St. Louis native Corey Winfield is all kinds of fast. He signed with SU today.

Under Doug Marrone, it didn't look like we were planning to take many wide receivers in this class. Offensive coordinator/greatest living human George McDonald has other plans...plans that include Missouri burner Corey Winfield.

Stat Me: 18 catches for 389 yards and nine touchdowns, and an insane six kick return touchdowns. Move over Ritchy Dene, Ricky Rene, others with similar names.

Seein' Stars: Scout - 3*, Rivals - 3*, 247 - 2*, ESPN - 3*

Who's Crying: Arkansas St, Ball St, Miami, Mizzou, Northern Illinois, Purdue, Western Kentucky, Wyoming

Money Quote: High school coach Kenric Walker:

His hands are awesome. He is a field-stretcher...the best blocking wide receiver I've ever coached.

Which SU Coach Gets a Bonus?: Sounds like this was a group effort, but it's always safe to credit George McDonald.

Fun Fact: Not only does Corey run back kicks at an alarming rate, but he also does pretty well in the classroom. He has a 3.4 GPA and is looking to study engineering at SU.
