The Syracuse Orange coaching staff has a lot of ties to Northern Illinois. And we're going to start tearing those ties down as we start taking their recruits away from them, starting with Riverview Gardens High School wide receiver Corey Winfield, who verballed to SU according to various recruiting sites.
Winfield, (6-foot-1, 175 pounds) was previously committed to Northern Illinois, but changed to SU following a campus visit last weekend and an in-home visit early this week from Orange coaches.
Rivals.com and ESPN.com has Winfield rated as a three-star prospect, while Scout.com gives him two stars.
Winfield had offers from Purdue, Wyoming, Western Kentucky, Arkansas St., Ball St. and Miami(OH). He's also an accomplished track & field athlete.
