Miami RedHawks get commitment from local linebacker 

Max Wynn won’t have to go far to continue his football career. 

The Centerville linebacker announced Sunday he has verbally committed to Miami University. 

The 6-foot-1, 220-pound Wynn had 35 tackles in five games for the Elks last season.

He is Ohio’s No. 56 player in the 247Sports Composite rankings and a three-star prospect. 

As a junior, Wynn logged 96 stops, including 2.5 sacks, and forced four fumbles en route to first-team All-GWOC recognition.

He committed to Akron in June, but the Zips announced last week coach Terry Bowden would not be retained after seven years on the job. 

Coach Chuck Martin’s 2019 Miami class ranks No. 68 nationally and No. 2 in the MAC after adding Wynn, the No. 60 linebacker in the country. 

He is the second-highest-rated recruit in RedHawks class, trailing only Brett Gabbert, a quarterback from St. Louis.
