Small forward Justise Winslow had quite a productive summer, and he is now going to reap the benefits after years of working on his game. He won a gold medal with the US U-19 squad with top ranked center Jahlil Okafor, so it will be interesting to see if he ends up playing with Okafor in the college game.
The UCLA Bruins are hoping that Winslow comes and plays for them, and they have their chance to impress him this weekend with an official visit. Winslow is the ninth best prospect in his class, and for the Bruins sake here is hoping that he has a good visit.

Winslow will also be making his visit to the Duke Blue Devils on October 25th with Tyus Jones and Okafor. Something tells me that in the end, Winslow will have trouble saying no to playing with Okafor again. They tasted a gold medal together and Okafor certainly creates openings on the court, and his skill on the low block is truly unprecedented.
We will keep you posted of any updates to Winslow’s recruitment, and there should be some more news by early November. In the meantime keep an eye out for a piece on Australian star Ben Simmons later today.
