Basketball Recruiting: Justise Winslow Names Top Eight Schools


According to Dave Telep on the ESPNU broadcast of the AAU Super Showcase, 2014 Justise Winslow has cut his list to eight schools. The schools in his top eight are the Duke Blue Devils, Florida Gators, Kentucky Wildcats, Kansas Jayhawks, Texas A&M Aggies, Arizona Wildcats, UCLA Bruins, and Stanford Cardinal.

There should be no surprise that Duke and Arizona are in Winslow’s top eight because, according to 247 Sports, they are receiving the most interest from the 2014 prospect.

They are the only schools that are predicted to land Winslow on the 247 Sports Crystal Ball with nine out of the sixteen experts predicting that he will land with the Blue Devils.

The biggest surprise on the Houston, TX native’s list is the Kentucky Wildcats. John Calipari and the Wildcats only recently extended him an offer, but that was still enough to boost them into his top eight.

Winslow is an athletic and versatile small forward. At 6’6″, 210 pounds, he has great size and displays impeccable defending and rebounding skills.

He can finish and score at the basket, and is an effective passer. The only aspect of his game that needs development is his shooting.

Justise Winslow is a five-star recruit and is currently ranked 5th in the state of Texas, 5th among small forwards, and 17th nationally among 2014 high school recruits by 247Sports.
