2019 Cherry Creek offensive lineman Michael Lynn commits to Nebraska
Michael Lynn knew after his visit to Nebraska that Lincoln was the place he wanted to spend the next few years of his life, he just needed to visit a few more schools to make sure that Nebraska was the right choice for him.
With his senior season quickly approaching, Michael made the decision that the little voice in the back of his head telling him that Lincoln was the place to be was something he could no longer ignore.
“Honestly, I was ready to end it and just put 100% of my focus into my senior season instead of recruitment and the season. After visiting each university my heart just kept coming back to Lincoln and my mind kept telling me this (Nebraska) is where I should be”
As for why he chose Nebraska, the atmosphere that the coaches created in making it feel like home went a long way in selling Lynn on the Huskers. Pair that with this staffs desire to teach its players and teach them in a respectful manner went a long way in selling Lynn on the Big Red.
“They (the coaching staff) are extremely collective when they coach, they don’t try to rip your head off. They tell you what you did wrong and how to fix it”
At 6’6, 291lbs, Michael Lynn holds over 12 division one scholarship offers and has the prototypical size for an offensive tackle at the next level.
Thanks to his massive frame and strength, Michael is a terrific run blocker and will only improve as he continues to build his body. At the next level, he will need to work on his pass blocking and leverage to become a dominant lineman in college.
While he has things to work on in his game, Michael oozes potential and is the type of kid who puts in the necessary hours to get better. With his frame, he could be a terrific lineman after a few years of collegiate coaching and strength and conditioning.
Check out his highlights below and let us know how many pancakes you can count:
What’s next for Michael Lynn?
With his recruitment all wrapped up, Lynn plans on spending his final season at Cherry Creek High School improving his grades and working with his teammates to bring a championship trophy home to its “rightful home” in Cherry Creek.
Lynn has shut down his recruitment and will be back in Lincoln this fall for his official visit. Right now, he’s tentatively set to come into town for the Colorado vs Nebraska game with several other recruits and maybe even a friend or two.
With Michael’s commitment, the Huskers now have 15 commits in the 2019 class and move up to 26th in 247sports team rankings. Lynn is the Huskers second Husker commit from the state of Colorado joining quarterback Luke McCaffrey from Valor Christian HS.
