John Winston, 6-3 SR PG Richmond (Calif.) Salesian, was very impressive yesterday in two games at the Big Time. Winston showed great court vision and consistently found teammates for open looks. He isn't going to beat you with his outside shot, but he's certainly among the best passing point guards in the west.
We spoke with Winston yesterday afternoon and he told us that two schools are now at the top of his list. "I like Oregon," Winston said. "I was very happy when they called me. I know they're after Aaron Brooks, but I like them a lot. And UNLV is the other school that's at the top of my list now."
Winston said that Nebraska, Pittsburgh, Colorado, Fresno St. and Tulane were among the other schools that have been expressing interest lately.
Don't look for a decision from Winston anytime soon. "I'll take some trips in September," Winston said. "And then I'll make my decision after I've had a chance to see some schools."
