Clemson legacy drawing big offers, but Wynn not ready to name his top schools

Stephon Wynn is racking up the offers, and Georgia was the latest to offer the elite 2018 defensive end out of Anderson (SC) T.L. Hanna when the Bulldogs offered Sunday.
Wynn visits Alabama today and is hopeful of picking up his 23rd offer from the defending national champs.
Wynn’s father is former Clemson tight end Stephon Wynn Sr. that played in Death Valley from 1990-1994, and having a father who has gone through the recruiting process is helping him take his time and enjoy the recruiting process.
“It's just been a blessing, and I've really been enjoying all of this. I don't take anything for granted,” Wynn told TigerNet Sunday. “I am just going to keep doing what I've been doing and hopefully there will be more offers that come along.”
Wynn has visited Clemson, Georgia, North Carolina and Vanderbilt so far this summer, and he says he takes something different from each visit.
“This summer is probably one of the best summers of my life,” he said. “I've never experienced anything like this. I am meeting new people every other weekend and me and my family are really enjoying it. I look at each school differently. I look at how I could fit in at the school and how I would fit in with the sports program and fit in on the academic side of things. I also have to see if I could see myself living there.”
Wynn is listed as the number three defensive end nationally for the 2018 recruiting cycle by 247, and has already garnered a lot of attention. However, more offers are sure to follow, and he’s already planning what should be a busy fall.
“We are thinking about going on some other visits later on this month, but right now this (Alabama) might be it,” he said. “It's possible I will take a visit somewhere each weekend during the fall and get to a game somewhere each weekend.”
Many think that Wynn might be a Clemson lean because of his connection to the school, but he says the Clemson coaching staff is telling him to reach out to other coaches, visit other schools and to enjoy the recruiting process.
“Clemson is a school I've known since I was little. They are the school I know the best and I've been there a lot. I feel comfortable there,” he said. “They are telling me to enjoy it and visit as many schools as possible and develop relationships with different coaches.”
With plenty of time between now and National Signing Day in 2018, Wynn said he doesn’t have any plays to commit or even pare his list down to a top ten or top five.
“I haven't even thought about that yet,” he said. “I am just enjoying everything right now.”
