A few days back, we were wondering if the Charlotte 49ers would be able to close the deal with Monroe (NC) two-way Tre’shun Wynn.
Mission accomplished. Wynn verballed to the Niners today, a key piece for the team as they look forward to FBS play in 2015.
Wynn’s coming off a year where he appeared in the 2014 Shrine Bowl and was named to the AP All-State team. App State, Duke, ECU and N.C. State had also offered, but it was thought that the Niners and ECU were Wynn’s final two. He racked up over 1,000 yards running and recorded over 40 tackles on defense in 2013. ESPN.com has him as the 43rd ranked recruit in the entire state; he is a three-star recruit on 247Sports and Rivals.com while Scout has him at two stars.
A couple more signing notes: The Charlotte Observer’s David Scott reported last night that the Niners had signed tight end Richard Murphy from Butte (CA) Junior College. Murphy, a member of the team that won the California state championship and was named national co-champion, can play right away since he is a JUCO transfer.
Also, Delaware State quarterback Garrison Duncan announced on his Twitter that he was transferring to Charlotte; he will have to sit out a year since the Niners are in their FBS transitional period. Duncan is the older brother of Niner verbal Zach Duncan, who originally committed to Ball State but flipped and decided to stay closer to home.
