WR/DB Winfree Planning Visits

Dwight Morrow (Englewood, N.J.) athlete Juwann Winfree saw his scholarship offers triple after working out at the U.S. Army All-American combine as an underclassman. Winfree spoke with ScarletReport.com about the latest in his recruitment and upcoming visit plans.

Dwight Morrow (Engelwood, N.J.) athlete Juwann Winfree plans to take things slow after a series of offers came through between his sophomore and junior seasons. Winfree has not been an active visitor but has Maryland's junior day in his sights and is considering visits to West Virginia and Rutgers.

Winfree saw his recruitment surge after attending the U.S. Army All-American combine and is now excited to begin taking visits.

"I went in there with maybe five offers and I'm up to 14 now," Winfree said. "It's exciting. Going to one of these colleges to play football is my dream. I hope more are coming."

Winfree has no leaders but said visits to Maryland, Rutgers and West Virginia are high priority because of interest and proximity.

"Two of my favorite players are Stefon Diggs and Tavon Austin," Winfree said. "I watch them and their schools a lot and they do the things I want to be able to do in college. So I want to see Maryland and West Virginia because of the offenses they run."

Winfree said he also has interest in playing defensive back, where he is currently being recruited to play at Rutgers.

"I like receiver and [cornerback]," Winfree said. "I could really play either. I especially like corner at Rutgers. I don't have a problem with it. A bunch of good corners have come from there and gone to the NFL, especially the McCourty brothers. I think I can do well there."

Rutgers was one of the first to offer Winfree, who visited for a bowl practice last year and plans to return for a spring practice in April.

"Everything was great and I want to go back," Winfree said. "The first thing they really stressed was the education stuff and that was amazing. I got to see the life of a college athlete. I sat in a meeting with the cornerbacks watching film and then they went out to practice and it was cool to watch."

Winfree said education will be one of his top deciding factors.

"Education is one of the major keys when I go into making my decision," Winfree said. "That's high, like if it's a good school for education and if they have my major (sports management)."
