Wynn ready to go

Piscataway (N.J.) High receiver and Rutgers commit Jawaun Wynn will be one of many recruits signing a national letter of intent Wednesday, and shortly after that he will be a fixture at the football offices as he works to get a head start heading into the summer. The 6-foot-3 200-pound Wynn took his official visit last week, and also divulged what coach Greg Schiano told him to expect.

Short of enrolling early and competing in spring practice, Piscataway (N.J.) High receiver and Rutgers commit Jawaun Wynn plans to do everything possible to give himself a chance of playing as a true freshman.

He will sign his binding national letter of intent Wednesday, then become a fixture at the Hale Center.

"I sign on Feb. 3,'' Wynn said. "That Monday, Feb. 8, I am going to be able to go up there and start lifting weights, go to all the meetings and just learn the offense, the playbook, and stuff like that. That's really big for me.''

At the end of his official visit last weekend, the 6-foot-3, 200-pound Wynn had a chance to speak with coach Greg Schiano about his role next season.

"He told me it is totally up to me whether I play as a freshman,'' Wynn said. "He told me if I come in with a bang, then I'll probably get on the field right away. If it doesn't work out, I'll probably red-shirt, but that red-shirt year is real important and I could learn some more stuff, so when I come in the next year I can be real good.''

Another thing that could accelerate Wynn's early development is his attendance at spring practice. His plan is to be there for each of the 15 sessions.

"At the end of the visit, when (Schiano) was talking to us, I asked him where I fit in,'' said Wynn, whose last 40-yard dash time was 4.45 seconds. "He said the part that I fit in, with Tim Brown leaving, they lose a lot of speed, and I could bring that speed aspect back with a bigger body. That would be good.

"I'll probably play the X receiver. They can put me anywhere, where ever they can find a mismatch.''

Wynn was also impressed with new receivers coach P.J. Fleck, who has made an impression on recruits with his energy.

"He's all over the place,'' Wynn said. "He said if we do something good on the field, like if we score a touchdown, he'll probably run down the field and be right in your face before you see anybody else. And he said if you do something bad, he'll also do the same thing. I like that.''

Also, Wynn said he has already gone through the NCAA Clearinghouse. He added he wants to major in science field because of his strength in biology.
