Rutgers Lands Michigan Sensational 4-Star, Who Slams Door Shut On Recruitment

Jun 3, 2024


Greg Schiano persuaded many players to join his cause at Rutgers this weekend, and among them, Muskegon (Mi.) high offensive lineman N’kye Wynn is the most sought after.

According to, Wynn, a highly rated four-star tackle, committed to Rutgers on Sunday despite having 24 offers, including ones from Wisconsin, Arkansas, Ole Miss, Michigan State, Vanderbilt, Pitt, Minnesota, Purdue, Indiana, and Iowa State.

In a surprising move, Wynn canceled four upcoming visits to Wisconsin, Michigan State, Pitt, and Kentucky, even though Kentucky had not yet extended an offer to him.

Additionally, several Group of Five programs such as Cincinnati, Tulane, Western Michigan, Toledo, Miami of Ohio, Liberty, Kent State, Eastern Michigan, Colorado State, Central Michigan, Bowling Green, and Colorado State also made offers to this talented player.

Wynn, a D2 MHSAA state champion with the rank of the fourth-best offensive lineman in Michigan, spearheaded an offense last fall that accumulated 5,400 total yards, with a substantial 4,600 coming from rushing plays. The team averaged 385 yards per game, scoring a total of 82 touchdowns, with 18 touchdowns attributed to Wynn’s efforts.

Impressively, Wynn did not concede any sacks and faced only one pressure throughout the season. He also delivered 67 knockdown blocks, earning him recognition at the all-state level and attracting attention from various colleges nationwide. He showcases his athletic abilities with a 32-inch vertical leap, a 315-pound bench press, a 485-pound squat, and a 40-yard dash time of 5.1 seconds.

Having started 28 games at right tackle, Wynn has a wealth of experience that he will bring to the team. The offensive line unit has notably progressed over the past two years under the guidance of former Giants’ offensive line coach Pat Flaherty.

Over the weekend, 21 high school seniors, including potential recruits for Rutgers, visited the campus to evaluate the facilities, academic offerings, and football strategies of the program. Seven of these players, constituting 33%, hold a four-star rating.

Among the visitors, eight have already committed, potentially shaping the future roster of the Rutgers football team for years ahead.
