Winchester, a 6-4 guard who produced nearly as many turnovers (55) as baskets (61) during his two seasons on The Hill, has transferred to Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Conn. A Parade All-American in high school, he is originally from Stamford, Conn.
Herndon and Winchester were part of Buzz Peterson's ill-fated 2002 signing class. One member of that class -- point guard C.J. Watson -- became an immediate starter. But junior college transfer Justin Albrecht has been a non-factor to date, Stanley Asumnu has been terribly erratic, while Herndon and Winchester contributed next-to-nothing before transferring.
The meager contribution from the Class of '02 has been a major reason UT basketball has struggled under Peterson, whose first three seasons produced records of 15-16, 17-12 and 15-14.
