Before Nebraska (Cherry Creek HS)
Lynn provided a strong blocking presence at Cherry Creek High School, one of the top programs in the Colorado Class 5A ranks. As a senior, Lynn helped Cherry Hills and Coach Dave Logan to a 12-2 record and a state runner-up finish. During his junior season, Lynn helped Cherry Creek post a 9-3 record and reach the state playoffs.
Lynn’s blocking keyed an explosive offense that averaged 233.7 rushing yards per game. Lynn earned second-team All-Colorado honors as an offensive tackle for his work in 2017. Lynn was also a member of Cherry Creek’s varsity squad as a sophomore when the school posted a 9-4 record and reached the state semifinals. Lynn is ranked among the top five players in Colorado and among the top 75 offensive tackle prospects in the nation by both Rivals and 247Sports.
Lynn only visited Nebraska, but had a number of offers including Arizona, Arizona State, Oklahoma State, Penn State, Utah and Washington State.
