Could he commit this weekend?

It's no secret that D'Anton Lynn has had Penn State towards the top of his list through the entire process for the most part. This weekend, Lynn will take his first official visit and it will be out to Penn State to see them play Notre Dame. There are no other official visits set, but he does mention some other trips he would like to take.

Celina (Texas) has had an amazing run over the past three years or so. D'Anton Lynn has been a big part to Celina's success and they are again off to a good start.

"Yeah, we had our first game last Friday," Lynn said. "We played Waco Robinson and we did pretty good. They went to state last year. We won 19-6."

Lynn was used sparingly on offense, mostly to shift the defense's focus onto him, and made his largest contributions on defense as safety. Not surprisingly, he wasn't challenged too much that night.

"I didn't play too much offense. They are going to play me more as the season goes. I played a little tight end, split end and tail back. I had one carry for five yards and one catch for 20 yards."

"On defense I had 13 tackles playing safety. They threw two passes the whole game. I think that it was one slant and one screen. They didn't challenge me at all."

The contact period has once again opened up and Lynn has been busy. He has missed some calls and didn't know everyone who has called that he has missed.

"The coaches have started calling me again. I have received calls from North Texas, Penn State, Florida, Ohio State, Louisville and I missed some other calls."

Along with the contact period comes the time to start taking official visits. Lynn will be on his first official visit this weekend out to see Penn State.

"I am taking my first official visit this weekend to the Penn State/Notre Dame game. After that, I am not sure where my next one might be. I am just going to do it one week at a time."

The Penn State visit is the only set visit that Lynn has currently. There are a few other schools that Lynn has some thoughts about potentially visiting.

"Probably a USC game or a Florida game. I wouldn't mind going to the Nebraska/USC game in Lincoln. Then, maybe Texas Tech because they are close."

Lynn said that he hasn't had any talks with anyone at Nebraska to talk about taking that official visit next weekend, yet. "No, I haven't talked to the coaching staff since my visit there. I would like to set one up though."

Celina is looking to try and go wire to wire as the number one team in the state. Lynn admits that he and his team have been a little spoiled with their success and that staying focused from week to week is critical.

"We are #1 in the state right now. It's hard to keep a level head. I moved here my sophomore year and we won state my sophomore year and went to state my junior year."

"Every single game, opposing teams give us their best. They see Celina and they give us their best. We are their chance at state. We can't take anyone lightly."
