At 5-foot-7, Shane Wynn isn’t exactly a big receiver, but he is capable of putting up big numbers.
During Saturday’s Cream & Crimson Spring Game, the Indiana junior caught six passes for 97 yards and two touchdowns in the Cream’s 21-7 victory. Both of the scoring plays came with Cam Coffman at quarterback for the Cream team, covering 22 yards in the first quarter and 16 yards in the third quarter.
Wynn led the Hoosiers last season with 68 receptions for 660 yards and six touchdowns. On Saturday, he caught six passes for 97 yards and two touchdowns as the Cream defeated the Crimson 21-7.
Wynn joked that because of his size, he makes it his priority not to get hit.
“I don’t like getting hit, so I just beat everybody — or try to beat everybody,” said Wynn. “The main thing is just running fast and playing fast and making people miss.”
Cody Latimer also had a big day with four catches for 62 yards, including a 37-yard touchdown pass from Nate Sudfeld. Duwyce Wilson made four catches for 50 yards and Isiah Roundtree had two receptions for 42 yards.
Indiana quarterbacks Coffman, Sudfeld and Tre Roberson combined for 424 passing yards and three of the four touchdowns that were scored.
Wynn agrees with IU head coach Kevin Wilson that the competition for the starting quarterback job is too close to call at the moment because each of the three have different strengths.
“It’s a different velocity of ball from Tre, Cam and Nate,” said Wynn. “Nate and Tre have a touch, but Cam’s got a laser. Cam got the ball to me real quick. Like I said, he throws a laser.”
And Wynn runs like the wind.
“Especially my being little, you’re just trying to do things that they don’t think you can do,” he said.
