Guinn has the attitude of a major college football player. Here is something you may find amusing. He allegedly goes up to the coaching staff and asks one of the coaches "who do I have to beat on offense or cover on defense in order to get a scholarship here? Tell me who I have to go up against, and I'll beat him". In retrospect, I don't recall who stopped him.
Now the question with a player like this is how does he project at the next level? Here is a young man that does not pass the eye-ball test, but arguably was one of the top players on the field. On offense, he could not be jammed, he consistently created separation on his routes, could tight rope the sidelines, knows how to time his jumps on the high balls, and showed exceptional hands. And after he catches the ball, he can cut on a dime and gain those valuable yards after catch.
And luckily for RU fans, Guinn is very high on the school. "That is my #1 school by far. The coaching staff and the players up there are like family. I feel so comfortable with Coach Demo. The facilities and weight room are awesome. Antonio Lowery is a good friend of mine and he is up there. If Rutgers were to offer, I would commit on the spot..
Guinn has only attended the Miami Nike camp and ran a 4.6 laser time at that event. He has also run a 4.5 hand time. "I am not a 40 guy. My game is in my quickness, my breaks, and my focus during games."
He next will attend the FIU and Belle Glade 7-on-7 camps. He may also attend a day camp at UCF which he is investigating in to.
Last year, Guinn caught 21 passes for 331 yards and 5 TDs. He will be the main WR in an offense that expects to throw the ball more often this year with the departure of All-State RB John Mosure to Colorado State.
