Wynn hit the portal April 26th after just one season in Lincoln with the Cornhuskers. Prior to his arrival at Nebraska he signed with Alabama out of IMG Academy in 2018. He will arrive in Oxford with one year of eligibility.
Last year he served as a key component of Nebraska’s defensive line rotation as a reserve player, tallying 304 snaps.
As a member of the Class of 2018, Wynn was a four-star recruit who played for IMG Academy, and he was ranked as the No. 3 weak-side defensive end in the country and the No. 16 player in South Carolina.
