Juarez Wynn Visits Hometown Bulls

One of the uncommitted visitors the USF staff brought in this weekend was Juarez Wynn a two-way athlete with 4.3 speed. In this interview, USFN talks to the Pinellas All-Star about his experience, what he thought of the visit and much more! Read on for the details.

Northeast RB/CB Juarez Wynn is considered the ultimate weapon by his coach, a track star who can score from anywhere on the field. This past weekend he took his first official visit of the season when he made a trip to Tampa to check out the hometown Bulls.

"It went real good, I had a great time," said Juarez Wynn. "We got to see the campus, the facilities, and Raymond James stadium. We also ate a lot of great food all weekend."

Wynn, is a 5'11-178 pound RB/CB that runs a 4.34-40, and is a dynamic two-way player. On offense he rushed for 898 yards, scoring 8 times, and also had 300 yards receiving with 3 scores. At cornerback, the position he's being recruited for has 58 tackles, 8 pass break-ups, 1 forced fumble, and 1 fumble recovery. All while only being passed on 15 times the whole season. Wynn earned First Team All-County at CB, after being an honorable mention 2007, and played in the Pinellas All-star game, where he scored a touchdown.

"I played both offense and defense, and almost never left the field. I played some at KR/PR, but since I played so much they wanted to keep me fresh."

Juarez's host for the weekend was Bulls cornerback Tyson Butler, and he roomed with another Pinellas standout Adaris Bellamy.

"I didn't know him before, but Tyson is a pretty good dude, said Wynn. "Having Adaris as my roommate was pretty fun, also having Gerard Akins & Jaquez Jenkins was good, since we all knew each other. We all hung out with a bunch of the players most of the weekend and had a great time."

Wynn being just over the bay has been to numerous Bulls practices, games, and is friendly with several Bulls player on the team.

"I talk with Jerrell young from Gibbs and he keeps me updated on everything. My former teammate Armando Sanchez tells me he likes it a lot."

"My favorite part was seeing that new Marshall center they have. It's real nice and pretty big."

The Pinellas athlete spent time with DB coach Troy Douglas, Wally Burnham and had a one on one with Head Coach Jim Leavitt.

"My meeting with Coach Leavitt went pretty well. He's a very excited person," said Wynn. "We talked mostly about football and academics."

Wynn came into the weekend with plenty of interest but without an USF offer. Did that change after the visit?

"No they didn't offer. They said they want to wait for me to get my new ACT score."

With his first official visit in the books, the speedy All-County corner has plans to visit Kansas State this weekend and probably Hofstra the week after that. But says his visit went great with the hometown Bulls.

"I like everything about the school, the campus is great," said Wynn. "It's an offer I've been waiting on."
