T.C. Williams forward Anthony Winbush played in the Suburban-District All-Star game, part of the 35th Annual Capital Classic on Sunday at the University of Maryland’s Comcast Center.
Winbush had originally scheduled a visit to Longwood University, but told them he was no longer interested. Instead, he scored four points and grabbed three rebounds in eight minutes for the Suburban All-Stars. Teamed with fellow Northern Region players like Annandale’s Erik Etherly (21 points) and Westfield’s Maurice Hubbard (six points), the Suburban All-Stars lost 131-128 to the District All-Stars.
The Suburban squad had a chance to send it to overtime with a three-point shot by Eleanor Roosevelt’s Chase Smith, but it fell short at the buzzer.
Winbush though, is now looking forward to focusing on his recruitment, and he’ll be picking a school based on a school’s academics, location and style of play.
Loyola College (Md.) was one of the first schools to offer, and remains in the mix. It remains the only school that he’s officially visited.
But on the heels of a state championship, his list is growing with several Conference USA and Atlantic 10 schools jumping in late.
Winbush, who as a senior averaged 13.6 points, 6 rebounds and 3.5 assists, has scheduled official visits to East Carolina and LaSalle in the coming weeks. Currently, he plans to also visit UCF, Tulane and Saint Louis.
“Everybody has an equal chance,” Winbush said Sunday.
The left-hander could also possibly join former teammate Glenn Andrews at Tulsa or though unlikely, team with fellow senior Travis Berry at East Carolina.
Berry is filtering through interest from Longwood, along with other lower level Division I schools.
Pushed on when to make he’ll make a decision, Winbush added: “It depends if I like [the school] or not.”
