Lyn, 6-feet and 195 pounds, talked more about why he chose NIU.
"I liked the whole atmosphere," he said. "Ihey did a great job of making you feel at home. It was cold, even snowing, but I'm OK with that."
On the field, Lyn knows what an opportunity lies ahead of him.
"It's up to me," he said. "If I work hard and do what I gotta do to prepare I can go in and play right off the bat. I'm excited about that."
That was his first official visit and says he has two more planned.
"I'm supposed to go to Syracuse this weekend and then Marshall the week after," he said. "I'm still debating on whether or not to take those. I'll make a decision on that a little later."
