Nebraska tryout looming for Wynn

With seven offers in hand, defensive end Dylan Wynn is still making the camp circuit to an extent. One, actually, at least right now, this one to Nebraska. The Huskers aren't one of those offers as of yet, but his one-day tryout could change that for the Concord De La Salle star.

At this point Dylan Wynn knows about camps, combines and all that.

He knows what to expect.

It's drills, tests and a lot of stuff that can become the background noise behind what you really want to do.

The one-on-ones.

Sure, everyone wants to run a blinding forty, jump a mile high and show themselves to have acrobatic agility while running side-to-side in half-inch cleats.

But that's the salad, or if you do well, the dessert.

One-on-ones are what matter. And that's where Wynn feels most at home.

"You go up, try to focus, take a nice deep breath and after that it's all reaction," he said. "Some guys probably think about moves they are going to do, but for me, If I think I don't do well. I have seen it in my game. So, I just wait for the guy to do something and I react."

Judging by this impressive list of postseason accolades and his stats for his junior year, you can say that it's working:

2009 (Junior) Post-Season Honors:
All-EBAL Conference 1st Team Defense (Line)
All-EBAL Conference 1st Team Offense (Line)
All-East Bay 1st Team Defense
All East Bay 1st Team Offense
All-Bay Area Metro 1st Team Defense
All-North Coast Section 1st Team Defense
Attended U.S. Army Junior Combine 2010

Finished with 82 tackles, 10 sacks, 36 for loss and two fumble recoveries, in helping Concord (Calif.) De La Salle to the 2009 CIF State Open Division Title.

But no offer from Nebraska as of yet. And this is a young man who knows plenty about the Huskers:

His cousin, Todd Peterson, was a standout wide receiver for the Huskers who graduated just last year. He has other family in Nebraska as well. This camp he's attending in Lincoln will be his third. So, he's camped at Nebraska during the tenures of two different head coaches.

But they haven't offered him while seven others have, including the latest coming from fellow North Division team, Kansas State.

But, the question is obvious: What if they do? If the 6-3, 235 lbs. defensive end shows the coaches what they want to see and they tender an offer, what then?

"Well, it's definitely not one of those things where I'd commit. But it would be a great offer to have," said Wynn who will be stopping by Oklahoma State after his one-day camp in Lincoln.

Wynn did say, though, that if he did get the offer, he would definitely be giving his cousin a call to let him know. "Oh yeah, I'd call him (Todd Peterson. He'd probably be excited," he said.

We'll catch up with Dylan after his camp, and see just how everything went. Stay tuned.
