Recruiting: Lynn Talks About His OSU Visit

One aspect about Jenks, Okla., cornerback Gabe Lynn, who is one of the very best at his position in the nation among the senior high school players and college prospects, is that he has kept his recruiting very business like.

Lynn, who has been selected for the U.S. Army All-American Game in San Antonio, Texas for Jan. 4 and is a major reason that Jenks looks like they could repeat as Oklahoma Class 6A state champions, has a brother, Phillip Dillard, playing for Nebraska.

He has been to Lincoln, has a visit scheduled for Oklahoma on Nov. 1 and has a yet to be set visit for North Carolina. His fourth school in the running, Oklahoma State, had its visit this weekend. Lynn left for Stillwater after Jenks defeated Tulsa Memorial 63-0 Friday night.

"We left right after the game was over and we got to Stillwater and hotel about 1 a.m.," said Lynn. "We stayed in the hotel with the team and were around the team leading up to the game on Saturday."

Lynn, who said the game itself was a positive, said he had a major objective on his visit.

"My host was Broderick Brown and he showed me around," said the 6-1, 185-pound corner who SuperPrep magazine ranks as the top defensive back prospect in the nation. "I really wanted to be around the players, so that I could talk to them about the coaches and about the relationships. I guess that is the one thing that stood out to me on the visit is the player and coach relationships. They are really good and that is what I am looking for."

Lynn said he is happy with the way the Jenks season is going and the way the Trojans are playing as they get ready for the playoffs in several weeks.

I also asked him about a timetable for his recruitment and he said it could come soon after his final visit. Remember he has now been to Nebraska and Oklahoma State. Oklahoma comes up on Nov. 1 and North Carolina could be scheduled anytime after that.

"I would say after my last visit that I will know what I need to know," said Lynn. "It (his commitment) could come as soon as a week after that last visit."
