2014 Target: Tre'Shun Wynn

MONROE, N.C. --- North Carolina appears poised to be the next school to offer Tre'Shun Wynn, a 6-foot, 170-pound athlete from Monroe High School, a scholarship.

"He's special," Monroe head coach Johnny Sowell said. "He's an athlete. He can play on the offensive side, he can play on the defensive side, special teams – he can do it all. He's a guy that can carry the load and he's the guy that can take a punt and take it the distance."

Prep Career

Wynn earned a starting role in Monroe's secondary as a freshman at cornerback. He also played running back in a reserve capacity.

During his sophomore season, Wynn was a two-way starter earning All-Rocky River Conference and All-Union County recognition, despite missing three games with an injury. On the year, he scored 14 all-purpose touchdowns (10 rushing, one receiving, two on punt returns, and one on an interception) and rushed for 907 yards on 124 carries.

As a junior, Wynn was moved to strong safety and became a more versatile weapon on offense.

"He's a tailback that could play receiver when we go to triples formation," Sowell said.

Wynn ended his junior campaign with 576 yards and 12 touchdowns on 86 rushes (6.7-yard average) and seven catches for 135 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, he collected 58 tackles and two interceptions.


Charlotte, Duke and NC State have offered Wynn, while North Carolina and South Carolina have shown interest.

"Coach [Gunter] Brewer said they're highly, highly interested in [Wynn]," Sowell said. "And we think [a UNC offer] is going to come eventually. They've been here enough, they know what kind of person he is, [and] they know what he can produce on the field. It's just a matter of offering."

On the collegiate level, Sowell sees Wynn as a defensive back.

"He'll probably be looked at more as a corner," Sowell said. "And then as he develops in the weight room, he could go back to the strong safety area."

Charlotte is the only school Wynn has been able to visit. He plans to attend junior days at Duke, UNC, and NC State in the coming months.

"I'm just looking at each campus and what the student life is like," Wynn said. "I want to get around the schools to get to know the coaches and the players."

Extra Notes

Growing up, Wynn rooted for Florida and UNC… Wynn is also a part of Monroe's basketball team and the 4x100 and 4x200 spring relay teams.
