How he got here: Lynn’s recruitment to Nebraska was not very long. He visited unofficially for the spring game in April but left without an offer. That changed when offensive line coach Greg Austin offered him June 1, and Lynn committed on Aug. 5. Lynn was not heavily recruited until his senior year, but his large frame attracted a handful of schools as his high school career wrapped up.

Our take: Lynn’s commitment is overshadowed by another offensive tackle, four-star Bryce Benhart. But Nebraska needs depth at that position, and though Lynn may not contribute as quickly as Benhart, the building of depth on Nebraska’s offensive line is a plus for Scott Frost’s program moving forward.

They said it: I saw Lincoln for the first time and I knew. I saw (Colorado) sophomore year, and it was beautiful, but after I saw Lincoln, I was like, ‘Man, forget Boulder.’ ” — Lynn on why he picked the Huskers
