Brandon Winton Jr., a standout wide receiver from Alcoa High School, has committed to the University of South Florida (USF) and coach Alex Golesh. Winton shared the news of his commitment on social media, citing the feeling of knowing that he had found his perfect fit.
Winton is a highly ranked prospect with a 3-star rating from 247Sports Composite. As the No. 88 wide receiver in the country, and the No. 20 player in the state, he has certainly made an impact in the local football scene. This made him a hot commodity for college recruiters; Winton had offers from several prominent schools, including Tennessee, Penn State, and Boston College.
However, Winton ultimately chose USF and its new coach, Alex Golesh. Golesh has an extensive background in college football, having most recently served as Tennessee’s offensive coordinator and tight ends coach. He undoubtedly had a significant influence on Winton’s decision to commit to USF.
This is an excellent addition for USF, which will be looking to improve on their record from last season. With Winton’s skills as a receiver, the team should be able to improve their overall offensive capabilities significantly. The Alcoa standout is known for his agility and speed, both of which are essential traits for a top-level receiver.
Winton’s decision to commit to USF marks a significant achievement for the school’s football program, which has steadily improved in recent years. With coach Golesh at the helm and star recruits like Winton, we can expect nothing but great things for USF in the coming season. Fifth Quarter congratulates Winton on his commitment and wishes him the best of luck moving forward!
