Winston is great, just not for Alabama 

February, 3, 2012
There were months spent chasing Jameis Winston, years really. There were in-home visits, phone calls arranged and, no doubt, promises made. Since the time he threw his first pass at Hueytown (Ala.) High, the University of Alabama coaching staff wanted him in crimson and white.

What isn’t there to like about him? He can throw the ball from here to Homewood. He’s the No. 1 quarterback in the country for a reason. He’s shifty, quick and strong. He sniffs out the endzone like a hungry coed seeks out the sweet scent of barbeque on gamedays in the fall.

Winston is the real deal. He is built to play quarterback.
