IWCC DL Winfrey visits Huskers, includes NU in top group

May 27, 2019

If Nebraska is going to forge a fruitful recruiting relationship with Iowa Western Community College, there’s no player Scott Frost’s program would rather get it started with than Perrion Winfrey.

The defensive lineman from IWCC visited Lincoln unofficially this weekend as one of the most sought-after junior college defensive linemen in the country for the 2020 class.

Winfrey is listed at 6-foot-5 and 300 pounds and visited with some of his teammates, writing on social media on Sunday, “I will be back.”

The Huskers would certainly take that in the form of an official visit or another unofficial. Winfrey also included NU in his top eight via his Instagram on Sunday. It’s a stacked group that also includes Alabama, LSU, Oklahoma, Texas, Penn State, Oregon and Florida State.

The breadcrumbs have started between Frost’s program and Scott Strohmeier’s in recent months. The Huskers have walk-on offensive lineman Joshua Wegener joining the program this summer from the Council Bluffs school and former NU linebacker Breon Dixon is going to play this fall for IWCC.

Winfrey, though, if the Huskers beat out a star-studded group of suitors, would easily be the biggest coup so far.
