David Wingett helped Winnebago to a Class C-1 championship, and now he's playing for Bull City Prep in Durham, North Carolina.

David Wingett is a name that most in and around Nebraska are familiar with. He had a record-breaking career at Winnebago and helped lead the Indians to a 2015 Class C-1 state championship.

Last summer Wingett decided to reclassify to the 2019 class and attend a postgraduate school. He chose Bull City Prep in Durham, North Carolina.

Wingett averaged 20.8 points and 4.9 rebounds in his career at Winnebago. In 11 games in November and December, Wingett averaged 25.8 points and 6.2 rebounds, including a 50-point performance against Orangeburg (S.C.) Prep Academy. Other Bull City stats are unavailable.

One of the reasons Wingett chose the postgraduate route was to reset his recruitment. The decision has paid off for him. Wingett holds scholarship offers from Illinois-Chicago, Iona, Jacksonville State, Maryland-Eastern Shore and Delaware State.

"Lately I've gotten a lot of interest from schools like N.C. State, Rutgers and Wichita State," he said. "New schools are calling every week, it's starting to really pick up for me."

As far as visits, Wingett is starting to get those set up and will most likely take all five of the official visits the NCAA allows him to take.

"UIC, Coastal Carolina and Iona are in line for visits," he said. "But I will definitely be taking more."
