DITR: TE Maddox Lynch, Warren Central High School (Vicksburg, Mississippi)

Maddox Lynch is a 6’5, 230 pound tight end who bullies defenders. You can’t jump with him; he dominates the air and crushes tacklers.

Lynch is a member of the 2025 class. He demonstrates a good understanding of his size and position, using his large frame to bull over tacklers when blocking. Lynch also understands his ability as a blocker, and uses it to get himself open on release routes. He loves to catch over the middle, given contact does not faze him, as well as catching in the air. His tall frame and catch radius make him practically unable to be guarded on 50/50 balls.

He has versatile hands that allow him to work as a receiver or a blocker. He tracks the ball well, especially for a tight end, and uses his large hands to encase the football. This is partially why he cannot be defended on 50/50 balls. Lynch also has a good understanding of defensive schemes, being calm against zone coverages and routinely finding that “sweet-spot” on seam routes.

He’s going to be a monster addition for whatever college he should land with. He already has an offer from SE Missouri, but should continue to gain offers throughout his senior campaign. Having a player like Lynch instantly raises an offense’s production and efficiency. He has yet to record a vertical jump, but he leaps through the air on film. He also has a 4.8 40-yard dash, which should improve as he continues to develop.

Essentially, whatever college Lynch lands with will gain a near-guaranteed catch. His ability to dominate at the catch point could make him vital for crucial, short yardage situations- and that’s not even mentioning his possible redzone looks.

His speed, for his size, also makes him versatile. Not only can he snag a tough reception for crucial yards, his physicality and speed will allow him to earn even more after. Also, with him being a skilled blocker, his speed makes him valuable for screen plays and downfield blocks.

Lynch is a two sport athlete in the 2025 class. He’s a strong, physical tight end, who offers value as a blocker and a receiver. He’s athletically sound, especially for his size and should be a monster addition for whatever institution he lands with. As Lynch looks to carry his momentum into his senior campaign, every major college will want to have him on their radar.
