Academic prestige appeals to Wynn

Miami NFTC: Isaiah Wynn Highlights

Highlights of 2014 Watch List offensive guard Isaiah Wynn (Saint Petersburg, Fla./Lakewood Senior) at the March 17th, 2013 Miami Nike Football Training Camp.

ESPN Watch List offensive guard Isaiah Wynn (St. Petersburg, Fla./Lakewood) spent some time in Nashville, Tenn. over the weekend checking out Vanderbilt. And it went better than he even would have predicted.

The 6-foot-2, 270-pound lineman had nothing but great things to say once he got back home.

"Oh, man, so much to say about Vandy," he said. "But I enjoyed myself. The coaches were sincere and treated me like I was already a part of the team."

Wynn has been up front since the very beginning that academics will play a huge role in his decision. Vanderbilt, of course, has a competitive advantage over most schools in that area.

Learning about what they can offer student-athletes was one of the major highlights of the trip.

"I learned that they are in the top 20 for graduation rate and schools for academics," Wynn said. "Also that their academics come first and they will help you achieve your goals."

And without question, the Commodores made a significant impact on Wynn.

"It really opened my eyes up to prestigious D-1 schools," he said. "I am loving everything about them."

Wynn has no more visits scheduled, but will go on the road this summer. His most recent offer came from Wake Forest.
