Masyn Winningham (White County) gifted the @PrepHoopsTN/AboveTheRimGym Fall Combine with freakish shooting consistency.  Though Winningham just missed earning MVP, he did finish as the 4th best competitor on-site. 

Masyn entered the mid-October event ranked #76 in the @PrepHoopsTN State Rankings.  To be precise, Masyn’s performance at the combine is NOT factored into that ranking as this #76 was decided upon prior to.  Keep an eye to the updated 2020 rankings, likely to be released by December 1st.

College Projection: D3/D3+.

Incredible shooter. Best practice shooter I witnessed since Grant Hurst in June. As a shooter, Winningham is up there with Mason McKnatt (PrepHoopsTN #65), Brevin Klym (’22), Grant Hurst (PrepHoopsTN #30).  Exceptional one dribble pull up and catch-and-shoot.

Tough against contact.

Doesn’t play above the rim.  Winningham recorded a peak reach of 10-feet and 1-inch.  Obviously this indicates he can and does finish with finger-rolls and layups.  Considering how incredible Winningham is shooting from 4′ to 20′ his inability to pound the ball home is not concerning. 

D3 starter by junior season of college.  It is conceivable that Masyn could sign NAIA or Division II, but DIII feels like the ideal level for him to not just play, but thrive.

Definitely a college prospect. 

Masyn’s wingspan is sub-6’0″.   Wingspan doesn’t change with more effort and Winningham can’t do anything it, but that is slightly discouraging.  As a perimeter defender, the bigger you can make your body without suffering any lateral mobility the better.  Winningham showcased quick change of direction with a swift 11.56 lane agility time. 

A known danger to White County opponents, Masyn is certain to make a bigger splash statewide.  His shooting skill is among the best in the state.  His team is deep in the backcourt.  Expect big things from Masyn Winningham this season.
