As a third-team all-state defender and big-play receiver from New Jersey, Winfree initially signed with the University of Maryland to play football. He played in eight games for the Terps as a reserve his true freshman season (11-158-14.4, one TD). He was suspended for the final two games of that season, however, and the suspension became indefinite when he again violated the school's conduct code. It was reported that he would transfer to Pitt but he instead attended Coffeyville Community College. Winfree was an honorable mention all-conference selection there in 2015 (55-937-15.2, seven TD). Colorado took a chance on him in 2016 but a torn ACL in August sidelined him for the season. Winfree returned to play in all 12 games (one start) in 2017, catching 21 passes for 325 yards (15.5 average) and two scores. Injuries sidelined him for four games in 2018, though he started 6 of 8 games played (28-324-11.6, two TDs) when healthy.

Overview
Winfree is a talented outside receiver with the size, speed and athleticism to compete for an NFL roster spot despite the myriad of speed bumps that have slowed his race to a roster. In scouting circles he is considered an upside prospect with plenty of meat left on the bone from a developmental standpoint. He could be a candidate to stash and develop.
