Small forward Justise Winslow has been busy on the recruiting front lately, and we should expect a trim down of his list soon. He is currently at eight, but we should expect it to be down to five by November.
For the moment though it seems Winslow is enjoying the process as his mother intended, and the young man has certainly earned this. Winslow won a gold medal with the US U-19 squad this summer and it will be interesting to see if his relationship with head coach Billy Donovan will make a difference in the end.
“We went to Texas A&M last weekend and this weekend we’re going to Florida,” Robin Davis, Winslow’s mother, told SNY.tv by phone.”We’re just taking it one weekend at a time. I just want him to enjoy his high school, that’s one of the most important things for me right now, for him to have fun.”
Winslow just finished up his visit to Florida and so Gator fans will hold their breathe in the coming months. Winslow will eventually have to cut his list to five, but he is not quite ready yet.
“It’s hard, the whole process has been hard, but it’s something I gotta do just to move forward so I can get closer to making a decision,” Winslow said to SNY.tv. “It’s hard, but it’s something I gotta do.”
Winslow, by my money, will end up with top ranked center Jahlil Okafor. But you never know what can sway these young men one way or the other.
