Winston Looking At Five

Apparently, Pritchard (AL) Blount forward Kennedy Winston has his final list of five schools in order. He'll take his official visits in October before making a decision.

Winston Looking At Five

Kennedy Winston, a Top 25 swingman, will visit five schools, most likely in October, he said on Tuesday. Alabama, Auburn, Georgetown, Cincinnati and California comprise his short list.

"I made some dates, but I don't know them by heart," Winston said. "They are all in October." Winston is free to make his trips because he's already taken the ACT but will retake it again. He's close on the test and shouldn't have any problems in that area.

"I'll look at the playing time, the staff and how they'll work with me to get me better. Staying close [to home] doesn't really matter that much."

Winston, the 5-A Alabama Player of the Year as a junior, rocketed up the recruiting lists with fine performances at the Tournament of Champions, Nike Camp and Big Time in Las Vegas when he played alongside Lenny Cooke with Prep Stars International. "[The talent] was there all the time. I didn't really start getting recognized until now. I think I was just one of those underrated guys."
