The 6-foot-2, 283-pound Wynn is a contender for a starting spot at left guard.
At least that’s how senior Kolton Houston views it.
“If he doesn’t start, he’s definitely going to play a lot,” Houston said of the St. Petersburg, Fla. product. “He’s one of the most natural offensive lineman that I’ve ever seen, especially for a freshman. He’s naturally gifted.”
Said quarterback Hutson Mason: “He’s rotated in there a lot.”
That coincides with Houston working strictly at right and left tackle the past two days, he said. Houston was considered a candidate to start at left guard.
Coach Mark Richt said Wynn fundamentally “has a lot of good stuff and he’s a smart, conscientious kid,” but he said rookies tend to hit a wall during camp.
“We’ve got to see if he’s mature enough to push through that time of camp,” Richt said.
Center David Andrews said he was wowed by Wynn the first time he saw him in summer drills.
“The kid’s a baller, he’s a ballplayer,” Andrews said. “He doesn’t have a good clue what’s going on yet. It makes it difficult at times getting everyone on the same page. But we’re day six into camp. …The kid has a lot of raw talent.”
The 5-foot-8, 164-pound McKenzie caught the eye of defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt on Tuesday.
“We threw a ball on the flat and he made a couple of guys miss,” Mason said. “It was real nice, it was smooth. Coach Pruitt goes: `Oh, my Gawd!’ A redneck-like twang. He was talking about Isaiah. That was pretty funny. He’s kind of one of those guys you throw him the ball and let him do his own thing.”
