Winchester boasted offers from BYU – who Cal recently announced it would face in a 2014/2017 home-and-home series – as well as Colorado, Duke, Fresno State, Houston, Illinois, Kansas, Texas State, Utah and UTEP.

Winchester will make his official visit on Nov. 14, when the Bears square off against Ohio State.

Winchester earned first-team all-district honors as a junior – his first year playing defense -- splitting time between cornerback and free safety, tallying one pick and over 50 tackles for the 8-3 Tigers, who fell to The Woodlands in the first round of the playoffs.
