Coach Glows Over Wynn

Isaiah Wynn

St. Petersburg (Fla.) Lakewood head coach Corey Moore talks about his star offensive line prospect, Isaiah Wynn.

There's no question that offensive lineman Isaiah Wynn has been one of the hottest prospects this spring. He went from being a known recruit with a few offers to a big time prospect with 27.

"What has happened with Isaiah is not surprising," said Corey Moore, his coach. "He's handling everything beautifully. You would never know that he even has an offer. In fact, you would think he has no offers. I will say this; Isaiah Wynn is a better kid than a football player."

That speaks volumes for this St. Petersburg (Fla.) Lakewood standout four-star offensive guard prospect. South Florida was his first offer last summer. Then came Vanderbilt and a few small school offers. Then once the class of 2013 was signed and done, the roof blew off for Wynn. Over the past six to eight weeks he has landed scholarship offers from FSU, Florida, Miami, Georgia, Tennessee, Auburn, Georgia Tech, West Virginia, Michigan State, Ole Miss, Nebraska and many others.

"We have had 88 schools come through," Moore said. "Florida was here today for about 30 minutes. It's non-stop and much of it is about Isaiah. I still think Vandy has the edge."

Wynn, 6-foot-3 and 270-plus pounds, is a mauler. He's got great length, feet, can bend and show flexibility and is a finisher.

"He's all that," Moore said. "His biggest improvement has been his knowledge of the game. He has worked real hard at that part of it.

"The other thing with Isaiah is that his strengths are his fundamentals. This kid is fundamentally sound. He's athletic. When you have an athletic lineman who's fundamentally sound you have a scary mix. There's balance there. And then he has a violence to his game. This kid can finish like no one else. We talk about it all the time, to finish with a violent push. I preach to him that he's not done until he puts a kid on his back."
