Unofficial visitor set

It can never be said enough how important it is to make an impression on Gabe Lynn whenever he is in Lincoln. He has been up to Lincoln, for unofficial visits and to see his brother Phillip Dillard who is Nebraska's starting inside linebacker, a number of times already. However, the Huskers will have a chance to host him again very early in the season.

The name of Gabe Lynn has been known by Nebraska fans since he was a freshman and his brother, Phillip Dillard, was set to become a Cornhusker. Lynn now is one of the most sought after cornerbacks in the nation.

A standout cornerback for Jenks (Okla.), Lynn has amazing athleticism and natural cover ability to go along with a big frame at the cornerback position. Lynn is 6-foot-1 and 180-pounds to go along with having a 4.5/40 time.

"I think my size is good for a cornerback," Lynn said. "I play very physical. That's what really separates me from everybody else. I'm also a real hard hitter and I have really good hips.

"I'm always making sure I work on improving my flexibility and staying loose. It's really important. The one thing I'd like to improve is my man cover skills. I need to focus on that a lot more."

Nebraska is looking to start the season out with a bang under the lights in Memorial Stadium on August 30th against Western Michigan. One of the recruits that will be in the stands will be Lynn.

"It's not an official visit. But, I will be up in Lincoln for the game as an unofficial visitor. I am looking forward to seeing Phillip get his first start in Lincoln."

Dillard is going to be one of the key cogs to Nebraska's defense this fall and is also one of the players that might benefit the most from the changes on the defensive side of the ball with the changes on the coaching staff.

Lynn is also considering other schools such as USC, Oklahoma, Arkansas, LSU, Oklahoma State and North Carolina to name off some of his favorites. Gabe Lynn finished his junior season with 52 tackles, five interceptions and four kicks returns for touchdowns. Lynn says he can bench 225 pounds and squats 333. He also has a 30-inch vertical. Lynn reports a 2.9 core GPA and a 19 ACT.
