Flynn has a leader

A very talented wideout has flown under the radar all season, but he recently finished up a stellar sophomore season and after visiting the school that his older brother plays for, he's ready to name a leader.

"We did ok this year," Flynn told JCFootball.com. "We didn't do as well as we'd hoped. On a personal level I had a pretty good year. I caught 41 passes for 700 yards and had six touchdowns in eight games.

"I injured my shoulder in the first quarter of the ninth game and then I missed our last game so I didn't finish as strong as I wanted to."

Flynn played through the pain of a separated shoulder most of the season, but when it popped out of place in the ninth game, he and the trainers decided it was in his best interest to rest and rehab it so he wouldn't be injured when he headed to the four-year school he eventually ends up at.

"It's 100-percent now," Flynn assured. "I've been lifting weights and running and catching and stuff like that. I'm good to go."

Flynn recently took a visit to San Jose State, one of his two offers, when the Spartans beat Fresno State on December 2nd.

"I was up there with David Richmond and we both had a blast," Flynn said. "My brother was my host up there. He's playing quarterback and that definitely gives them an edge, but I just loved the trip even if my brother wasn't there.

"Coach (Dick) Tomey is such a legendary coach and he's such a great motivator and someone that can make you better. I love their offense and just really had a great time. It doesn't hurt that there was a ton of excitement because they beat Fresno State for the first time in something like 16 years. It was a great weekend."

Flynn said that San Jose State is by far his leader, but he's still open to hearing from other schools at this point.

"Wherever I end up, I'll be on campus for spring practices," Flynn added. "But I'm going to have to take one class during winter quarter so I'm not sure yet if I can sign in December or not."

Flynn will have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
