El Paso, TX (KTSM) — After suffering an extreme lack of depth at the guard position, UTEP head coach Tim Floyd made it a priority to recruit, which he did, but he also found one big man who may be a hidden gem; forward Trey Winn.
Winn averaged a double-double (24 ppg/13 rpg) in his lone season at Westwind Preparatory Academy after playing at Melrose High School in Memphis as a senior.
"I'm a high energy guy. I like to get up and down the floor. I rebound the ball real well. I play around the rim but I can also play on the perimeter," said Winn. "I think I can post up smaller guards and bigger people I can take them off the dribble."
“Terry is somewhat of a midsize player who can help us at multiple positions,” Floyd said. “He will help us defend against undersized players. He can score both in the post and make plays in the open court. He made a lot of improvement to his game with his year at Westwind. He has great feet and will really be able to defend. He is also a very explosive athlete. He has a strong ability to rebound out of his area.”
