St. Louis (Mo.) University five-star wide receiver Ryan Wingo was in Austin last weekend on an unofficial visit to Texas. The No. 24 prospect in the On3 Industry Rankings will stay home this weekend and be back at Missouri‘s game against Memphis in St. Louis.

Next weekend there was talk that the 6-foot-1.5, 210-pound playmaker could be back at Tennessee for an unofficial visit, but instead, he will spend the weekend in Boulder. Wingo has locked in an official visit to Colorado.

This will be the second time Deion Sanders has had Wingo on campus. His first visit to Colorado came late in January.

“It was a fun visit,” Wingo told On3 after that vist. “It went past my expectations for sure because I’d never been to Colorado, so I kind of thought it was just gonna be real, real cold, kind of a boring city and (it) just really has the football team and stuff like that. But that’s not what I saw when I got there. It was just different. It was a nice place to visit, get to see.”

While in Boulder, Wingo sensed a family-like atmosphere that allows players to be themselves. He saw quarterback Shedeur Sanders, Deion’s son, on his visit.

“It was up there with the top visits I’ve had, for sure. Coach Prime kind of brings the extra spark to it. Comparing it to the other schools, like I said, it’s up there with them, for sure. All the facilities, they’re up there with the others, the feel and everything. It’s a nice place.”

Ryan Wingo On3 Scouting Report

“An electric playmaker who picks up yards in a hurry. Ran a 10.64 100m, 21.46 200m and a 50.72 400m in 2022. The ability to defeat the angle with the ball in his hands is among the best in the 2024 cycle early on. Can take the top off of defenses with ease but is not just a straight line player. His ability to make defenders miss in tight spaces and finish runs is rare for someone with his long speed. Has a chance to be an impact player at the next level. Older brother is former Arkansas running back Ronnie Wingo.”
