Dwight Morrow (N.J.) athlete Juwann Winfree made his way down to Maryland on Sunday, something he had been looking forward to ever since leaving College Park last fall when the Terps played Georgia Tech.

"Things were great," said the 6-foot-2, 180-pounder. "It was my first time really getting a tour of the school. I enjoyed it.

"We got there and I introduced myself to Deon Long, then they took us to see the coaches and all around the facility and the field. I got to see the dorms and I really liked the pool and the recreation center."

In the midst of the campus-wide tour, the four-star prospect also had an opportunity to speak with his potential position coach, Lee Hull.

"I spoke with the receiver coach in the meeting room for a while," Winfree said. "He said they only want to take one receiver in this class and that I should be that guy. He said that I fit in well with their offense and if Deon [Long] has a great season or two and goes into the draft, that could be an early spot for me."

With offers from Georgia, West Virginia, Pittsburgh and another dozen or so, Winfree says he planned to trim his list down to six schools, announcing them on Twitter. He earlier said that Pitt and Georgia were definitely making the cut, and he says that Maryland is also "safe."

"I really liked all the new renovations they're making," he said. "And with them entering the Big 10 and getting all new stuff, they're headed in the right direction. It looks like a good fit."

Winfree says once he cuts his list down to six he will then make visits to his finalists before making a decision.
