Edsall Gets His Man: Winfree a Terp

Maryland put forth all their effort to land a single playmaker at the wide receiver position in 2014, and it paid off today with a commitment from Dwight Morrow (NJ) athlete Juwann Winfree.

Winfree committed to Maryland today.

The four-star, .9018-rated recruit had originally trimmed his list down to six schools - Georgia, N.C. State, Pittsburgh, West Virginia, Vanderbilt and Maryland. However, he recently admitted that Maryland, Georgia and Pitt were separating themselves from the others.

In the end, the 6-foot-2, 180-pounder decided Maryland was the school for him, in large part due to the Terrapins push to make him their only receiver.

"Maryland only wants to take one receiver," he told 247Sports earlier this month. "So they keep pushing for it to be me."

After his official visit for the neutral site game against West Virginia, Winfree said that, combined with his ability to see the team in action, had him thinking commitment.

"It was something to think about,” he said when asked about verbaling to the Terrapins at the time.

With his pledge, Maryland now has 11 commitments in the 2014 class, seven of which are on offense. As the nation's 13th-ranked athlete, Winfree is the third four-star commitment so far in this class according to 247Sports.
