A really sad story out of New Orleans, as defensive lineman Devin Winters has died. Winters was a two-star prospect from New Orleans and was a top 100 player in Louisiana.
According to his 247Sports profile, Winters had offers from several schools, including the Kansas Jayhawks.
The information appears to be limited as of Friday evening.
We don’t have any additional information on this as of now, but we will work on it. RIP Devin Winters. Always a horrific tragedy when a young life is taken from us. Prayers to the family and to Roneagle Nation. #nolaprep https://t.co/wzr83AZT59
