Four star d-end, parents like OSU 'a lot'

A FOUR-STAR RATED defensive end prospect (6-2, 235) from a storied high school program in California took an unofficial visit with his parents earlier this spring to Oregon State. It went well, he said. Very well.

"I like OSU a lot," said Dylan Wynn, out of Concord's De La Salle High. "It reminds me a lot of my school, with the community and the family.

"And they're another school that my parents have loved a lot. They made a big impression on my parents, too. I've gotten to know some of the players, and talked to them when I was watching practice."

Wynn said he's not close to making a decision, and has other schools he holds in high regard as well. But OSU made about as strong an impression as they could have when he was in Corvallis.

"It's a school I feel really comfortable at," said Wynn. "But I'm very, very open minded and I'm talking to all the schools equally. I'll have to visit all of the schools, and hopefully get more offers, and then figure out what I want to do."

WYNN HOLDS OFFERS from Oregon State, Washington State, Oklahoma State, Ohio and Cal Poly. An additional Pac-10 offer, from Stanford, sounds like it could be imminent.

"It could be very soon depending on certain criteria I have to reach with my classes... (A Stanford education) would be a knockout with my parents, but I'm staying very, very open-minded with my (recruiting) right now," said Wynn.

AS A JUNIOR, Wynn earned consensus postseason honors in the East Bay and CIF-North Coast Section and was named first team All-State Underclass by after helping lead De La Salle to the CIF State Open Division title.

"Schools are wondering if I can do my drop backs, it's come to the point that schools are waiting for me to go to a camp and see if I can do my drop backs. But I think they're going to be really satisfied when they see what I can do," he said.

Wynn most recently took an unofficial trip to WSU for their spring game. He said the WSU staff, like Oregon State's, made strong impressions on he and his dad.

"I got to know a lot of stuff I really, really liked... When I got there, I liked it a lot. And then I got to like it more, and more, and more...My dad loved the campus, he loved everything about it. And he loved the coaching staff -- he definitely loved the coaching staff," said Wynn.

WYNN, THE No. 25 ranked DE prospect in the nation on, racked up 82 tackles -- with 36 for loss -- along with 10 sacks and two fumble recoveries in 2009.
