From Charlotte, NC, Winchester was a 2x 2A/3A state champion and 2x All-Conference performer before committing to the UNC Charlotte. Winchester would enjoy a dominant career as a 49er, becoming the 49ers all-time leader in career takeaways (9) and interceptions (7).
He also holds single-season records for takeaways (6, 2015) and interceptions (4, 2015).Winchester’s finest season came in 2015 when he had a career-high 50 tackles (41 solo) with 3.5 TFL, 2 fumble recoveries, 4 interceptions and 5 pass breakups. Despite eye popping numbers in college, Winchester went undrafted due to injury concerns and small school pedigree.
In 2018, the 6’1″ 170 lbs CB will join The Spring League to prove to NFL scouts he belongs on footballs greatest stage.
