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
Signing with Maryland.
Winfree wins the returning jobs and scores at least two touchdowns.
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.
Our next player came to Maryland with a coach.
jnforsyth34 makes it a three-way tie for second place.
