"He's verbally committed to Louisville and he's going to enroll there in January," Lynch's former high school coach, Waides Ashmon, told InsideTheVille.com recently.
Ashmon's declaration, however, was news to Lynch's current coach - Georgia Military College head coach Bert Williams.
"Louisville hasn't told us they've even offered him. They may have offered him without letting us know and he may well have committed," Williams said Friday. "But I would say that's probably not an accurate statement. I don't know anything about it."
So what does Lynch have to say about the situation?
"(Louisville) never told me I have an offer but I've told them I'm going to go there," Lynch said. "They don't call me all the time since high school and I'm in JUCO now but I've told them that's where I'm going to go."
Both Ashmon and Lynch told InsideTheVille.com that he plans to enroll at Louisville next January. "That's what the plan is," Lynch said. "Coach (Greg) Nord came down here and he told me the plan was to get me up there after I finish here."
Lynch said he talks with Nord "frequently," the last contact with the Louisville assistant coming three weeks ago.
"I plan to visit Louisville and South Carolina in the fall," Lynch said. "The coach told me that Louisville is a family environment and I like that. He told me it's not too fast there and I like that because I'm from a small town and I'm not used to the fast life. Coach Nord really turned me on to Louisville."
"He's a tall, good looking guy," Williams said. "He looks like what you want in a defensive end. He's got the speed and athleticism. So a lot of people are interested in him and Louisville has inquired here."
Lynch starred for Hephzibah High in Blythe, Georgia before heading to Georgia Military. Lynch was off to a good start as a freshman at GMI but a shoulder injury derailed his season.
"I had a pretty good career in high school but grade issues forced me to go Georgia Military College," Lynch explained. "I'm coming back from a shoulder injury and I'm hoping to have a big year for the school."
Lynch says his strengths include instincts, quick reaction to the ball and tackling ability.
