The Best of the B1G, #21 Shane Wynn

b1g_iconShane Wynn is the smallest player in the B1G at 5’7″ and 163 lbs. But the tiny WR from Cleveland Glenville High School puts up giant numbers for the Indiana Hoosiers. He is a prime example of a guy who wasn’t recruited by larger more more successful CFB programs and had to fight his way onto a B1G team. he was lucky that Kevin Wilson the HC at Indiana saw something special in the speedster. He offered him a scholarship and Wynn joined the 2011 recruiting class and right away proved his worth to Coach Wilson and the Indiana program. His Freshman year he spent most of his time on Kickoffs but was super successful at it. He saw some limited time at WR as well. His Sophomore year though he broke through as a full time WR and left the KO returns behind for the most part. Shane is in the perfect system for his talents. He is one of the fastest guys in the country and Coach Wilson uses that speed on quick slants and short passes that allows for Wynn to make a move and gain a lot of yards after the catch.

If Indiana is going to continue to improve on the field they will need Shane Wynn to be even better than he already has been. The Junior will also be relied on to be a leader on and off the field for a team that is still trying to build its brand and become a better program under Coach Wilson. Shane Wynn finished 2nd in the B1G in 2012 in total catches with 68 catches, 8th in total REC. yards with 660 rec. yards, 6th in REC. TDs with 6 TDs, 2nd in receptions per game with 5.6, and 8th in rec yards a game with 54 ypg. In order for Indiana to improve on their 4-8 mark from 2012 he will have to get better at every stat which we at Motsag believe he will.

  1. Little speedsters like this are fun to watch. But that size ultimately becomes a detriment when going up against big strong corners. But good for Shane for making the most of his situation. He should put up big numbers in Indiana’s high powered offense.
