High School Highlights:

How'd He Get to College Park?

Winfree was one of three blue-chip prospects in Maryland's class of 2014, but is often forgotten about when talking about the accolades of Damian Prince and Jesse Aniebonam. He's a terrific prospect in his own right, however, and should challenge to see the field even in Maryland's crowded wide receiver unit (more on that later).

Winfree was an all-state player at Dwight Morrow, excelling at both wide receiver and cornerback. He was selected to play in the 2014 Offense-Defense All-America Game and played for the New Jersey team in the N.Y. vs. N.J. All-Star Football Classic.

Profiling the entire team

Nickname:

Win Free

Career Highlight:

Signing with Maryland.

Dream Season:

Winfree wins the returning jobs and scores at least two touchdowns.

2014 Prospectus:

Winfree is talented enough that he could make noise in Maryland's wide receiving unit this year, but his more likely role can be found on special teams. He's a talented athlete, and the Terps are unlikely to put Stefon Diggs back in the role due to injury concerns. Maryland has shown a willingness to let a true freshman play there before (see: Likely, Will), and with Likely's starting role on defense Winfree could be the ideal fit.

Up Next:

Our next player came to Maryland with a coach.

Standings:

jnforsyth34 makes it a three-way tie for second place.
