Justise Winslow is one small forward that can't be removed from the list. He's more of a point-forward with his skill set, which means he would be perfectly comfortable at the 1, 2 or 3.
He is also ranked No. 15 on the ESPN 100.
Winslow has an excellent frame at 6'6", 210 pounds, and he already knows how to use it. Usually the physical aspect of the college game is what shocks freshmen, but that won't phase this kid.
Backing down and driving through opponents are the most efficient aspects of his offensive game.
When he's not doing that, he's weaving through traffic to get to the rim, dropping dimes or drilling pull-up jumpers. He isn't quite as efficient as you would like from downtown, though.
It would be nice to pick up a pure shooter in case Hairston leaves with McDonald. Marcus Paige, J.P. Tokoto or Justin Jackson may be able to step up in that role, but there are no guarantees at this point.
That said, Winslow is kind of a risky proposition. However, he can develop as a shooter under the tutelage of Hubert Davis.
And everything else he brings to the game makes him worth the risk.
He's only sitting at No. 3 on this list because there isn't a lot of reported activity going on between Winslow and the Tar Heel coaching staff. This could be a byproduct of all the talk about him joining forces with top prospects Tyus Jones and Jahlil Okafor.
All three are still considering Duke, Baylor and Kansas.
But Winslow has been mum on this topic for the most part. According to FayObserver.com, he did finally admit the possibility of a trio would be a factor.
I don't know if it's a big or little factor, but it is a factor. To be able to go with those guys would make that (team) very elite because they're the top, elite guys.
I want to go to school with them, but all three of us have to do what's best for our families. If it happens we go to school together, all three of us, that'll be the best.
Winslow still could consider other schools. He doesn't seem nearly as dedicated to the idea as Jones and Okafor.
And the Tar Heels would have enough talent to make him happy.
