T offense. “The blocking schemes are very similar and I could pick up the difference very easily.”

In addition to visiting Tech this spring, Jovaughn plans to visit Wake Forest, North Carolina State, Duke, and South Carolina. Jovaughn plans to visit additional schools in the summer that he couldn’t visit in the spring.   

Gwyn has two factors that will come into play when making his college choice. “I want the school to definitely have the type of major I’m looking for and the school has to have a reputation for their football players making it big in the business world if the NFL isn’t in their future.” Team chemistry is the other factor that will get Gwyn’s attention. He’ll be looking for a school that has team first type players. Gwyn will also be looking at the chemistry between the coaches and the players.   

Distance from home will not be a factor in Gwyn’s decision. “I don’t want to go too far away from home but I don’t necessarily have to stay real close to home either.” Top Stories
