Winfield loved his official to Syracuse this past weekend, but was not ready to commit until his parents had a chance to meet new head coach Scott Shafer. Shafer paid the Winfield family a visit on Tuesday, and it sealed the deal.
"Coach just left my house, and yes I did commit to Syracuse!" Winfield told CuseNation.com via text. The 2-star prospect was previously committed to Northern Illinois.
The 6-foot-2 wideout is the 15th commitment in Syracuse's 2013 class. Winfield also has the distinction of being the first verbal commit in the Scott Shafer era.
