Because Winston was known in national athletic circles for years, there had to be an early recruiting plan. His first verbal college scholarship offer came from Georgia Tech in the ninth grade. Antonor Winston, Jameis' father, told Warchant.com that he sat in with Hueytown coaches while pretending to be an assistant so he could see what the process was like.
