Recruiting: Lynn To Visit Oklahoma State?

Standout cornerback Gabe Lynn of Jenks, Okla., is expected to be in Stillwater this weekend for his official visit to Oklahoma State. Lynn recently narrowed his list of schools to Arkansas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Nebraska and Southern Cal. Lynn told the Tulsa World of his decision this past weekend and also said he could possibly announce his decision before the end of the season.

"I'm focused on our season, so right now I'm blocking it out during the week and concentrating on the recruiting stuff during the weekends," Lynn told Barry Lewis of The Tulsa World.

On Friday, Lynn was selected to play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl on Jan. 3 at San Antonio. He is the first Jenks player to receive that honor since his brother, Phillip Dillard, four years ago. Dillard is a starting linebacker at Nebraska.

"Since my brother played in the game, I've watched every year," said Lynn to The Tulsa World. "I went to the game that year, and I remember getting to meet the coaches from 'Remember the Titans.' It will be a great honor to play in that game."

Besides Lynn there are other top prospects that have said they will be at the Homecoming game Saturday against Baylor. Midwest City (Carl Albert) standout safety Daytawion Lowe, and Cowboy commitments Tulsa (Union) running back Jeremy Smith and Owasso offensive lineman (and also a U.S. Army All-American selection) Brandon Webb are expected in Stillwater on unofficial visits. There will be others as well.

Jenks has a game Friday against Tulsa Memorial and while his stats aren't dominating, in part because opposing teams stay away from him, just watching one game of Lynn shows you how talented he is.

"If he was playing against us, we wouldn't want to throw it in his general vicinity," Jenks coach Allan Trimble told The Tulsa World. "He is a very hard worker and a diligent young man who has turned into a great leader for us this year.

"He is very well-grounded with very supportive parents who have gone through (recruiting) once before with Phillip," continued Trimble in his interview with the Tulsa newspaper. "It is a lot of pressure on a young man who has so many great opportunities. I know he's anxious to make the decision and putting a lot of thought into it."

Again, Lynn is expected to visit the Cowboys this weekend on an official visit with a number of other prospects who will be attending on unofficial visits.
