"I was surprised because I hadn't heard from them much, a couple of letters, but no real contact with the coaches," said Wynn. "Actually, I was snowboarding when my dad called me and told me that they had offered. It's a hobby, and me and a friend had gone up snowboarding."
There is your first. I doubt if Oklahoma State has ever had another prospect that they offered find out while he was snowboarding.
Wynn is a very competitive athlete and while making like Shaun White is a hobby, Wynn is a very accomplished football player and wrestler. In wrestling he competes as a heavyweight, so he sees competition up to 275 pounds. He also compete in track.
"I have offers from Oregon State, Washington State, Oklahoma State, and Cal-Poly," he said when asked about offers.
"I was really excited about the offer from Oklahoma State because I have always wanted to play football in a league like that. Going out of state, away for school is not a problem for me," added Wynn.
"I was born in Texas (Arlington), and left when I was two. I lived in Chicago and then New Hanpshire before moving to California, so I have kind of been around."
Wynn has a profile that fits the attention in recruiting as he helped lead De La Salle to the CIF Open Division Championship. Wynn was named first team All-State Underclass by Golden State Preps.
He finished last season with 82 total tackles, 36 tackles for loss, 10 sacks, and two fumble recoveries. The snowboarding is just something a little extra that you don't often hear about in recruiting.
