Hard-hitting. Intelligent. Aggressive. These are only a few words that recruiting fanatics have used to describe Dillard High School (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.) S Wayne Lyons.
On an unofficial visit to College Park, Lyons talked to players and coaches, and toured the football facilities. He said he liked Byrd Stadium and the fact that Maryland's campus is close to Washington, D.C..
But Maryland recruiters are fighting against myriad Division 1a schools for Lyons' commitment. The rising senior has received offers from Stanford, UCLA, Notre Dame, Ole Miss, Florida State, Florida and Miami, to name a few.
If the Terps happens to snag Lyons, the sixth-ranked high school safety in the nation, the program will presumably benefit from Lyons' "go-out-and-get-‘em" attitude.
"I love everything about football, the big hits and, basically the big hits," Lyons said. "I love seeing people get knocked out."
But Lyons said he's not focusing on getting recruited right now. "I'm just trying to focus on working out, get my team better to win a state championship," Lyons said. "I just got to see if I can fit in [Maryland's] system and see if I can see myself going to school there."
Maryland One of Many Choices for Lyons
