Winston eyes his visits

Little Rock Parkview tight end Marc Winston has Arkansas ahead of five other schools.

Marc Winston, the 6-7, 235-pound tight end from Little Rock Parkview, said that Arkansas is the clear frontrunner as he begins to take his official visits.

"It's my home state school, I know what the situation is up there and know that early playing time is available," Winston said. "I also really like the coaching staff and think it would be just a great choice for me."

But Winston, whose dad Billy and uncle Dennis "Dirt" Winston were former Razorback players, will take at least three official visits to other places before making a decision.

He will be at Duke this weekend, will go to Florida on Jan. 16-18 and visit Alabama Jan. 23-25.

"I will also probably visit Stanford and then use the fifth one for either Arkansas or Tennessee," Winston said. "It's probably going to be Arkansas if Tennessee doesn't get moving and get something set up pretty soon. The thing about Arkansas is that I don't really need to take an official visit. I am at almost all the home games and know exactly what I am looking at in that situation."

Winston, also a very good basketball player who is likely to play that sport in college as well, got his hoops season opened last Tuesday with an 18-point performance in an 11-point win over Pine Bluff, the team that beat the Patriots in the state championship game last season.

"I could have played better, but it was a great way to start the year," Winston said. "I think we are going to have a great team."
