Among the rising football talents in the country is ATH Wesley Winn, who has quickly become one of the premier prospects from the 2027 class.
Winn is a natural athlete that's known for his playmaking ability on both sides of the ball, at WR and DB. As he continues to grow and progress, big-time college programs have been enamored with what Winn has to offer.
The California athlete has yet to play a high school down, but worked his tail off to earn the attention of D1 programs. The tantalizing on field talent, mixed with the impeccable young man, is enough to get D1 coaches salivating.
So far, Winn holds offers from Georgia, Indiana, Arizona, UCF, Florida State, Michigan St., UConn, Grambling St, Charlotte, Purdue, Nevada, Portland St, Maryland, Louisville, UNLV, Western Kentucky, and Houston Christian.
Purdue is his most recent offer.

"It feels amazing to receive these offers and I feel very fortunate for the coaches who believed in me," Winn told Youth1.com.
"This says I am an elite player and I have what it takes for the next level. It also says I need to keep getting better," he added.
Winn knows that not all young prospects with talent garner the type of attention he has. He remains humble, hungry, and appreciative of being a highly regarded prospect.
"I feel very fortunate and this notoriety makes me want to work even harder," Winn said.
Winn most recently played for the OC Buckeyes (tackle) and the Cali Power, which is the #1 7v7 team in the nation.
He recently showed out at Rivals, running a 4.5 laser 40, which earned him an invite to Rivals 5-star Challenge. Winn is 1 of 4 athletes from the 2027 class invited out of 100 players. He's also been invited to UA Next, FBU Top Gun, VTO and the Army Bowl Combine.
"I feel that I am progressing well and have been focused on playing varsity in high school in the fall," Winn said when asked about his progress.
"I feel this has been a great offseason for me playing elite 7x7, camping and testing myself at combines. I have been pushing myself in my workouts to enhance my game," he added.
Winn will play high school ball for powerhouse St. John Bosco. He's putting in work this offseason to show off the talent that has D1 programs enamored.
"I am very excited for this upcoming season. I am working to earn a position, as a freshman on varsity, in an elite CA football league," Winn said.
With over 15 offers already, Winn is clearly the type of athlete any D1 program would be lucky to have. Most importantly, he just loves the game.
"I love the game of football. I’m looking forward to Rivals 5-Star Challenge, The Show by NXGN and more college visits in late June," he said.
