Wynn to host Carolina and Georgia this week

ATHENS – Georgia is still waiting to find out the fate of at least one junior college recruit in particular.

Jarius Wynn, a NJCAA Honorable Mention Pre-Season All-American Defensive Lineman who played high school ball at Lincoln County, is now at home after GMC's 27-0 loss at the Golden Isles Bowl in Brunswick. He's thinking about where to go after GMC, but that's been difficult for him to figure out.

"I really don't know. I really don't know," he said.

Wynn will get a visit from South Carolina and Georgia this week. Coach Cooper and Coach Nicks from Carolina will visit him tonight while Georgia's recruiting coordinator Rodney Garner will visit him at home on Thursday he said.

"I have not committed anywhere," Wynn said, but he indicated that he will likely pick a school sometime this week. Wynn said, however, that he would not necessarily wait to hear from Georgia before picking between one of the two SEC schools, which has been a difficult process he said.

"It gets frustrating because you don't know what you want to do," he said. "First you want to go here and then you want to go there. "Everyone is saying the same thing – I can come in and start."

Wynn will have two years to play two seasons. He said his grades are in order and that he has graduated from GMC. He also said that he and Corvey Irvin are very close and that both would like to go to the same school.

"Yeah most likely we are going to going to the same place," he said, "but it's not a ‘package deal.'"

Conventional thinking is that Georgia would benefit from Wynn being related to former Bulldog defensive lineman Shedrick Wynn, but Jarius said otherwise.

"My cousin went to Georgia, but that doesn't really matter. I have a chance to start at the two schools I have narrowed it down to. My goal is to get to the NFL and get a college degree," he said.
